Sketchup by Anthony

Sketchup is a 3D design programme which you can use on an imac, windows and netbooks. Sketchup
is a design program which you use to make 3 dimensional shapes. On this one program you can download it for free on an Imac. You can design toys, objects, or plastic clips for your lunch bag.

The people that use it are students, parents or teacher mostly anyone over the globe.  The year 7/8s from class 2 got the chance to use Sketchup for a project. My friends were creative on Sketchup. One of my friends was making a boat and the others were making cars.

People use Sketchup for buildings and ideas like cars, extensions to add onto houses, and houses. Sketchup is a programme where you can connect up to a 3D printer, but there are tools that you use to control it and see things from different angles. The tool’s on the 3D printer are special equipment which you will find at certain places.

You use shapes and combine them with other shapes and it creates a mixture between both of them. There is a special software which you can use to download objects to give you ideas of creating things you’ve never thought of before.
