“This class was a very good introduction to Google SketchUp in general and starts you designing things specifically for 3D printing. Marcus is clearly a CAD professional, and has trustworthy experience in 3D printing. He is also a patient and attentive instructor. The Mill is an inspirational place to take the class, because you are surrounded by people and machines that are making things.”
“I was so thrilled to have Marcus’ help with my Shapeways project. He was fast with communication (much more than myself!), did a detailed job on the model and produced a good, finished result in a short period of time. Very friendly, very easy to work with, efficient, and very skilled. I’d recommend him for any 3D modeling project you have, he’s demonstrated his worth!”
Jeff was a student of my “Sketchup for Woodworking” Class.
“I found Marcus to be a great teacher: professional, prepared, and very adaptable in terms of where we focused our time. As a complete beginner with Sketchup, Marcus was able to clearly and efficiently get me up to speed on the basic concepts and techniques. I probably could have gotten there myself using online tutorials, but working with Marcus was definitely faster, more fun, and definitely worth the tuition.
Beyond the basics, Marcus presented several drawings for complex projects that gave me a great sense of the advanced capabilities and drawing techniques of Sketchup. Marcus also has a great sense of real world building, 3D printing, and manufacturing techniques. He directly translates that knowledge into into tips and techniques for making Sketchup drawings that are truly useful in building real projects.
In addition, The Mill was a great venue for the class. Using the The Mill workspace to do a complete build on our Sketchup design really brought it all together It was great to finish the class not only with new knowledge in my head, but also a tangible wood box in my hands! “
“Marcus introduced me to 3D printing and guided me through the process of modeling my own designs for 3D printing. He’s a go-to resource for all things SketchUp. I’ve not only been greatly impressed with his ability to model amazing things and his rendering skills, but he’s also great at conveying that knowledge to others. I know of no one more knowledgeable.”
