Creating 3D Floor Plans in SketchUp Part 1-The SketchUp Essentials #22



Part 1 of this 2 part series will focus on using the line and offset tools to create a floor plan in SketchUp. Part 2 will focus on modeling a floor plan from an image. ♦SUPPORT ME♦ ♦Courses♦ ♦Website♦ — ————————————————– —————————– In this week’s SketchUp tutorial, we’re going to talk about creating floor plans in SketchUp There are several different ways you can go about this, depending on if you’re creating a new floor plan, or if you have and existing floor plan image that you’re bringing into SketchUp in order to model it in 3D. Creating a floor plan from scratch in SketchUp is pretty easy – you can start off by drawing the outline of your space in 2D, then you can use rectangles to rough out your spaces. Once you have your spaces roughed out, you can go in with the offset tool and create your walls. You can do that by activating the tool, then clicking in a space, then entering the thickness you’d like to offset your space. In t his case, I’m going to assume my walls are 6” thick. Once you’ve roughed in all your walls, you can go in, do a little cleanup to make sure your walls are continuous faces, and then use push/pull to extrude your walls into 3d. The tricky part is how to include your doors. There’s a couple ways you can do this, and I’ll run through the pros/cons of each. The first is to just rough out your door openings before you extrude your walls. This has the benefit of making it so your doors are in the right place before you extrude. However, if you want actual door openings, you’ll have to come in, model the tops of the doors, and deal with SketchUp autohealing over and over again. You can also extrude your walls, then add your doors. This is a much easier way to do this, because you aren’t dealing with the healing, but you’ll have to go in and add all your door locations after the fact. This can be handled fairly easily with guides. When I did this, it seemed much easier than doing it the other way. Once you draw your doors on your walls, you can use the push/pull tool to push them until they hit the other side of the wall, where SketchUp will automatically delete the faces. Remember that if you do this once, you can double click every time afterword to repeat the tool’s last action. That’s where I’m going to end this video. In part 2, we’re going to talk about workflow if you have an image that you’d like to import and use as a floor plan. ———————————————- ——————- PLEASE LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE More SketchUp tutorials and resources at Check Us Out On-Twitter-Facebook-Pinterest-.
