Structural Engineering with SketchUp – Nicholas Sonder, David Zachary | 3D Basecamp 2018

Can SketchUp be used for structural engineering? In this presentation, we’ll see how David Zachary -- a licensed engineer who uses SketchUp almost exclusively -- collaborates with architects and builders on high-end residential projects. David will overview SketchUp workflows specific to structural engineering that produce highly coordinated, exceedingly accurate, and eye-catching plans that create a complete set of construction documents. This presentation will give an overview of using SketchUp for everything from drafting to detailing, and everything in between including how to improve communication and feedback over long distances. With projects across eight states and three time zones, see how Zachary Engineering is coordinating with architects and builders to ensure plans and projects stay up-to-date and on time.
