How much time can you afford to waste?
Recently, a Residential Architect named Tom told me an all too familiar story about trying to teach himself SketchUp:
“I kept hearing good things about SketchUp. Architects like me clearly love using it, so one day I finally decided it was time to give it a try.
Going into things, my goal was to be able to design homes in SketchUp and then create construction documents with LayOut.”
Tom’s SketchUp Goal
“Everybody told me SketchUp was easy to learn, so I downloaded it, and immediately tried to model my own house.
And I was doing pretty well until I hit a snag trying to model the roof.
After struggling in SketchUp for a bit, I searched the internet for some help, and found a video tutorial.
I was able to follow the steps in the tutorial and get something close enough to what I wanted, so I moved on, and continued to model my house.
But progress got slower and slower.
The closer I got to completing the model, the more often I got stuck and had to search the internet for how to get unstuck.
Eventually though, I got to a point where my SketchUp model was pretty much done. And I thought, ‘Not too bad for my first time with SketchUp.’
BUT the first time I used it on the job, it was a very different story.
I was on a deadline, everything in the model needed to be right, and when design changes came up, I needed to be able to make them in SketchUp.
I was in way over my head.”
Tom’s emotional state
Tom’s situation is both extremely common and completely avoidable.
Alex Oliver, Founder & Lead Instructor
I’m Alex, the founder and lead instructor at SketchUp School. We have been teaching SketchUp in person and online for over a decade and I’ve personally taught SketchUp in the classroom to thousands of professionals.
Over the last 10+ years, we’ve developed and refined a large collection of classes specifically for professionals.
In our advanced classes, we meet students all the time that have taught themselves SketchUp. Those students inevitably struggle in our classes because they’re trying to build professional skills on a weak foundation.
This is one of the the most costly mistakes people make when learning SketchUp.
To avoid what happened to Tom, you need to take the right approach:
Get the right information
Learn it in the correct order
Practice with activites at the right level of difficulty
Get regular feedback for where to improve
Have access to an expert for guidance and support
So what ever happened to Tom?
After getting in over his head on his first real world project, Tom realized he needed to get serious about learning SketchUp. That’s when he found SketchUp School, and saw we had a video course in our library that sounded perfect.
As soon as he signed up, one of our instructors reached out to him, and they had a conversation about what he needed to learn and how much experience he had with SketchUp.
Tom had planned to jump straight into one of the more advanced courses, but the instructor recommended that he start by reviewing the lessons in our intro course, The Complete Intro to SketchUp.
“This is such an amazing course – I’ve finally learned the right way to build a SketchUp model that’s organized and flexible to edit. Already, I’ve saved tons of time and headaches! I look forward to even more ways to expand my SketchUp arsenal. You have a good thing going for sure.”
Instead of wasting time drowning in an advanced course, Tom filled in all the holes in his understanding of SketchUp. And, as soon as Tom got through the fundamentals, he jumped into the course that had originally caught his eye.
Now, Tom does all his projects in SketchUp (and life is good).
