I am re-organising my workshop and reckoned that Sketchup would be perfect for this.
I have created 3d objects (representing shelving / machinery / benches etc.) by making rectangles to the correct scale and pulling them up.
However I am having real problems moving them around. I had hoped that I could play with different layouts. Seeing how everything fitted together.
The trouble is, I can’t keep them discrete. They merge into one another. I also only seem to be able to move them on one plane. I’d like to be able to move them in 3 dimensions. Also - if I draw a floor plan, the shapes all seem to stick to it.
I am certain that there is a tutorial somewhere, but I haven’t found it through my searching (I probably don’t know the terms).
I’d be grateful to know
- Is Sketchup a good tool to use
- If it is - Am I being too ambitious? Or can someone direct me towards the appropriate help page / terms.
