SketchUp Crime Scenes: Dynamic Evidence Markers and PointCloud Workflow

recorded 23-September-2021

Joshua Cohen & Joel Newman at Fat Pencil Studio will explain the benefits of using 3d visualization in crime scene investigations, and share some details about their workflow for creating these 3d models in SketchUp using photos and/or point cloud data. The 1 hour webinar will include a discussion of options for getting point cloud data into SketchUp, and a brief training on how to import and use evidence marker components. These were developed by Fat Pencil, and are available for free on the SketchUp 3d Warehouse. Attendees that have a license or a free trial of SketchUp Pro (desktop version) can follow the training on their own computers and ask questions as we go. Details regarding the software will be sent out a few days before the webinar. It's also fine to attend without having the software, and treat the training as a demo.
