|IGETC:||Transfer Area|| ||Effective:||Inactive:
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Use SketchUp software to produce 2D and 3D scale models using primarily
the mouse tool as input.
2. Produce accurate perspective drawings from basic construction plans and
two-dimensional drawings of objects.
3. Produce simple rendered surfaces for presentations, for architecture,
landscapes, interiors, and construction details, including 3D detailing to
generate isometric details.
4. Import and export files from sources such as AutoCAD, 3DS files, raster
based files, and a variety of other rendering and modeling packages.
5. Repeating students will use updated versions of SketchUp and/or apply p
rogram to advanced projects.
