Manish Sketchup guru courses

Hi there! I’m Manish Paul Simon – a Bangalore-based Architect, 3D Artist, author, and Travel Freak.

After graduating from one of India’s top architecture schools, the School of Planning & Architecture, Vijayawada, I went on to work with eminent architects throughout Southeast Asia for over 5+ years. I played many roles during this process, right from being an Architect to a 3D Artist, Interior Designer and very recently as a BIM Consultant for a large MNC.

Since 2019, I’ve been teaching courses on SketchUp and V-ray rendering for Architects and 3D graphic designers of all skill levels. You can find my step-by-step courses on several high-rated educational platforms like Gumroad, Udemy and SkillShare.

With over 5 years of experience in the world of architecture, interior and exterior designing and 3d modelling, I have achieved a great deal of professional know-how and skills. In addition to my work as a consultant and designer, which granted me the status of Autodesk Certified Professional, I have been involved in teaching for over 3 years.

My goal as an instructor is to create comprehensive step-by-step courses that break down not only the software that we Architects use but also the thought process and the guidelines that we follow when we approach design. The approach in creating my courses is based on extensive research and personal experience which allowed me to build the kind of course material that I would have loved to have when I was starting out.

By using the step-by-step approach and giving detailed information on the work process and the thoughts and reasoning behind it, my courses can be viewed as one of the most detailed, accessible and promising in the industry for beginners and professionals alike.

I’m passionate about teaching and would love to help in bringing out the “designer” within you. See you in a course soon!

The latest from my blog

In the SketchUp Guru Blog, you will find a great deal of visual and video graphic articles that explain in detail specific parts of the design process to help you in your work. All articles will cover the specific steps you need to follow in the selected topic of your choice. Every article also includes a list of needed materials and resources required to complete the task. I have put great effort into providing as many details as possible and added some amazing discounts for programs and resources so you can enjoy the design process at the lowest cost possible! 

What my students say

With more than 3000 students who enjoyed my courses world wide, it’s hard to list all of the reviews and comments. I have sellected a few from the past half year and want to express my gratitude to all my students for leaving me with such heartwarming and insightfull remarks after completing the lesson package. It’s really nice to get so many great reviews and i can honestly say it drives me to continue creating educational content for future Sketchup & V-ray artists and interior or exterior design architects.
