Set Design - SketchUp and Layout
Kenneth A. Larson

Main Page
I started using AutoCAD for Set Design in 1992, both for 2D and 3D applications, long before most other Set Designers. Unfortunately when the rest of the Art Department discovered CAD and Computer Modeling, it was with VectorWorks and SketchUp. With a head start of a well imbedded comfort with CAD and computer modeling, I learned SketchUp quickly.

Stage 21A
The space was tight and we had a two-story set, so I made this SketchUp model of Stage 21A (the basement stage at CBS Radford). The schedule got cut and we didn't make a model of the set. Sketchup Pro 8.0, 2012, Friday Night Dinner (Pilot).
