Description: Full Circle Design FZLLC is excited to offer an intermediate 3D SketchUp course. Building on the skills learnt from SketchUp 1, this course will provide you with the skills to make an entire home and bespoke furniture from scratch. 3D warehouse is a great tool but cannot provide everything, such as bespoke built in units, and custom kitchens.

You will be making custom furniture pieces, tackling stairs, custom built-in units and making a full kitchen design. This course is particularly useful for students that want to enhance their Residential Interior Design levels 2 & 3 final project work.
