Google SketchUp and Kerkythea – fast start 4architects by Majid Yeganegi

I need to mention first before you start to learn Kerkythea using this tutorial that this is an easy-to-use simplified tutorial and also an architect-oriented guide. I have ignored some intricate technical material tips but have another more advanced tutorial in the pipeline to follow this one. Hopefully after studying this you will be so impressed with Kerkythea that it will encourage you to learn Kerkythea deeper. Even if you don’t use Kerkythea this tutorial will familiarize you with some of the render language used in such software and what it is…
