About me: Larry Zent

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, I am been in the drafting and design industry for over 28 years using AutoCAD, SketchUp and various 3D software programs. These areas have included, Architectural, Mechanical, Interior Design and Engineering fields. I am also an experienced faculty member with over 10 years teaching SketchUP Basic and Pro level courses in college classrooms. Both SketchUp basic and advanced classes that I taught, were very successful, students and two colleges alike enjoyed and benefited from them.


      My students would always ask me, if  I had anything else to offer them that would help them to get into industry, and so as I have always wanted to start my own business, one that could help others to get into industry with quality and relevant skills, I have created this training company.

      I put on both a Basic and Advanced SketchUp workshops for individuals who would like to start using SketchUp or even expand their careers and skills. SketchUp in my professional opinion has become an industry leader over the past several years, and it has a very low learning curve compared to other 3D modeling software programs. I believe that these workshops will also excite you and enhance your skills that will allow you to "see your dreams". The content materials I provide are in an easy to follow PDF format that you can take with you to practice with afterwards. These will take you to your next Professional level. I also just completed SketchUp training classes at the last SketchUp Basecamp in Palm Springs Ca. in September 2018.


I really look forward to seeing you in our workshops or individual training soon, Thank you and have a great day!

Latest testimonials and what our clients think.

- Nick Sonder

“Larry’s in depth knowledge and approach to teaching Sketchup are so exceptional, that he became an obvious choice to assist in reviewing the release of my book co-authored with Matt Donley in 2016.  Larry has an incredibly poised demeanor making him an exceptional resource for anyone pursuing more knowledge in Sketchup and Layout”

Working for Colorado State University’s Remodel and Construction Services, I work on projects ranging from classroom, office and Laboratory remodels to building additions. I use many programs while working on these projects, from AutoCAD and Revit to SketchUp and Photoshop. SketchUp is now being used on almost all of the projects I work on at some level. Being able to show multiple conceptual layouts of the building remodels quickly in SketchUp saves our department time and money than using some of the other standard CAD programs to do the same thing. With the ability to quickly create 3D views and renderings helps the clients we work with at the University visualize the work being done in their area and we are able to come up with final designs faster than before.Taking Larry Zent’s SketchUp and Advanced SketchUp classes have greatly improved my ability to use the program. These classes are well taught and structured for someone who has never used the program to someone who has used the program for years and wants to learn some new skills. I would recommend these classes and Larry as a teacher to anyone interested in learning SketchUp.
