I think it would be nice to have a Sketchup Forum where we cant post questions, tips, tricks and techniques and maybe even Sketchup files we would like to share. GO…......

Why not just use the sketchup forum on their web site?

Cheers,

Brad, that would work but I’m talking about specifics on woodworking, design and joinery. Judging from the lack of response though I guess others don’t feel the same way. Thanks for the input!

I generally post my sketchup questions to the “Designing Woodworking Projects’ forum. My sketchup questions come in bursts, when I am beginning the design for a new project, then fade until the next one, usually a couple of months apart.

I thought it would be nice to have. I know there a lot of lj’s that want to learn.
I think a lot of people would follow along, without much participation, but they would be watching and silently learning.

I think it would be great to have a Sketchup forum. I don’t use the program but I’ve seen some awesome renderings coming out of it.

I’ve got an architect friend up in Maryland that uses the free version and he does some really nice drawings in it and has never had any complaints from his clients.

I just don’t have time to spend any time with it but I do enjoy seeing what you jocks come up with in it.

The forum administrator should be able to add the forum without any problems and help our community grow.

I’d participate. Like Charles, my Sketchup questions come in bursts and then slow down as I practice and use the new knowledge. I’ve been able to figure out how to do almost anything I can imagine. as far as woodworking projects, but would love to learn how to do those things quicker and easier.

+1 Add me too. Lately I have been wrestling with the “Follow Me” tool. UGH! It is having a hard time with my head! :-)

I just made a model of a bowl with the follow me tool. It was a triumph for me!

Count me in. I use it at the beginning of each project. I woke last night and came up with a joinery idea to simplify my current project. Tried it out in Sketchup this morning and realized it wouldn’t work. Saved a bunch of Baltic birch

I could certainly be a contributor but any questions I have would be pretty advanced. At the moment, I’m working with dynamic components. Fun and extremely useful but only for those with the pro version.
