The ideal place for beginners to get help using SketchUp

Hello,

I've been using Sketchup for about a year, most of the model's I make are for Second Life but it is just a hobby for me!

I have had the disappointment of dealing with a small group of vigilantes in the wharehouse who are cyber bullying people but other than that I have enjoyed using sketchup!

I look forward to learning new things here and will be around to help others who I may be able to.

Hi, Steve and welcome:
You will find the folks here very helpful and respectful. Those are two of many unique qualities of this forum.
I wonder what the issue is in the Warehouse?

Hi Jeremie/ poachiche, and welcome:
As you may know, there is also a Woodworking subforum here, that you can access.
Personally, I would not completely abandon the pencil. I am always sketching on paper some ideas to model in Sketchup. I imagine that many others also do this.
Have a good time in this community.

Hello from Texas, everyone!

I'm a total newby to SU, having just downloaded the free version this week. I found SketchUcation at the same time I found SU in Google searches while seeking software to use for home/room/landscape design. I have no background in drafting/design, but sure want to learn!

I'm a homeowner looking to learn to use SU to model my current home in order to try on various remodeling ideas, as we are looking to update/renovate the house and landscape. My hope is to learn SU to the point that I can also design our next home.

Nice to find this forum and all of you with such skills! :fecstatic: :fecstatic:

Hi Lyza and welcome!

Here, it is really up to you how much you learn. I suggest to go through the manual and some video tutorials but whenever you are stuck, do not be shy to ask.

Hello!

I'm Curtis and I use Sketchup for a while. (Maybe 5-6 years)

Now I have VRAY and it's so realistic!
But this forum will certainly help me ^^ Sometimes I have difficulties even when I saw all the good answers.

I have referenced your site off and on for several years and found the discussions regarding plugin usage and availability very useful.

Hi,

Joined a few days ago with a view towards gaining greater proficiency in SU and Layout. I have used SU for about six months now, initially as a quick comparison between it and other 3D drawing platforms like Revit/Archicad and subsequently decided to stick with SU. I just started using Layout on a friends computer and like the interface.

I also noticed that SU Pro is available at a discount from Sketchucation (for Premium Members) and would like to purchase the Pro (Mac)version - However my emails to Sketchucation to purchase a copy have thus far gone unanswered. Any help in this regard would be appreciated.

I am recently retired and am in the process of designing a retirement home using SU, hence the request for help in purchasing a copy of SU Pro.

Thanks.

Hi Guys!
They call me Furky and I'm from Holland.
Used sketchup for small sketches now and then (buildings). Sure have a lot of questionmarks in my head that need to be removed. That's why I am here :D

Hi all,
I'm Stephen, more commonly known as Beezer... I'm from Ireland and was introduced to sketchup recently during my studies in design and innovation. Have had some experience with solidworks and I'm very impressed with SU with its many plugins.
I'm hoping to become fluent in SU and be able to use it to produce engineering parts with my 3D printer.

Hi Rich,

I'm in Armagh

I know I' not in the right thread Rich but like some others I'm having trouble logging in to the Sketchucation store through the plugin. I've tried clearing all browsing data including the cache.

I hope the weathers as good in Munster as here. I'm heading tomorrow morning to Cork for a week in the sun.

Hi all...
I'm Gery, from Indonesia

I've been using SketchUp since 2006 so 7 years till now

SU is very powerful for my design activities. I was doing a 2d drafting with cad software, then build it in SU, render it with vray max. but i no longer use vray cos it's time consuming. now I always use Lumion 3 for my presentation needs.

I just joined this forum, so I hope I'm accepted here :)

Hi, everyone! I'm from Ukraine. I've used SU for about 6 months. Hope to meet help and good advices here. Plugins I've found here is very impressive and helpful. I'm HVAC engineer. Hope I'm not alone, because most of SU users are architects. Here some of my first tries to apply SU to my work. Please, don't judge sternly.

Hi, amis:
Welcome. There are plenty of mechanical engineers active in this forum. HVAC is a specialty of mechanical engineering.
Your model looks very nice and detailed and orderly.
My impression is that architects in this forum may be fewer than many other interest groups. But, in my experience, everyone is helpful and knowledgeable.

Hi, Stephen from Ireland here, currently working in Spain. Been reading the forums for a while now and have been using SU for about 5yrs on/off. Here's my first ever attempt at an external VRay render recently using SU.
Love SketchUp :fro:

Hi there,

Computational geometry has been something I feel attracted to for some time now. I am an artist from the Netherlands and with the ruby API I am now starting to script some simple things, which anyone else probably would do by hand.

My first projects are scripting a pretty straightforward table and one more difficult. This as I understand can be send to computer aided woodfactories and I would not need a saw myself to get my art together. I Already found such a factory.

I am a big fan of Fibonacci and Phi. Esthetics is something I take really seriously!!!
