      Google SketchUp Crash Course
      • SketchUp is a 3D modelling program, allowing the creation, viewing and manipulation of 3D objects.
      • Used by architects, engineers, game developers, interior and industrial designers.
      • DESIGNED TO BE EASY. Not really a “professional” quality 3D program. Used to teach and learn basic 3D modelling concepts, and as a “sketch pad” for professionals for brainstorming and rough work.
      • Users share their designs on the Sketchup 3D Warehouse. They can then be downloaded and used by anyone.
