Learn the 3 main benefits to using 3D computer aided design software: ease of translating a visual concept to a digital scaled design, rendering the 3D digital design for realistic presentation, and outputting the 3D digital design as shop drawings, or to computer numeric controlled (CNC) machines.

SketchUp is a popular, free, and easy to use 3D CAD platform used by many. New students will learn through simple assigned exercises. Returning students may immediately start on independent projects with instructor guidance. Group demonstrations, class discussions, and one-on-one attention are used throughout the course to assist each student with their creative designing goals.

Please note: No experience required. Attendance in the first class is mandatory. Project material fees not included. Open Studio Access and Advanced Studio Access times available for additional fee. Natural fiber clothing, long pants, and closed-toe shoes are required while working at CIADC. Complete information given during class #1.
