Sketchup Architectural & Custom 3D Modeling Tutor / Services
Hi my name is
$60 / Hour
Freelance 3D modeler for advanced Sketchup & Layout. I teach architectural modeling, interiors, landscape design, product drawings, 3D prints & more.
Hi, my name is Geoff. I have been a professional designer since 1999, and a 3D modeling teacher since 2005. I’ve taught Sketchup at Front Range Community College, the University of Colorado and have taught hundreds of students online.
My interest in SketchUp started with my love for snowboarding. I started designing and building snowboard parks when I was 18. SketchUp was the perfect tool for the job. It allowed me to quickly draw the 3D ideas I had in my head. In the summers, I started teaching architects how to use the program. Compared to the complex curves of terrain parks, the straight lines in architecture were easy. Over the years I made thousands of models and have expanded my skills to include product design, 3D print modeling, construction documents, Layout, piping models, topographic models, and various other projects.
SketchUp has helped me realize my love for design, modeling, and teaching. I’d like share my love for the program with you, complete your drawings, and help you meet your deadlines. No matter where you live, what age, or what ability level, I can help you realize your dreams in 3D!

Conceptual Architectural 3D Sketchup Models
Initial volume studies and architectural spacial planning can be a great decision making and communication tool between architects, builders, interior designers, and homeowners. These models can be a great start for construction documentation and detail drawings later in the process. 3D models are great for wrapping your head around complex roof design modeling and complicated architectural spaces. Design and build at the same time in a way that your clients can understand. Sketchup is your answer for 3D!
3D Models for Construction and Manufacturing
Many architectural design-build firms model their structures down to the last bolt. This is great for evaluating and presenting the design before its built. It can save money on costly changes down the road. It also is helpful in ordering materials, creating cut-lists, and understanding complex shapes. I have used Sketchup to help clients build architectural framing, steel framing, complex rooflines, rapid prototyping, manufacturing and product designs of all sizes. Whether you need help with construction documentation, or just finding a simple square footage measurement, I can help.
3D Landscape & Terrain Modeling from 2D Contour Lines
With Sketchup you can use 2d contour lines to create 3D models that are easily understood by clients and investors. I have created models for housing developments, excavations, geofoam projects, ski/snowboard terrain parks and many other applications
Modeling for 3D Printing
Creating a model for 3D printing can be harder than it seems. I can teach you to use Sketchup to create models that are printable. Go from hand drawing, to a 3D model to a 3D print in a couple of days- or a couple of hours if you have your own 3D printer. I have created 3D topography models, patent prototypes, and even my wife’s engagement ring!
Custom 3D Furniture Modeling
Plan, design and model your custom furniture. 3D furniture modeling allows you to get your clients to sign off on your design before you start building. You can create and modify your models easily. You can scale and dimension your models to be used for as construction aids. You can also use a CNC machine or other digital manufacturing techniques to create your furniture directly from your model.
Custom 3D Models for any Industry
Convert your custom 2D plans to complex 3D models that everyone can understand. I can teach you to use Sketchup for plumbing and piping models, sprinter van conversions, gym equipment modeling, complex staircases, event planning, prototyping, artistic creations, woodwork and more. The possibilities are endless!
Learn to make custom interior design models with your own private Sketchup tutor online. Start from scratch or change your 2D floorplan pdf or AutoCAD file into a 3D model. Bring your interior spaces to life with colors, textures, lighting and basic rendering. Choose from thousands of furniture models in the 3D warehouse and design tools from the extension warehouse. Sketchup works for kitchen/bath design, cabinet design, landscape design, exteriors and custom spaces too.
