SketchUp for 3D House Modeling

Modeling a 3D house in SketchUp will be presented to students. As each modeling program has its unique interface, 3D modeling is a talent that requires continuous learning. With SketchUp, you can create 3D models, architectural renderings, and more.

Building a house for students can be used for game assets, renovations, physical building designs, and much more. Despite being a 3D building application, SketchUp has many uses.


There are two types of activity. There are: Non Computer Activity, Computer Activity.

Non Computer Activity

1. Let’s first draw a house using pencil and paper before we work on the computer. When we design on a computer, we will use this as a guide. Using a reference when building a 3D model is very helpful for keeping things in perspective.

2. We use it to model what we are going to do. We will use it as our blueprint for what should be in the final product, though the image is flat and two-dimensional with few details.

3. You do not have to make your model look exactly like your drawing, but having a guide makes it easier to remember what to create, and helps you stay on track.

Computer Activity

Student will create 3D model with their 2D diagrams.

1. First, Students will explore the interface of SketchUp. A blank world and a menu window are available. Stacy appears in the world. Erase Stacy by clicking the right mouse button. Users often keep Stacy in their models to show how big their model looks next to a human. When you click on Instructor in the Window menu, a helpful window appears.

It provides information about the tool that you are using, in addition to animation. SketchUp beginners might find this helpful. Scaling your model is easy with SketchUp, and SketchUp can measure dimensions on your behalf. A traditional Files and Help toolbars appear in the upper left corner.

2. Students will most likely use the default toolbar, Getting Started. Several editors and builders can be found in the Default Tray on the right-hand side. The Material dropdown will be the only option for this module. As well as the X-axis, Blue, Red, and Green axis represent the Y-axis, X-axis, and Z-axis. Use the circled arrows on your toolbar and the hand tool to move around. If you don’t see the circles, click on the circled arrows on your toolbar and use the hand tool.
