I have more than twenty! years experience in creative fields, creative production and creative management. I have worked for museums, galleries, universities, the Hollywood TV and movie industry and for the fashion industry. In all that experience, one of my favorite tools for making an idea come alive as a physical reality is Sketchup.
SketchUp is a free software product that allows you to draw and plan 3-d models of anything you might want to build. The tool can be get pretty complex for advanced users, and luckily it is really easy for beginners too.
This is a SketchUp for DIY Builders Lesson
This lesson will show you how to use the free software SketchUp to draw and plan an idea that you want to make into a real physical thing. This program is best for construction type projects and is not the best program for designing models that you want to animate or stress test.
Some objects you can easily draw and plan using StetchUp are:
- props for tv
- props for films
- props for the stage
- art projects
- window displays for fashion
- and oh so many other fun things!
It's easy to start learning new skills. You just have to take the first step and sign up!
