I’m pretty new to SketchUp, but have been watching training videos and messing around. I’m also an IT Engineer as a trade, so fairly technical.
I’d like to draw our entire house into SketchUp and a looking for advice of experts on how to best go about that - or if you have specific training videos that walk through various aspects of this kind of thing.
Things like: which order to do things is best? I’m almost thinking that after messing around a bit that it might be best to start with the measurements of the outside wall first - noting windows, doors and such. Then add the offsets for those outside walls. Then move onto the measurements of the inside walls, add offsets. Then do the push/pull thing up of the various walls and work on the vertical/3D aspects.
But as I know very little, I thought I’d ask here before I get too far along and create a complex web of errors that are difficult to adjust later.
Also, perhaps input on what and when to group during that process. I’m a little unclear if I get my measurements wrong, and I have a 3D box or series of rooms, how to most easily say - move this wall out 3", and move with it the attached wall, extending the length of a room, for example. I want to be able to make minor adjustments in that later ensuring walls stay straight, vertical and don’t get weird on me.
I know that’s a lot packed in there.
Thanks in advance though! This is fun stuff.
