Rajib Dey : Editor-in-chief

Participate with an exclusive course on Trimble sketchup alias Trimble SketchUp for Digital Fabrication and Prototyping. By undergoing this sketchup course, one can transform their 2d sketches into real time 3d presentation. One can learn how to produce 3D drawings to be utilized together with digital fabrication. Besides, one can learn how to apply sketchup for producing model in 3D that can be used with a 3D printer.

The course will commence from Monday 24th November and continue for four week (four consecutive Mondays) focusing on the fundamentals of sketchup with the basic layout, menus and tools panels, to handy plugins and corporeal applications. This course will run over a four week period portraying the potential that lies within the friendly and forgiving interface of this 3d modeling software.
