Summary and Tasks Reminder


Summary and Tasks Reminder

You have gone through a hands-on modeling process in this lesson using SketchUp. While there is still a learning curve and every powerful tool requires practice, SketchUp has many, many features that make modeling easier. From its incredible warehouses to its geo-location features, it offers modelers inside and outside the geospatial sciences a lot of options for exploring the third dimension. For many applications, it is important to have a tool like SketchUp as it may be the only option to create a 3D model. It is also a good learning experience to come to appreciate the effort that has gone into designing software such as City Engine, which uses an entirely different approach as we will explore in the next lesson.

Reminder - Complete all of the Lesson 3 tasks!
