    Sketchup is like playing with Lego, but adults are reminded that it's not okay to put your brick building creations in the toilet. The best way to learn sketchup is from an interior designer. They will teach you how to build professional models of rooms and create styles on them from a CAD standpoint. If they give you their design files, take ownership of them and run with it. Thus, we conclude our lesson on how to design professional room models in SketchUp for free, enjoy this link if you want more info on CAD plugin for SketchUp.

    The best way to learn Sketchup is to either take a course in it from an interior design degree program, or pick up a book/video series and do some self paced learning. SketchUp is an open-source application, meaning that it also has a lot of tutorials online so you can find one that suits your current skill level. SketchUp provides 3 dimensional modeling and drawing tools with varying degrees of detail for helping aspiring architects, designers, sculptors, movie set-makers etc., however the tool does not provide data for two critical properties of objects: color and texture.

    SketchUp is software that’s as easy to use as a pencil, yet powerful enough for industrial design. SketchUp comes in three flavors: Basic, Professional and Maker. Home users can get SketchUp free from the Tools menu at the top of this page. Installing it is quick and easy. Professional designers, architects and other professionals will be drawn to the Professional Edition thanks to its built-in tasks such as exporting images quickly or drawing 3D geometry precisely with precision controls on shape types, scale factors or curvature perimeters.

    The best way to learn sketchup is to take a course where someone who uses it every day will teach you. When one has a specific question, I have found that asking in the sketchup forums might be helpful. I also love the little tutorial videos on YouTube by Free SketchUp Lessons and Lil Space Designer. There are also tons of tutorials you can find online as well as through books like Free Basic Sketck-Ups Course . What's most important though is pretty much anything that you do, whether or not it gets absorbed into your long term memory is dependent on how much time and conscious engagement with the topic during the process of learning.

    I'm not an expert on SketchUp - I specialize in interior design. But I think the best way to learn anything is to get ahold of the manual and read it, or if you prefer, go onto YouTube and watch tutorials. There's also nothing wrong with using just the free basic version of Sketchup until you learn more about what functions are available as premium tools for purchase. I would advise that you try searching Google how-to videos related to interior designer sketchup visualization. This will help narrow down your video search results so that they are centered around people who've actually tackled something similar to what you're looking for.
