Product Description

SketchUp is not just used for simple, boxy 3D models… it is more than capable of producing flowing, organic topography models too….

In this short, 3-hour course, delivered online through the magic of video conferencing, we look at how to create and intuitively edit advanced ‘quad-mesh’ topography from contour lines or point-heights.

Take your landscaping to the next level in this guided online course, as we cover the basics of Toposhaper & Artisan – SketchUp extensions that are used to create more advanced topography meshes than the native Sandbox tool will allow/.
