Sketchup, the free CAD tool from Google, was made aware to me by FWW magazine in an article a few weeks back.
I was looking for a way to better plan my projects, and SU (SketchUp) seemed to be the ticket, so I downloaded my free copy.
I had a terrible time making heads or tails of it – and I am a bit of a computer geek. Making things as I wanted them was not easy – if possible. I was frustrated.
But, realizing that this really would help me design and produce better product, I kept at, picking up a “for dummies” book on SU and watching some things on YouTube.
Well, I got better and better, and am happy to report SU is really becoming an integral part of my wood working hobby.
If you’ve tried SU, and given up on it – don’t. Get a book like I did, or watch the YouTube videos; but keep at it!
-- Have a blessed day!
