I am a total beginner when it comes to SketchUp. Should I come to 3D Basecamp?

Absolutely! Our beginner classes happen during our pre-conference event: Bootcamp. With a Bootcamp or All Access ticket, you'll have access to these two days of intensive SketchUp training.

If you're unable to make it, you may transfer your registration to another person. To do this, please send an email to with your request.

Is the party included in my ticket?

With the Basecamp and All Access tickets, the party is included! If you purchase a Bootcamp ticket, you will not have access to the SketchUp party, but you will get to mix and mingle with other SketchUppers at our Trail Mixer happy hour.

Is there financial assistance available?

3D Basecamp is for everyone, and if you are experiencing financial hardship, we want to help. We have 10 scholarships to award to those in need. Please tell us about your situation through our form, and we will assess scholarship eligibility. Deadline to apply is March 1,2020

What are the differences between the tickets?

The Bootcamp ticket entitles you to two days of hands-on training. You’ll be working directly in SketchUp almost all day, and we’ll have a farewell happy hour for you to celebrate at the end.

The Basecamp ticket entitles you to three days of 3D Basecamp sessions and presentations. This ticket is less focused on industry-specific and advanced training, but you get more time to digest what you learn and socialize with your fellow Basecampers. This ticket also features the 3D Basecamp keynote, as well as our legendary 3D Basecamp party.

The All Access ticket entitles you to both Bootcamp and Basecamp. This means you will get to attend two days of hands-on training, Basecamp presentations from experts, plus our 3D Basecamp keynote and our rad 3D Basecamp party.

Bootcamp takes place on Saturday and Sunday, September 12 - 13 from 8 am - 5 pm.

Basecamp is Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, September 14 - 16 from 9 am - 5 pm.

All Access is - you guessed it! - the whole shebang: Saturday, September 12 at 9 am -  Wednesday, September 16th at 5 pm.

What is Bootcamp?

Bootcamp is the hands-on training track that runs the first two days before the conference starts. These two days are dedicated entirely to SketchUp training for all learning levels. You must purchase a two-day Bootcamp ticket — or an All Access ticket — to attend these. 

If you are looking for beginner, intermediate, or advanced SketchUp training, either ticket is a great choice, and there’s always the option to attend both! Lots of people choose to stay for the entire week. That’s why we offer the All Access ticket.

What should I bring to 3D Basecamp?

The 3D Basecamp essentials are a laptop that’s compatible with SketchUp, a charger for that laptop, and a three-button mouse (the cheaper, the better!). Also, bring whatever you need to have fun in Vancouver. Here's a handy guide to help you get packed up!

What's the ticket refund policy?

Your refund amount will depend on the date of your refund request.

  • Before July 25, 2020: 100% refund
  • July 25 to August 24, 2020: 50% refund
  • After August 24, 2020: no refunds are available
