SketchUp & Twilight

FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS: A WORKBOOK

This book was created as a companion workbook for Kimberly-Ann Debling’s online course of the same title. The book functions as a standalone workbook without the course, but if you’d like to take a look at the course please visit: SketchUp & Twilight for Interior Designers on Udemy.

Turn on and off specific parts of your models, whether it be Architectural details such as ‘furniture’ or conceptual details such as ‘existing architecture

Add specialist materials such as reflecting mirrors, textured surfaces with a bump map and surfaces which emit light

Use Twilight Render with confidence to produce photorealistic renders

Whats inside?

Many beginner users of SketchUp don’t realise how easy it is to view your model in 2d whether from above (plan), from a side (elevation), or with a cut-away (section).

Some model parts won’t look right even when we do set up a 2d view, but the book (and course) shows you how to make your model work in 2d and 3d without duplicating objects, models or files.

Using Twilight Render with SketchUp opens up wonderful new realistic modelling which includes reflective surfaces, lighting and realistic materials.
