SketchUp – Part 2
The Online Presentation
Once a 3D house design is completed, it is presented to the client. This can be accomplished by providing paper copies, but an online presentation offers many more features.
You will export four 2D graphical views of your house and one video tour. Two of the 2D graphical views should be from a “bird's eye” view while the remaining two will be of your choice. The video tour will show a rotating view at “bird's eye” level, then move down through the front door, and tour at least 3 rooms, one of which will be the kitchen. The 5 resulting files will be uploaded to our server.
You will also complete a document that provides detailed information about the house.
