Subhra Bera: Editor

Trimble’s Visiting Professionals Program held every single year; this program shows the way of changing the sectors through the software and other industries.

Trimble Inc. is a Sunnyvale, California based developer of GNSS or Global Navigation Satellite System receivers, laser rangefinders, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), inertial navigation systems and software processing tools. This company was established in November 1978 by Charles Trimble and his two other partners from Hewlett Packard, initially operating from Los Altos, California.

The company’s procurements include Pocket Mobile AB, @Road, Cenega Solutions Inc. Datacom Software Research, Spectra Precision Group, Tripod Data Systems, Advanced Public Safety Inc., ALK Technologies, Apache Technologies, Acutest Engineering Solutions Ltd, Applanix, Géo-3D, INPHO, Gatewing, Gehru Technologies, Meridian Systems, NTech Industries, Pacific Crest, Quantm, Accubid Systems, SketchUp, QuichpPen International, SECO Mfg. Co., Inc., Visual Statement, Stabiplan, XYZ Solutions, Inc., Tekla, ThingMagic, Spime Inc., Punch Telematix NV, TMW Sysytems and TopoSys Gmbh.

About SketchUp: SketchUp or Google SketchUp is owned by Trimble Inc., a mapping, surveying and navigation company. It is mainly a 3D modeling computer program that is used for a broad range of drawing applications used by architects, interior designer, landscape architects, civil and mechanical engineers, film and video game designers also. It SketchUp can be getting as a freeware version named SketchUp Make and a paid version with many more extra benefits called SketchUp Pro. SketchUp is software from Trimble Company and there is an online library of free model congregations and 3D Warehouse to which users can add other models; besides that, the program has drawing layout functionality with variable ‘styles’, supports third-party ‘plug-in’ programs hosted on the Extension Warehouse to supply other abilities and enables placement of its models in Google Earth. As SketchUp users are most of architects, designers, builders, makers and engineers etc.

who works hard to give a nice shape to our physical world, they need great tools to do the work. SketchUp is in mission to bring their best to produce some great tools for drawing as drawing is the key thing of the SketchUp users. They draw to search ideas, to identify the things and to show other people their work that they do with love and love to build; SketchUp understands it truly and trying to improve their software day by day. SketchUp is a worth useful software for its ease of use, it can be downloaded or installed o computer and right after that user can work on it. Though SketchUp can easily handle but still there are some sides where people will find some difficulties and lots of solve also are there like YouTube tutorials upon SketchUp or visiting SketchUp website or search Google etc. But people will get confused to have lots of information from different places upon one thing so there should a proper place or website where all the answers can be found.

Trimble’s Visiting Professionals Program or VPP fetches design and construction industry leaders together who are suing SketchUp and other Trimble solutions in the university classrooms to learn and discover the impact of technology on their craft, the way the solutions allow them to work faster, smarter and with fewer boundaries. With every single visit, industry experts discuss with students through workshops, lectures, tech demos and live training; they also share their experience, skillsets and understandings to inspire the future generation of design and engineering professionals.

Both the students and faculty mostly found the speeches and tutorials on technology in landscape architecture fully informative and critically important. Not only designers and construction professionals, there are huge people from various professions like from architects to Hollywood set designers, historians to engineers come from a variety of industries bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon. The VPP offers them an inner view about current trends which are affecting trades and allow students to survey the skill sets that employers are looking for.

In the last year, VPP professionals visited a huge range of universities, presenting a wide range of departments like Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Construction Management, Industrial Design, Building Science and Stage/Set design. Students were shown some continuous work of trends like VR and laser scanning are changing the way of visualizing, also how software like SketchUp and Tekla are changing the building environment.
