Thread: Anyone use sketchup?

  1. #1

    Anyone use sketchup?

    Anyone in here ever use Google Sketchup?

    I was wondering if with video tutorials one can pick it up the basics in a day? I need to learn it for my class tomorrow.

    I use it often. It depends.

    Yeah, I use it, its fun...and free. Sure you could learn it from tutorials, but in a day? Depends on how much you need to know and what you need to do with it...

    Just a basic design. I don't think anything too fancy.

    SketchUp is pretty easy to use. Something simple like that you could figure out in a day.
    You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind.

    I got a summers experience in an Architectural office a few summers ago where i basically spend all summer doing Sketch Up models. I knew nothing about it on the first Monday morning i started, and I would have classed myself a world class expert by the Friday of the same week. I would say that the basics could easily be picked up in a few hours, but i had a big background in CAD so that may have made it easier for me.
