In this quick tutorial I will show you how to use cutout graphics or entourage like trees, persons etc. in ARCHICAD. These ready-to-use graphics without background often times are used in the post processing phase for architecture visualization. Here we want to use them in the 3D environment directly.

This should be a quick beginners-introduction of Sketchup for architects. I want to show you quickly how to make a 3D CAD model of a building using probably the easiest-to-learn software in the field of building architecture: SketchUp. This software can be downloaded for free from sketchup.com.
For now you are not supposed to have much previous experience in this software, all you need to do is go through this step-by-step guide and follow the instructions and of course a little practice afterwards. You will not need to read tons of boring theories preliminarily, instead you will study while drawing a real house. [Read more…] about How To Create a 3D Building Model in SketchUp
