Finally, I posted the first installment in my new tutorial series: An Intermediate SketchUp Tutorial–Part 1 The Video Version at http://www.srww.com/blog/?p=1435 .
This part starts with the basic Circle tool, but demonstrates some techniques and tricky behavior that needs to be handled in more complex pieces. Each installment will get increasingly more complex. When you are done with this series (probably six parts, maybe more) you should be able to model any curved part you wish to build in the shop. So get started.

p.s. I am going on vacation to St.Croix for a week, starting next week, so expect Part 2 in about 2 weeks. In the meantime, enjoy the snow and ice! I’ll be enjoying the beach and Rum drinks.

Whoa! You mean they have a rum factor you can visit? Can you sample the drinks? They’re in trouble. I’m on my way!

Yup … the Cruzan Rum Factory is on St. Croix and has guided tours that are “topped off with a complimentary mixed drink”.

I had to take several tours so I could see everything there was to see!

Joe – your tutorials are fantastic. I recently finished the beginner series and I have to say I learned (and retained) more about Sketchup than I had previously after watching countless other tutorials. So thank you. :)

Thanks for the site address. I will log on this evening for my first lesson in sketch-up. My daughters company of engineers will use sketch up for quick drawings and illustrations a lot.

live4ever,

You are welcome. I am glad you found them effective and useful. I hope you find the intermediate series useful too. It starts slow but gets into some really good material soon. Be patient.

Brinkman,

You are welcome. Does your daughter need an old, cantankerous SketchUp teacher? ;<)
