Has anyone here tried Google SketchUp?

If you haven't heard of it before, it's their free 3D drawing program. Apparently it's easy to use, but perhaps it's even easier when you watch someone with a lot of experience use the application and explain what they're doing.

Take a look at http://www.youtube.com/aidanchopra (not my work, I hasten to add!) and tell me what you think.

Paul

Is this a free program?

I actually trying to create 3D object recently. I don't think I need to do this for the current project, but it's possible that I'll need to use it in the future.

2D and 3D views are just the same file viewed differently.
When in 3D, choose the top view (or any other standard view) from the "Camera" menu to obtain a 2D view. You may disable perspective for a more typical looking 2D view.

Use the Styles window to choose the background color and many other parameters.

When you open a saved file, you start with the view as it was when you saved the file. For new drawings, you start with another SketchUp file, the default template. SketchUp 5 has a default template that starts with a 2D view. SketchUp 6 has a default template that starts with a 3D view with all three axis shown, a colored background, and the Bryce (human figure) component.

Click "Window" > "Preferences" > "Template" to change the default template. You may also browse to your own SketchUp file to set as your new default template or add your own file to the Templates folder to add it to the Drawing Template list.

Hope this helps. If you need more help, refer to the link in my sources.

Not only are you digging up old posts, but you're just copying and pasting material from elsewhere.

So that's you banned. Rolling Eyes

However, whilst we are on the topic... I know the chap who promotes this in the UK. He gave me a little demo, and if anyone really is interested in learning more, I would be more than happy to pass on his details. He also promotes Autocad. Smile
