This is the main category for all things SketchUp.
LayOut is a 2D drawing program that comes with SketchUp Pro. This tool is fantastic for communicating your SketchUp designs with others. If you're interested in talking about better ways to use LayOut, share a problem you have with the software, or want to learn more about LayOut, this is the place to be.
If you've ever been asked "How do I do this" and then proceeded to answer the question – then this is the forum for you! The "Tutorials" category is a place to create posts explaining how to do things, a place to answer the question from another Category and then refer back to often. You're invited to use inserted images, inserted 3D Models (from the 3D Warehouse of course) or to just attach example files. To try to keep this as clear as possible, a handful of guidelines:
The 3D Warehouse is the online repository for SketchUp files, you may visit it at <a href="https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com">https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com</a>. You might post in here if:
The Extension Warehouse is the online repository of Extensions for SketchUp. You can visit it at <a href="http://extensions.sketchup.com/">http://extensions.sketchup.com/</a> . You might post in here if:
my.sketchup is the new web based version of SketchUp, available from any computer and even mobile devices (with some limitations.) To use it you'll need to visit <a href="http://my.sketchup.com">my.sketchup.com</a>, sign-in and Launch it. Be sure you review our <a href="http://help.sketchup.com/en/article/3000316">F.A.Q.</a> and Overview articles in the Help Center to be sure you're familiar with my.sketchup and come back here to post as your needs and desires dictate.
If you've installed SketchUp on your tablet then you're using the Mobile Viewer. You may post here if:
There is a cornucopia of functionality for SketchUp available by community created Extensions but sometimes it's hard to find them or even harder to find a way to support them. You can use this category to announce your Extension, Describe your existing Extension or to answer questions and technical problems when they arise.
The Developers category is the place to discuss Ruby scripts, the Ruby API, the SketchUp SDK or other plugins for use with SketchUp.
The Corner Bar is a place for folks who are passionate about the SketchUp Community but don't necessarily have some SketchUp-y to talk about. Another way to think about it, this is for "Off Topic" conversations to happen.
