I just released part 6 of this series. So if you have been following along you now have another video to watch. Go to to view it.

Part 6 covers scene creation, dimensioning and labeling. Basically, everything you need to know to create shop drawings. It also shows you how to download and install a Ruby script that makes layers management much easier.

Part 7 will be out next week and will cover texturing that enables near photorealistic renderings.

The last installment, Part 8, will be a smorgasbord of things. Mostly details not covered in the series so far. It will demonstrate alternative ways of doing some things done in the tutorials, but for which I didn’t have time in the constraints of a 40 plus or minus minutes video. It will also explain some key tools in much more detail. If you have a suggestion for this part let me know.

Happy Holidays.

Thanks Joe. I’ve watched up to part three and hopefully get caught up this weekend. Your tutorials are well explained and quite easy to follow. I may actually know what I’m doing with SU after your video series. And I know…practice, practice.
Thanks again for taking the time to do these excellent videos.
and have Very Merry Christmas!!!

Hi Gary,

Glad you are making good use of them. And yes – practice, practice, practice! But if you download these tutorials you will always have them to review.

Merry Christmas to you too.
