SketchUp: An Introduction to 3D Modelling

RTPI Scotland Young Planners Network Event

Monday, 08 May 2017 at 5:45PM - 7:30PM
Tower Building, University of Dundee, Perth Road, Dundee DD1 4HN, UK
RTPI Scotland

3D visualisation is identified by the Scottish Government in its current review of the planning system as one of the ways in which technology could transform the way people become involved with, appreciate and get excited about the future of their places.

This workshop will give young planners the opportunity to learn the basics of SketchUp, a 3D visualisation software package, which is a simple tool used by planners, architects, and designers to test and present ideas. SketchUp is an easy and fun to use piece of software, which may be used for evaluating the impact of proposals, preparing masterplans, or as a tool for public consultation.


The session will introduce SketchUp to those who haven’t had the chance to use it before, and start from the very basics. It will give participants a chance to develop an IT skill that can easily put into practice in the workplace. The workshop will be run by Dundee University graduate Hajnalka Biro, John Gray from Dundee City Council, and a number of students who have recently completed extensive training in SketchUp.


Places are free but limited and so MUST be booked - please email by 4th May.


This is a small group session so please let us know in advance if you are not able to make it on the day.
