1. Draw Tools: Most of SketchUp modeling relies on manipulating basic geometric shapes and solids.
 Line
 Rectangle
 Circle
 Arc
 Dimension Entry and Measure
Begin by drawing some basic shapes in the workspace. Try each of the tools a few times.
Control the size of the shapes by inputting dimensions in the MEASUREMENT box at the bottom of the
screen, as shown below:
These tools allow you to SELECT, draw a
LINE, draw a RECTANGLE, draw a CIRCLE,
and draw an ARC.

Draw several shapes, and specify their size. Check the dimensions by using the TAPE MEASURE TOOL.
2. Orbit, Pan and Zoom:
Use this tool
to measure
dimensions. Use this box
to input
dimensions.
Use ORBIT, PAN, and
ZOOM to view the
workspace from
different angles.

3. Move, Copy, Rotate, Offset:
 Move
 Move and Copy
 Rotate
 Offset
Use the MOVE tool to move an object.
Use MOVE combined with the CTRL key to COPY.
Use the LENGTH box to specify distance of object movement.
Use the ROTATE Tool to Rotate an object. You can enter the exact angle in the ANGLE type in, see
below.
NOTE: Pay attention to the Blue, Green and Red AXES. These are indications of orthogonal movement /
modeling. The color of the directional indicator corresponds to the color of the axis of movement.
Use these tools to MOVE,
COPY, ROTATE and OFFSET

4. Groups, Components and Extrusions:
 The difference between GROUPS and COMPONENTS: A GROUP allows you to link a set of
points, lines and surfaces for modeling and editing as a single object. A COMPONENT is similar,
but allows you to edit multiple copies of an object simultaneously by editing just one.
 Before extruding a surface, be sure to group the components that make up the surface (ie the
edges, and surface are separate until you group them).
 Extrude using the PUSH/PULL tool.
Select multiple objects and right click to make either a GROUP or a COMPONENT.
Take a moment to practice both of these actions.
NOTE: Once you have created a GROUP or COMPONENT, you will have to double-click on it in order to
edit it.
Create a COMPONENT as shown in the first image below. Then, use the EXTRUDE tool to extrude the
box, as shown in the second image below.
Use this tool
to EXTRUDE
Select objects
and right-click
to make
GROUPS or
COMPONENTS

5. Part 1 Practice: Practice your skills by making this image (or something like it).
HINTS:
Think geometrically.
Use all the Draw tools, the Push/Pull tool, Rotate, Move, Move+Copy, Group, etc.
Use the type-in to control dimensions.
Pay attention to object snaps and the colored axes to model with better precision.
Have fun.
TAKE A BREAK!

8. Setting Scenes:
 Standard Views
 Parallel Projection v. Perspective
 Saving Scenes
 Scene Manager and Updating Scenes
 Exporting Simple “Animations”
Go to Camera > Standard Views to see the Standard Views.
The Standard Views are Top, Bottom, Front, Back, Left, Right and Iso.
All can be shown as either Parallel or Perspective Projections.
Parallel Projection shows you an orthographic view of the model. Perspective shows the model in
perspective projection.
Try several different views to test this function.
Go to Window > Scenes to bring up the SCENES Box, as shown below.

  • 2. MIT | SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING | FALL 2011 DUSPviz Google SketchUp Tutorial Allison Albericci | 03 February 2012 | 2 © Allison Albericci 1. Draw Tools: Most of SketchUp modeling relies on manipulating basic geometric shapes and solids.  Line  Rectangle  Circle  Arc  Dimension Entry and Measure Begin by drawing some basic shapes in the workspace. Try each of the tools a few times. Control the size of the shapes by inputting dimensions in the MEASUREMENT box at the bottom of the screen, as shown below: These tools allow you to SELECT, draw a LINE, draw a RECTANGLE, draw a CIRCLE, and draw an ARC.
  • 3. MIT | SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING | FALL 2011 DUSPviz Google SketchUp Tutorial Allison Albericci | 03 February 2012 | 3 © Allison Albericci Draw several shapes, and specify their size. Check the dimensions by using the TAPE MEASURE TOOL. 2. Orbit, Pan and Zoom: Use this tool to measure dimensions. Use this box to input dimensions. Use ORBIT, PAN, and ZOOM to view the workspace from different angles.
  • 4. MIT | SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING | FALL 2011 DUSPviz Google SketchUp Tutorial Allison Albericci | 03 February 2012 | 4 © Allison Albericci 3. Move, Copy, Rotate, Offset:  Move  Move and Copy  Rotate  Offset Use the MOVE tool to move an object. Use MOVE combined with the CTRL key to COPY. Use the LENGTH box to specify distance of object movement. Use the ROTATE Tool to Rotate an object. You can enter the exact angle in the ANGLE type in, see below. NOTE: Pay attention to the Blue, Green and Red AXES. These are indications of orthogonal movement / modeling. The color of the directional indicator corresponds to the color of the axis of movement. Use these tools to MOVE, COPY, ROTATE and OFFSET Control distance of object movement here

  • 6. MIT | SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING | FALL 2011 DUSPviz Google SketchUp Tutorial Allison Albericci | 03 February 2012 | 6 © Allison Albericci 4. Groups, Components and Extrusions:  The difference between GROUPS and COMPONENTS: A GROUP allows you to link a set of points, lines and surfaces for modeling and editing as a single object. A COMPONENT is similar, but allows you to edit multiple copies of an object simultaneously by editing just one.  Before extruding a surface, be sure to group the components that make up the surface (ie the edges, and surface are separate until you group them).  Extrude using the PUSH/PULL tool. Select multiple objects and right click to make either a GROUP or a COMPONENT. Take a moment to practice both of these actions. NOTE: Once you have created a GROUP or COMPONENT, you will have to double-click on it in order to edit it. Create a COMPONENT as shown in the first image below. Then, use the EXTRUDE tool to extrude the box, as shown in the second image below. Use this tool to EXTRUDE Select objects and right-click to make GROUPS or COMPONENTS

  • 8. MIT | SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING | FALL 2011 DUSPviz Google SketchUp Tutorial Allison Albericci | 03 February 2012 | 8 © Allison Albericci 5. Part 1 Practice: Practice your skills by making this image (or something like it). HINTS: Think geometrically. Use all the Draw tools, the Push/Pull tool, Rotate, Move, Move+Copy, Group, etc. Use the type-in to control dimensions. Pay attention to object snaps and the colored axes to model with better precision. Have fun. TAKE A BREAK! 

  • 11. MIT | SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING | FALL 2011 DUSPviz Google SketchUp Tutorial Allison Albericci | 03 February 2012 | 11 © Allison Albericci 8. Setting Scenes:  Standard Views  Parallel Projection v. Perspective  Saving Scenes  Scene Manager and Updating Scenes  Exporting Simple “Animations” Go to Camera > Standard Views to see the Standard Views. The Standard Views are Top, Bottom, Front, Back, Left, Right and Iso. All can be shown as either Parallel or Perspective Projections. Parallel Projection shows you an orthographic view of the model. Perspective shows the model in perspective projection. Try several different views to test this function. Go to Window > Scenes to bring up the SCENES Box, as shown below.
