Get to know Me

John Kaplar - Lead Instructor

I'm an Interior Designer and have been using SketchUp with V-Ray to WOW our clients with photorealistic images of our designs. I spent months learning SketchUp from scratch and developed a custom process focused (hence the name) on how Interior Designers can learn and use SketchUp in their design process and presentations. My courses will guide you along the way and provide you the tools and support you need to quickly learn SketchUp and start WOWing your clients!
