What do you need to know prior to taking the class? Only one thing – where the Woodsmith Store is!

  • What to bring to class?
  • A laptop that you have already downloaded SketchUp 14 (or higher) prior to the class.
  • Be sure to test SketchUp to be sure you have it correctly loaded and test that it works.
  • A mouse – corded or wireless. (Very important!)
