Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 4, 2009
3DVinci (formerly F1 Books), the premiere producers of books, tutorials, and educational materials that enable anyone to design, create and model in 3D, today announced the release of its Basic and Advanced books on Google SketchUp Version 7. Author Bonnie Roskes' widely-acclaimed tutorials are used by thousands of architects, designers, contractors, product developers, engineers, and hobbyists in over 50 countries.
Ms. Roskes' project-based books, recognized for their step-by-step, fully-illustrated tutorial format and usability, are designed to familiarize novices and experts alike with every aspect of SketchUp: basic tools, usage of components and groups, sectioning, presentation, and more. New users can get started with SketchUp using the Basic books in under 15 minutes, while SketchUp veterans will learn advanced techniques for all tools, ways to create impressive presentations and animations, and get introduced to dynamic components. With the project-based approach, professionals and hobbyists can focus on creating and designing, rather than on learning the software.
"Ms. Roskes' writing style makes it very easy to learn how to use the software," said Antonio Munoz-Mingarro, professional architect. Mr. Munoz-Mingarro trained at the Higher Technical School of Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain). "I have purchased Ms. Roskes' books on Google SketchUp and Piranesi. The books are easy to read, very illustrative, and help new users get started almost immediately."
"The SketchUp books by Bonnie Roskes are fantastic," said Boris Bosnjak, woodworker and software engineer. "The concise instructions, the diagrams, the pace, and the relevant examples make learning Google SketchUp fast and easy."
"3DVinci's books on Google SketchUp are incredibly easy to follow," added Kolby Kirk, graphic designer. "I use SketchUp for laying out 3D environments for web and print work. Ms. Roskes' books helped me learn to use the software, and I use the books regularly."
Google SketchUp, available in both free and Pro versions, is recognized worldwide as a powerful 3D design and modeling application. SketchUp's versatility is unmatched, enabling users to redecorate interior spaces, design a building or a new piece of furniture, model neighborhoods and cities for Google Earth, and share their designs with others.
3DVinci's books on Google SketchUp 7 are available in full color, black and white, and pdf format, starting from $32.95. For information on the version 7 books: http://www.3dvinci.net/ccp0-catshow/SU.html.
