This two day workshop is designed for beginners with little or no previous experience of 3D modelling. You will learn the basics of drawing and 3D modelling in SketchUp and use it to create a 3D environment which we will then make interactive using the Unity3D game engine.
SketchUp is a simple to learn 3D modelling software that makes it easy to draw digital 3D objects and spaces. The programme is used for a wide range of 3D modelling applications including architectural design, woodworking, product design, game design, exhibition design and 3D printing. We will use SketchUp Free, which is the no cost version of SketchUp that runs online in a web browser.
In addition to SketchUp, you will also be introduced to the Unity3D game engine, which allows you to import and interact with 3D content in real-time. The Unity game engine has an intuitive workflow and allows you to create interactive environments that you can ‘walk’ around. The Unity Game engine is also free for personal and learning use.
