In week 8 I went through my auto-cad file again with Suzanna I received some great feedback and some small tweaks that I needed to make such as adding in the windows correctly in autocad and creating the tiles on the floor.
I also conducted some further exploration within sketchup experimenting with a range of features such as pull and push tool, move tool, offset tool and rotate tool. I kept on watching youtube tutorials, I found these to be very practical as they were short and straight to the point and as each video is only a couple minutes long I was able to watch loads of these instructional clips which I felt was very helpful as not all the information about sketchup is able to be discussed in the lecture each week.
It’s not my favourite piece of software to use but I do think that it is appropriate for the task given. I like the ease of viewing your work from different perspectives as well as grouping, moving and rotating your work. The array of tools is great and makes it effortless to construct the Barcelona pavilion. I feel that you learn the most about the software by just being hands on with it as well as exploring and playing around with sketchup.
