I finally downloaded and started playing with Sketchup yesterday. It was time to actually draw out my ideas for the next big project. I’ve been promising my wife a new bed for years, and have had design ideas in mind for almost as long.
The free version of the program comes with a pretty informative “tutorial” in the form of startup tips. After reading that and a little practice it becomes pretty intuitive. If you haven’t explored it yet, I highly recommend it. It’s kind of fun!
I’m still having trouble with curves, and haven’t figured out an easy way to render chamfers yet. But I figure if I can’t draw them with the program, I can make them when I do this bed for real.
Now I just have to finish up my workbench and I can get started on the bed! Then comes a dresser… then nightstands… I see some more Sketchup time in my future!
