In the 2nd episode of the MasterSketchup podcast, I’ll be interviewing Alexander Schreyer, best selling author of the book Architectural Design with Sketchup. I had the chance to meet up with Alex at the 2012 3D Basecamp conference, and I’m honored to have him on as the first guest to the MasterSketchup podcast.

Alex is a CAD/BIM expert, and a lecturer at the University of Massachusetts. I wanted to talk with him about his new book and how Sketchup fits into the architecture and construction industry.
