3D Construction Modeling is a user friendly book that walks you through the construction process for a small house. It is not only practical but the only guide that shows you step-by-step how to build a construction model using SketchUp 4.0. The book and CD-ROM feature a trial version of the modeling software, video tutorials and real-world construction details in ten easy graphic lessons. This unique narrative is designed to introduce novices to key features of construction modeling as well as inform advanced users of the advantages of preconstruction visualization. 3D Construction Modeling uses an innovative, simple comic format to bring busy professionals and students up to speed and enhance productivity in a very short period of time.

This is a classic book that is now in its 13th printing. The book includes a trial version of the older SketchUp V4 which is a much simpler and basic program than the current version of Google SketchUp - and possibly the last good program from @Last Software. It's closely related to V5 except V4 has black and white icons and V5 has color (and new icon shapes) and the Outliner. The Google SketchUp V6 adds a bunch more stuff like Layout, performances, sketchy edges, warehouse, photo match, etc. All design features that are not necessary for construction models (if that's your interest...). As an introduction to construction modeling we recommend using the trial version of the SketchUp software included with the book until the 8 hour trial period runs out and then switching to the later version of Google SketchUp. The book, therefore, covers the basics of building a piece-based construction model (a BIM) using the tools that you find in all three versions and does not go beyond what is necessary to plan, layout, and build a virtual building.About the Author:
