Topic tags/keywords: sketch-up

I’m a not-so-talented beginner at Sketch-Up. I have a long way to go to build my skills, but I have a project that can’t wait for me to catch up. I’d like to talk with someone who is very good at making Sketch-Up drawings of reproductions going by a couple of photos and basic dimensions. Basically, there is a project I’ve wanted to make for years that involves some complex angles and curves. I want a good Sketch-Up drawing so I can go in and find dimensions for pieces and find angles of orientation. I don’t have tons of money to spend, but I am open to finding out how much would be involved for this project. It doesn’t have to be a very finished drawing—just has to have all the parts and show their dimensions and angles. Please let me know if you’re interested or know someone who might be. Thanks.

One guy to chat with is, Bob Lang he sells a class on DVD for Sketchup. It is made for woodworkers, for 39 dollars that is great. I bought it and has helped me alot. He might not do the project drawling for you but he surely might know someone who would. If you do get his class it comes on DVD. I found it works alot better printing the 200ish pages in color and putting it in binder. So while doing the class on your computer you can use the book along with it. It’s easier to read then it is on the comp and my flat screen hated when I highlighted stuff on it LOL
