SketchUp is one of the most common programs for architectural modeling. It often stands by the architects in its stages with its easy interface and fast-to-grasp system. Moreover, SketchUp can work in conjunction with V-ray, the world’s most common rendering engine. As a modeling software, SketchUp can be used to make any design. In contrast, the architects/designers extend the program to the third dimension, mainly while developing their projects. But engineers or drafters also write from SketchUp to make custom drawings like the parts of machines.
SketchUp is a necessary modeling program that is critical in architectural and interior architecture education. The reason why it is preferred among modeling programs is that it is easy to learn. This feature saves a lot of time; when you learn SketchUp, you will easily make 3D models of your projects.
The SketchUp program is a straightforward program with Layout and Style Builder additional programs and a rich program with plugins. It is for producing models quickly on plans, sections, and views transferred from the programs used in 2D drawing that are used in offices related to architecture. It is compatible with most programs in the industry and highly preferred because it is straightforward and easy to learn. You will also need it throughout your university life and will be at the top of the skills you will add to your portfolio in your business life. SketchUp program is used in most of the architecture and interior architecture offices in the world.
On the BackStudio Milan platform, you will learn SketchUp by drawing the plans, sections, views, model, and environment of a project, and you will have produced a project for your portfolio. You will learn and use the SketchUp program in the best way for interior design and architectural education when you finish the course.

You will learn how to use the SketchUp program in architecture and interior architecture in a much more effective way to learn the plans, sections, views, model, and environment of a house project you have chosen. Instead of learning SketchUp as a technical drawing course, we aim to teach you more qualified and useful tools, shortcuts, and tricks in your school or business life. We provide this course with our qualified architect tutors working in our organization by contributing to your architectural life.

Goals and Objective
You have the opportunity to take this course at beginner, intermediate or advanced level, depending on the result of the placement test you will do after registering on our platform. You can adjust and plan your schedule according to the availability of the instructor.
For the students to develop their projects, they should also spend their own efforts after the lesson. Therefore, there should be approximately one week between each lesson. One-on-one lessons are scheduled 2 days a week for 4 weeks. Each lesson lasts 2 hours in this course.
Creating two and three-dimensional designs such as plans, sections, sights, and models, etc.
