Haunter SketchUp 101: Draw A Coffin Exercise

This very basic class is for people who have never used SketchUp or any CAD program before. SketchUp is a free 3D Computer Aided Design program used by amusement parks like Universal Studios Orlando to document and visualize the attractions for Halloween Horror Nights. Industry notable Leonard Pickel will instruct the attendees in how to use SketchUp(R) to draft and render a 3D, square grid haunted house. Bring your laptop WITH a version of SketchUp already installed (A wireless mouse is required for the proper use of SketchUp). Attendees will receive proprietary CAD files to keep for their use. Go to http://www.sketchup.com/download to download SketchUp for free.
