Description
Let’s face it: you live in a world where CAD files must import into SketchUp. And sometimes the result isn’t exactly pretty. Working with other people’s CAD files is a reality. In this class, we’ll work on common practices for cleaning up CAD imports, methods for creating SketchUp geometry from CAD linework, and -- perhaps, most important -- how to prep a CAD file before you bring it into SketchUp. And yes, we’ll also cover exporting your SketchUp model in formats such as .DWG, .DXF, .IFC and even .JPG, .PNG, and .PDF. (Yeah, those matter too!)
