Transcript

• 1. Building a house? Not a real one a sketchup one!
• 2. Tricky, Tricky
• Getting used to sketchup can be tricky
• Before starting I would recommend you have a play with the tools.
• Make sure you get used to all the angles, you going to need them!
• 3. Its got a wall and floor and roof!
• We need to start somewhere so a good place is the walls. If you need to add furniture into the house I would start with a floor.
• Start with creating a rectangle using the rectangle tool, or pressing R on the keyboard:
• 4. Extrude – That’s a bit rude?
• We need to make it longer now to make the basic shape of a house.
• We will use the extrude tool from the menu, or press the P key.
• Drag the face you want to pull and drag it to where you want and let go.
• This will make a prism
• 5. A roof?
• We need to make a roof, we are going to make a typical pitched roof!
• Select the tape measure and measure the top line of an end face.
• When you do this it will create a start point an end point and a middle point. We need the middle point to make the roof symetrical.
• 6. Line it all up
• Next we need to draw a line from the corner into the air to make a point
• 7. Bring it down
• Make another line to make a point in the air.
• The program will fill it in.
• 8. Time to pull again
• We now need to use the extrusion tool to pull the roof across the house.
• 9. Boring…
• Now we have a boring white box. We need to apply some textures, windows and doors.
• This is the easy part.
• Go to the window menu and select component, the go back and select materials.
• Here you will see a range of things you can put into your sketch
• 10. Good Luck!
