« Part 8: Putting in the legs and zooming and panning Part 9 of Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride series Part 10: Rotating ---- not sure I've got this right but here goes »

I’m nearing the end of my basic table blog and will be starting another project that will be more complex. Such things as groups, components, etc.

Since I’m not allowed in the shop right now, I’m not going to tempt myself by designing a new progect. So what I’ve decided to do is to use SU to make a drawing of a project I’ve already done. It’s the hall table that I have posted.

I’ll be finishing up the table tonight and moving on to the hall table. I’m sure I’ll need lots of pointers and tips on this new project – so feel free to help me learn SU!

Stay tuned!

I recommend trying out components for this project. They will simplify your life in SU.

Thanks John. I will try them. I appreciate the input. As I move along please tell me what I can do to improve my SU projects. I’m purposely going slowly and methodically so that what I learn sticks!

Thanks again.

Should this be equated to a Sketchup Soap Opera?

no soap opera – just slow moving reality blogging. :-)
