This book is designed for the interior designer wanting to use hand sketching techniques, Google SketchUp, and Adobe Photoshop together to create beautiful designs and presentations. This book will teach you how to come up with fresh new design ideas and how to save time by using these powerful tools and techniques. This book presumes no previous experience with any of these tools and is divided into three sections. In the first section you will learn to use SketchUp and Photoshop starting with navigating the interface and than learning their features. In the next section you will learn hand sketching techniques and how to combine these with digital tools. In the last section of the book you will complete an interior design project leveraging the tools and techniques you learned in previous chapters while learning a few new techniques along the way. The first two chapters cover computer basics, including managing files and knowing your way around the operating system. The next three chapters introduce the reader to SketchUp, an easy to use 3D modeling program geared specifically towards architecture. Chapters six and seven present the basic tools found in Photoshop, which is the industry standard raster image editing software. Once you have worked through all the technology related introduction chapters, you will explore four chapters on various aspects of hand sketching. These chapters mainly focus on interior drawing concepts. The final four chapters work through the concept design process for an interior fit out project. The intent is that the reader would recreate these drawings as they appear in the book. The goal is to focus on understanding the process and developing the required techniques rather than getting bogged down in design right away.

Trimble SketchUp (formerly Google SketchUp) is an all-purpose 3D modeling tool. The program is primarily developed around architectural design, but it can be used to model just about anything. It is an easy way to quickly communicate your design ideas to clients or prospective employers. Not only can you create great still images, SketchUp also is able to produce walkthrough videos. The tutorials will introduce you to using SketchUp to create 3D models for interior design. Several pieces of furniture are modeled. The process is broken down into the fundamental concepts of 2D line work, 3D extraction, applying materials and printing. For a little inspiration, this book has several real-world SketchUp project images throughout. Also, a real-world project is provided to explore and it is employed in the book to develop a walkthrough animation. Rather than covering any one feature or workflow in excruciating detail, this book aims to highlight many topics typically encountered in practice. Many of the tutorials build upon each other so you have a better understanding of how everything works, and you finish with a greater sense of confidence. In addition to “pure” SketchUp tutorials, which comprises most of the text, you will also enjoy these “extended” topics: Introduction to LayOut; an application which comes with SketchUp Pro Manufacturer specific paint colors and wallcoverings Manufacturer specific furniture Manufacture specific flooring Photorealistic rendering using V-Ray for SketchUp Working with AutoCAD DWG files Working with Revit; including how to bring SketchUp models into Revit This book has been written with the assumption that you have no prior experience using Trimble SketchUp. With this book, you will be able to describe and apply many of the fundamental principles needed to develop compelling SketchUp models. Although the book is primarily written with a classroom setting in mind, most individuals will be able to work through it on their own and benefit from the tips and tricks presented.
