Those Trimble tutorials are great IMO. I would suggest that new SketchUp users :
Download the four part getting-started-series from https://sites.google.com/site/sketch...started-series and watch and practice the basics.
Download the four Combined-Videos for Toolbars from https://sites.google.com/site/sketch...etchup-toolbar, watch them all initially, and then only watch them as and when needed.
The tutorials here are also a good starting point - www.sketchupforwoodworkers.com
The Following User Says Thank You to WandrinAndy For This Useful Post:
the links for the first 4 part series are coming up in french and i cant see the download button :/
lol when i click your links the text on the page is still in french.. i think this is the last straw for me now.. time for a reformat.. i'll report back in a hour or 2 and hopefully them links will work as i really need to start moving forward now
nope strange still showing in french even after a reformat and new install of windows :S i have however just clicked what i thought was the download button and i now have the vids thank you
Ah... suspect you've been pulling my leg about the French...
Hope your download's not in Greek or Tagalog. Lol
i can take a screenshot ya know ;)
made it through the first 3 videos now so thank you for that.. somethings really starting to make sense so hopefully i'll be drawing up my machine some time soon
thanks very much for the "View>component edit>hide rest of model to fully isolate the element so you can work on a part that would otherwise be hidden - can be a life saver some times! (hope i'm not teaching you to suck eggs but someone is bound to find that tip useful.)"
It makes life so much easier
I have a space navigator that I use to navigate round in sketchup and it's great, I paid £20-£25 for one a few years ago but they seem to have shot up in price to £80-£100. Not sure if I would pay that much for one, but if anyone is finding mouse navigation in 3D a pita and also has a chunck of change burning a hole in their pocket...
This is a demo of one being used in eaglecad

And if the price is offensive to you you could always make your own with a cnc machine/3d printer
