SketchUp: Beyond the Basics
In this “beyond the basics” class, you’ll not only learn to navigate and use new drawing tools, but you’ll learn new skills using these tools. We’ll show you how to save components you’ve drawn, and will likely use again in future drawings, into your own personal library. From this library file, you’ll be able to copy and paste these components into new drawings so you don’t have to “reinvent the wheel” every time you draw.
SketchUp for Woodworkers Guide – SketchUp Tutorial
Prior to SketchUp, I just made designs with pencil and paper and a couple of general computer applications that were not intended for furniture design. I felt constrained, and the limitations of the tools were negatively affecting my designs. I wanted to gain the efficiency of a “real design tool” that would allow me to work in three dimensions with a tool set that was purpose-built for detailed illustrations, so I finally made a commitment to learn SketchUp.
