Описание: If you’re reading this book, you know a bit about Google SketchUp and probably have used it to create some great models. You love SketchUp’s price (free, or about $500 for the Pro version) and you certainly love SketchUp’s intuitive user interface. Dig beneath SketchUp’s deceptively simple surface, however, and you can unearth techniques that enable you to create stunning models and presentations that you thought only pricey modeling applications could produce.
This book will teach you how to tap into that power. Through illustrated, step-by-step tutorials, the Google SketchUp Cookbook will show you features of SketchUp you should use (but haven’t yet), or always wanted to try, or didn’t even know existed.
This book will teach you all about groups, components, model intersection, materials and textures, presentation, animation, and styles. You will learn how to find your way around Google’s vast model repository (the 3D Warehouse), and see how SketchUp models integrate seamlessly with Google Earth. You’ll also learn about SketchUp 7’s exciting new feature: dynamic components.
By the time you complete the Google SketchUp Cookbook, you will be able to create models you never thought you could and share them with the world (if you choose).
This book is for intermediate and advanced users of SketchUp who want to go beyond the basic uses of drawing and editing tools. You should have a good working knowledge of SketchUp’s 2D drawing tools (Line, Rectangle, Circle, and so on) as well as editing tools (Move, Push/Pull, Rotate, and so on). It also doesn’t hurt if you already know how to use Intersect and Follow Me, how to create a group or component, and how to paint a face with colors or materials, although the basics of those topics are reviewed in this book. If you’ve never used texture positioning, Photo Match, scenes, layers, or styles before, don’t worry; you’ll learn all about those topics and many more in this book.
