AutoCAD Integration


This course can be completed in a day, assuming you already have your kitchen or bath designed and built in AutoCAD 3d.  


Course Summary: In this course you will to learn how to render your kitchen or bath designs that you have built in  AutoCAD 3d. I'll be showing you a project as it is modeled in the program, then all the way through to the final render. I'll show you how to best set up your file for export, then how to convert it Sketchup, and prepared the Sketchup model for the platform. Finally we'll set up the room in the platform, upload the model, adjust the materials and lighting and render.

You will need Sketchup Shop or Sketchup Pro for program integrations. Sketchup Free does not allow imports of other file types.
