So you asked for it, so here it is—- a blog about Sketchup. Now the first thing you have to know is that I’m a complete novice and so this journey we are taking will be interesting. I’m looking forward to the challenge of bringing Sketchup to life for you and me! The other thing is that until Saturday I’m not going to be able to do much. My home internet is down until then when the repair guy comes, so I’m doing a little bit from work before the work day starts and maybe a bit at lunch time. Also know that I’m pretty much typing left handed until after my surgery, so if you see a typo, please forgive me. Fortunately I type for a living and my left hand knows where all the keys are!
First things first. You can download Google Sketchup (for free) at http://sketchup.google.com There is the free program and the Pro program. Definitely get the free one!
Having a mouse with a wheel helps a lot, but the program is also easy for us laptop folks. But if you use a mouse – try getting one with a wheel. (Although I think most new computers come with a mouse wit a wheel.)
Well – I need to get to work – a girls got to make a living.
I hope this blog will be enjoyable for you. I’m sur I’ll learn alot as I’ve always said – the best way to learn somethin is to teach it to someone else.
