Modelling a  Pergola

    The main exercise for this session is to model a Pergola in 3D. See Figure1 enclosed. You use the basic measurements visible in the figure in order to start with modelling. Basically, you will make use of the main 6 modelling functions: Pencil, Push/pull, Eraser, Orbit, Pan, Zoom. You will notice that 80% of your work time with SketchUp will be using these functions.
