If you have followed my various blogs you know that despite much effort and coaching by DaveR, Brad Nailor and others, I’m still quite a neophyte when it comes to Sketchup. When it comes down to it, all this computer/electronic stuff baffles me – but I digress.
Here’s my idea – and yes, I think I might be throwing myself under the proverbial bus here – but…. as they say, no pain no gain, no guts no glory, etc. yada yada yada.
I know there are a ton of videos on line, here, on youtube, etc. about how to do SU. But there are not any that show the steps you take to learn the darn thing. Like doing the mistake, then fixing it, then moving to the next part. I know I learn from my mistakes——what if I did a video (or series) of my trying to draw something – and post the whole process – mistakes and all. Would that help anyone else to learn the program by learning from my mistakes, missteps or would it be to confusing and awkward? I’m willing to expose myself to the silent laughter of the internet world – if it would be beneficial to anyone besides myself. I’m just thinking that all the “clean” videos make it look a lot easier than it is, and an “unclean” video may help. Call me crazy.
My thought is, pick a project, start drawing, post it, have it looked at – get pointers and try to incorporate those pointers into the next video.
What do you think. Please feel free to tell me if you think it’s a waste of time or it’s just a bad idea.
