Hello Tech Hungry Civilian!
In our latest do at home class we are excited to help you explore the wonderful world of 3D design. In this class, we’ll be building a house in Sketchup! We’ll explore the Shape tools, Push/Pull, offsets, material choices, and if you’re feeling adventurous we’ll even make everything with real-world measurements in feet and inches. This project will take between 30 minutes and one hour depending on how detailed you choose to get, and will only require a computer with internet access, though a mouse is recommended!
SketchUp is an easy 3D modeling program for a wide range of drawing applications similar to those used in industries such as architecture, interior design, engineering, film, and video game design. Learning the basics of this program is a useful first step to understanding the process of creating and working on three-dimensional projects in a variety of possible future careers!
Like all Geek Squad Academy content, this activity was designed for students ages 10 to 18.
- 1 computer with internet access
- 1 computer mouse (recommended)
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s create something awesome!
