Are you interesting in learning about photo-realistic rendering your Sketchup models? How rendering can help you step up your game? How to choose a render program from the dozens of available options? Even after choosing a render program, one still needs to learn to use it efficiently, which may seem daunting.
Pro SketchUp user Marcus Ritland (presenter at our most popular meetup so far), will show us what render programs can do, what the different options are, and how to choose the right one for you. Learn about how modeling for rendering is subtly different than presenting SketchUp-only models, and watch as Marcus sets up a model and renders it for you, right in the meetup.
Whether you are a pro SketchUp user wanting to take your SketchUp models to the next level, or a SketchUp newbie just learning about the options, there is something here for everyone. Bring yourself, bring your 3D modeling friends, and most of all bring your SketchUp rendering questions!
With a background in construction and education from the Milwaukee School of Engineering, Marcus Ritland has been using SketchUp professionally since 2008 for his own business, Denali 3D Design, providing modeling & rendering, product design, and SketchUp training in Minneapolis.
