Component the S**t Out of Everything

Odds are good that if you have been to an action move in the last decade, you have seen a prop designed by Chris Rosewarne. Odds are, at least some portion of that prop was modeled in SketchUp. COme follow along as Chris walks you through his process of creating detailed modeling using native tools and see the power that proper use of components can bring to your models. Even if you do not have interest in modeling props for movies, there is something to be learned in this hands-on workshop!

Getting started with SketchUp and Photoshop

There’s a good chance that you are already using one of the best extensions for SketchUp -- Adobe Photoshop -- just without SketchUp models. In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of organizing SketchUp models for compositing in Photoshop, as well as Photoshop workflows for lighting, layer management, and efficient exports. This is a very hands-on workshop, so a working knowledge of SketchUp and access to Adobe Photoshop are advised.

Hands-On with SketchUp and Procreate

The look and feel of your renderings can make or break a design proposal. In this ahnds-on workshop shows you will learn how to combine the best of SketchUp and Procreate on iPad to deliver professional, artistic renderings in record time. We’ll create hand-drawn renderings depicting three seasons that are compelling enough to sell your design, but vague enough to maintain your design options.
An overview of what you will learn:
- Generating the core linework line drawing using Styles and Scenes
- Selecting and customizing the Sketchy Edges Pen in Procreate
- Exporting the final Sketchup scene to Procreate via iCloud Drive
- Adjusting the line scale multiplier to regulate the line weight of the scene
- Creating the Winter Moonlight rendering (1st of 3 seasons we’ll create)
- Using the Procreate color sampler to “borrow” inspiring color pallettes
- Adding landscape context and entourage in Procreate
- Creating and manipulating interior lighting effects by hand
- Creating shadow effects by hand
NOTE: You will need to have an iPad running SketchUp for iPad and Procreate in order to take this workshop.

Six Secrets of Composition

What makes a 3D model tick? Why are we fascinated by certain models, whereas others just leave us cold? 
Like it or not, some just look better than others. Though difficult to measure, the rules of attraction are nevertheless real. By naming and befriending them, you can start aligning your own models to them.
In this fearless workshop, visual designers Felix Heuman and Anders Lyhagen from Swedish 3D studio Holygon dare pose some hard questions about soft but significant targets. Where other workshops teach merely how to build, this one wants to go further and uncover why.
Aesthetic success is subject to general principles. These need to balance. Is balance boring? Not if the stakes are high. Dare you confront these mystical attractors? Then this workshop is for you.

A SketchUp Workflow for Interior Designers

Many interior designers who know the fundamentals of SketchUp still struggle to follow a clear workflow from the start of a project through client presentation. The good news is that there is a SketchUp map to follow to allow for creativity and iteration at the beginning of a project, as well as refinement, polishing, and packaging near the end. Tammy will share the workflow she uses in her own interior design practice, with a focus on model organization and prepping the model for documentation.

The Accelerated Introduction to SketchUp for Windows (SketchUp 201)

Whether you already have a running (with scissors) start in SketchUp, or you’re interested to refresh on the fundamentals, this workshop delivers the core introduction to SketchUp at an accelerated learning pace. If you’re already a little proficient in SketchUp -- or if you find yourself ahead of the curve in SketchUp 101, you’ll find that the pace of this course is a bit more suited to your learning style.
Expect to cover the same ground as SketchUp 101 (but in one accelerated day, instead of two days!) -- hitting core 3D modeling techniques, model organization, texture application, and lots more! Because this course moves a little bit faster, the workshop will also touch on some deeper 3D modeling workflows.

Documenting Interiors in LayOut

When you look at the drawings people produce in SketchUp, you’ll notice that some seem to pop off the page and grab your attention, while others… just don’t. The difference -- and the way to take your drawings to the next level -- is LayOut. Whether you are presenting to clients, creating details for construction purposes, design documentation is one of the more important steps in the SketchUp workflow. In this workshop, Tammy will teach you how to take your 3D model and turn it into a 2D document. She will cover floor plans, elevations, lighting and electrical plans, and more. Working knowledge of scenes and styles -- or attendance in a SketchUp 101 workshop -- is advised.

Let's just say it out loud, SketchUp isn't great for organic modeling. You know what is? Quad modeling, sub-division, and vertex editing. If those terms make you raise an eyebrow, well, come explore them with me as we break down some advanced modeling techniques, made possible by some pretty amazing extensions, Sub-D, Vertex Tools, and Quad Tools, by ThomThom.
Quad-modeling is a different paradigm than we are used to with SketchUp, so we'll look at key ideas to consider, some tips for keeping your models clean, and try to push the proverbial envelope of SketchUp's capabilities.

Get Hands-On with Layout

LayOut may appear simple, but don’t be fooled: it’s the gateway to creating compelling presentations and any detail or construction documents that you need. Most of your work is done within SketchUp; you just need to set up models to ensure that they give you the results that you want when dropped into drawing sheets.
In this workshop, Paul Hensey -- an experienced SketchUp user, SketchUp Visiting Professional and landscape enginee -- will introduce an efficient workflow for generating professional documents in LayOut.
The workshop will cover:
- Setting up the SketchUp model
- Organizing your model with compontnets, groups, tags and scenes
- Creating custom templates and drawing sheets
- Multiple views in a page
- The power and efficiency of scrapbooks across any project
- Organizing reference files
- Capturing design changes and issuing drawing updates.

The Accelerated Introduction to SketchUp for Mac OS (SketchUp 201)

Whether you already have a running (with scissors) start in SketchUp, or you’re interested to refresh on the fundamentals, this workshop delivers the core introduction to SketchUp at an accelerated learning pace. If you’re already a little proficient in SketchUp -- or if you find yourself ahead of the curve in SketchUp 101, you’ll find that the pace of this course is a bit more suited to your learning style.
Expect to cover the same ground as SketchUp 101 (but in one accelerated day, instead of two days!) -- hitting core 3D modeling techniques, model organization, texture application, and lots more! Because this course moves a little bit faster, the workshop will also touch on some deeper 3D modeling workflows.

Creating practical and aesthetically-pleasing renderings from SketchUp to any rendering program requires an eye for composition and a lot of SketchUp know-how. Camera position, depth of field, material mapping, positioning, styles: all of these impact your output. In this session Duane Addy will walk you through the different techniques you need to know when creating render-ready SketchUp models. Through the use of some of his Tiny Home models, Duane will show how to avoid common mistakes made in SketchUp that inhibit your renderings from reaching their fullest potential.

Modeling for Permit Drawings

As a professional designer, you need a predictable approach to SketchUp that works for any project type; residential or commercial, new construction or renovation, interior design or architecture. During this workshop you’ll learn how to sort your designs by LEVEL / ELEMENT / LOCATION / CONDITION to unlock a wider array of line weights and dynamic hatches, create consultant backgrounds, and make modeling easier. This is easily accomplished with Model Organization Guides (MOG's). With Model Organization Guides (MOG's) you will never have to make nested groups or assign tags ever again! You will also create CAD, Color, and Sketch styles, apply them to scenes, and ultimately create scaled architectural drawings in LayOut. If you are looking for an overview of a proven SketchUp workflow for architecture and interior design, look no further than this workshop!

Don't work for BIM

Have you ever pondered the possibilities of a full BIM workflow in the SketchUp ecosphere? In this presentation M.Moser & Associate’s own Jason Li will share years of experience showing you how their workflows became even more collaborative and efficient once they fully abandoned AutoCAD & Revit for a SketchUp, Layout and Trimble Connect workflow, while including Sustainability and Wellness considerations via PreDesign and Sefaira for added ROI.
Instead of "pursuing BIM”, Use SketchUp to communicate and integrate all disciplines, focusing on solving real problems, and optimizing “Constructibility", while producing BIM deliverables. Be liberated by dropping Revit, and re-thinking why we need BIM.

Just Do the "Fun" Part: How to use SketchUp to create a market for residential schematic design

Brenda Skeel’s company has developed a SketchUp process to do small scale, small budget architecture that clients love. Brenda designed a workflow built with basic native SketchUp tools that focuses on the schematic design phase of residential projects to make good design more available and affordable to the average homeowner.  Unsurprisingly, it is remarkably effective to collaborate with the client in the design process (the “Fun Part”) to facilitate better communication and achieve better results. The process is both valuable and accessible for homeowners and can be flexible and profitable for the architect. In this session, Brenda will use case studies and sample projects to walk through her processes to deliver real-time schematic design solutions and sub-contracted design services built entirely on the SketchUp Pro platform. Expect to walk away with a better idea of how SketchUp can help you deepen client engagement, set better expectations, and create superior design outcomes.

In this presentation, James will present the techniques that let you push your renderings forward from passably realistic to "OMG how can that not be a photo?!!!" There are a variety of "tells" in 3D rendering that can subtly detract from how believable a rendering will appear. In addition, the artist has to take some photographic skill to impart beauty to their work. Learning similar lighting and camera techniques to those of Architectural Digest photographers will allow you to bring a masterful attractiveness to your renders.

Bringing Ideas to Life: From hand sketches to full working drawings in short order

Everything that's created by humans begins as an idea. Designers, architects, builders, and drafters all take part in this process. Turning an abstract or otherwise unviewable idea in one's mind and turning it into something buildable and tangible is an art that Sketchp and LayOut help us facilitate. Walk with Katie from Vancouver Island's Live Edge Design Inc. as they guide you through the steps of creating beautiful, functional pieces of furniture, from a rough napkin sketch of a thought to a full set of working plans that can be handed over to a builder to turn into a touchable reality. During this process, learn how SketchUp can also help with prototyping via 3D printing and CNC.

Making the Most of Match Photo

For many SketchUp users, Match Photo is the tool that they are most intimidated by but it is a process well worth learning. Robert Coolidge’s Match Photo workflow is a combination of techniques that combines measuring for accuracy, modeling from scratch, and Match Photo references (for quick and dirty content). Match Photo can be used to create models from photos as well as place models into the context of a photo. What Hollywood calls a “Matte Shot” can be produced with Match Photo and Photoshop, or entirely within SketchUp by using watermarks. Think of Match Photo as an iceberg of SketchUp possibilities, many which Robert will explore in this session.

Shining a Light on Venue Design

Have you ever thought about the amount of work that goes into designing a performing arts building? How do you satisfy the requirements of the architect while assuring that the layout will accommodate different types of shows? How do you confirm that the shape of the space will work for the lighting equipment that is required? How do you go about ensuring that there are no bad seats? Well, you could always use SketchUp like Philip Heselton does. This session will look into what it takes for Philip to make sure that every venue he works on is a hit!

The Untapped Potential of the Independent SketchUp Network

SketchUp has captured the hearts of individuals, small businesses and hobbyists alike because of its versatile and affordable nature. Small businesses, especially in their early years, are inherently vulnerable to waves of both work floods and droughts. While one business wishes they had more help during one of these waves, another might wish they had less help with idle hands. Is there a way to find an equilibrium, using an interconnected network of floating SketchUp talent to bring the ship steady? What would it take and what tools do we already possess that could make it a reality?

Virtual Mockups: The Devil is in the Details

Design and construction details will occasionally contain redundant or conflicting information when referencing overlapping building areas and systems. This conflict often rises out of the use of “typical” details used by the various partner firms. SketchUp helps blend multiple designer’s details to work through the complications before they’re attempted in the field. Katerina will go over her company’s process for creating the virtual mockups and real-world examples of how they’ve been used.

Leap Into Layout

LayOut may appear simple, but don’t be fooled: it’s the gateway to creating compelling presentations and any detail or construction documents that you need. Most of your work is done within SketchUp; you just need to set up models to ensure that they give you the results that you want when dropped into drawing sheets.
In this workshop, Paul Hensey -- an experienced SketchUp user, SketchUp Visiting Professional and landscape enginee -- will introduce an efficient workflow for generating professional documents in LayOut.
The workshop will cover:
- Setting up the SketchUp model
- Organizing your model with compontnets, groups, tags and scenes
- Creating custom templates and drawing sheets
- Multiple views in a page
- The power and efficiency of scrapbooks across any project
- Organizing reference files
- Capturing design changes and issuing drawing updates.

Making the Most of Match Photo

For many SketchUp users, Match Photo is the tool that they are most intimidated by but it is a process well worth learning. Robert Coolidge’s Match Photo workflow is a combination of techniques that combines measuring for accuracy, modeling from scratch, and Match Photo references (for quick and dirty content). Match Photo can be used to create models from photos as well as place models into the context of a photo. What Hollywood calls a “Matte Shot” can be produced with Match Photo and Photoshop, or entirely within SketchUp by using watermarks. Think of Match Photo as an iceberg of SketchUp possibilities, many which Robert will explore in this session.

We all know that technology is advancing faster than ever before and that there are tools out there that can help improve our workflows, but may not know just what they are or how to use them. Fortunately, we have Ian Warner to fill us in on just what Trimble has to offer. Ian will showcase how SketchUp can be utilized for robotic layout and integrated into mixed reality. Plus he will dive into incorporating laser scanning for  pre-design reality capture and during construction for as-built comparisons to your pre-existing SketchUp models. Finally, Ian will showcase the X7 and FieldLink laser scan of the Vancouver Convention Center and how it was used to create the 3D model in SketchUp by Aaron Dietzen and team!

Keeping the Sketch in SketchUp: A Wholistic Approach to Landscape Design and Communication

Join Angelo has he shares his approach to solving design problems in the field of Landscape Architecture. Starting with data collection and analysis through the use of drones— a process called photogrammetry — Angelo builds technically detailed terrain models that form the foundation for his concept designs to come. From there he applies his artistry to create visually compelling and emotionally engaging images that captivate his clients’ imaginations.
In this session, you will learn to use SketchUp as a bridge between technical site data and the artistic vision you bring to the project as a designer: the result is a highly iterative design process that is both data rich and emotionally engaging.

SketchUp from Point Clouds: Why a laser scanning company developed Undet

Undet is a part of Terra Modus, a laser scanning company focused on reality capture and point cloud processing. It was their frustration in not being able to find suitable tools for their goals that led to them creating the Undet suite of plugins to turn point cloud data into 3D models or 2D drawings. For Terra Modus, there is a real need to use a number of different CAD packages. That's why each Undet version was developed individually to fully leverage the functionality of the CAD package that it’s plugged into… one of which is SketchUp. Come see how Terra Modus leverages Undet and SketchUp to work on their point cloud projects.

SketchUp on the (Job) Site

A truly constructible model completely changes the dynamic of managing custom home construction at the job site. The model can eliminate the need for paper drawings, dramatically reduce onsite supervision requirements, and even enable less experienced subs and teammates to excel. The constructible model also improves the business efficiency of a project, eliminating costly delays and errors and saving labor and materials at every phase. The key elements to developing this model are a project management philosophy, builder integration into the design process, and an enhanced pre-construction phase. Careful choreography of team members is essential, and new workflows may be required, but the end result is a huge boost to job site performance.
In this session, Michael Rath will get hands-on with the constructible models that Trilogy Partners develops and deploys on-site. Michael will demonstrate how these models are developed during pre-construction using a “practice makes perfect” philosophy. Michael will get hands up with the daily schedules built into the model using Scenes, Tags, and a custom Identity Management workflow .The session will examine specific reporting capabilities that empower offsite and onsite Supervisors to manage materials and equipment effectively. Finally, Michael will share the elements of SketchUp’s ‘user-friendliness’ that draw subcontractors in and make their jobs more efficient.

Leap Into Layout

LayOut may appear simple, but don’t be fooled: it’s the gateway to creating compelling presentations and any detail or construction documents that you need. Most of your work is done within SketchUp; you just need to set up models to ensure that they give you the results that you want when dropped into drawing sheets.
In this workshop, Paul Hensey -- an experienced SketchUp user, SketchUp Visiting Professional and landscape enginee -- will introduce an efficient workflow for generating professional documents in LayOut.
The workshop will cover:
- Setting up the SketchUp model
- Organizing your model with compontnets, groups, tags and scenes
- Creating custom templates and drawing sheets
- Multiple views in a page
- The power and efficiency of scrapbooks across any project
- Organizing reference files
- Capturing design changes and issuing drawing updates.

Objects in Abstraction: Designing Emotion

Not everything designed in SketchUp is intended to be seen in a floor plan. Often as designers we are called upon to create a model of an object. Straight-line drawing is often boring, static, and lacks a certain artistic spirit. It does not communicate how an object is going to make you feel. No emotions are being conveyed. And the whole reason to create anything is to invoke emotion. Jason Pickens is a designer with a history of designing for specialty fabrication and he knows all about designing objects of every conceivable shape and material. Learn how Jason uses SketchUp to generate quick sketches of these objects to keep his clients engaged and ultimately book work. In this session, explore the ways Jason uses Sketchup (and more importantly Layout) to communicate this "emotion" through drawings; starting with the very first sketch.

3D Scanning with Canvas: The easiest way to bring existing conditions into SketchUp

Most home improvement projects, such as remodeling and interior design, start with hours of tedious measuring and then building out the existing conditions in SketchUp. Canvas is an iPhone and iPad app that lets you jump straight to design. Instead of spending hours taking measurements with a tape measure or laser distance measure, you can scan rooms in about a minute and the average home in about 20 minutes. Then, instead of spending hours generating a SketchUp "as-built" from your measurements, the Canvas Scan To CAD service generates a fully editable, properly tagged SketchUp file in as little as one business day. In this session, you'll learn how to scan spaces with ease, how to integrate Canvas into your workflow, and how to calculate Canvas's impact on your business's bottom line.

The Way of the Wise SketchUp Interior Designer

Many interior designers have plugins that help them improve their speed, shortcuts that help them navigate their models efficiently, and workflows that eliminate duplication or make-work. These processes are their SketchUp wisdom, accumulated from experience across many projects.
In this presentation, Joanne of Swisterski Design, a Toronto-based interior design company, reveals the 'secrets' she's picked up over the years that help her churn out project after project, from construction documentation to Vray renderings. This session will break down SketchUp wisdom across:
- Shortcuts. Toolbars are handy, but SketchUp takes off when you adopt shortcuts that help you get the most of your keyboard, moving in SketchUp more at the pace of your design thinking.
- Model management and triage. Are you weighing down your model with polygon-heavy furniture pieces and high res materials? Joanne will review life-saving extensions and when to deploy them.
- Working and presenting tight spaces. Interior design is often, inherently, inside, often leading to camera-crippling navigation experiences. What are the best ways to manage these spaces for model making and presentation?
