I just released part 8, the final installment of this series. So if you have been following along you now have another video to watch. Go to to view it.

In Part 8 I conclude this series by covering material that has been particularly troubling. I get a lot of email from people who are following along but get stuck in a place that is frustrating and confusing. That is normal and part of the learning process. I tried to keep track of which areas were the culprits and this tutorial is intended to shed additional light on them. Be sure to read all the introduction for instructions on how to download the files you will need.

This concludes the Beginner’s SketchUp Tutorial series. In the not too distant future I will begin An Intermediate Google SketchUp Tutorial – The Video Version series. It will deal with complex shapes and complex curves. The series will parallel An Intermediate Google SketchUp Tutorial written version already available on my Google SketchUp page. So if you can’t wait for the video series you can start there. Until then bye for now.

Thanks for the series, Joe. I have been plodding through them and, while I have used Sketchup for some time, they were really helpful (I still have to go through 7).

I would also add a voluminous thank-you for the series Joe, have putzed around with Sketchup for a while but your series really took me to a point where I can create real, usable drawings

Thanks !

Thanks TMcG,

I vacationed in your homeland this time last year. Spent New Years Eve in Tasmania and traveled throughout the mainland. What a great country and really nice people. If I were young and just starting a family I think I would relocate to Australia.

Good luck with SketchUp and glad to help.
