I am new to SketchUp (2 days old) and so far I am enjoying using it. SketchUp was recommended to me by my CAD Mechanical Professor, due to the arduous time I was having with creating a 3D object in AutoCAD. I spent countless hours attempting to create my final with no light at the nend. When I stared using SketchUp, the light burned so brightly, I am not partially blind (not serious). In just he past couple of days, spening roughtly 8 hours (remember Iam still learrning SketchUp) vs over 30 hours in AutoCAD, and I have made significant headway.
I wanted to share this story, and my project thus far. Even though it is not complete, and it does not have to be perfect, I am happy with the results from a beginner stand point.
ALso to note, the only videos I have watched for assistance were how to use move, drag, copy, lengthen lines, and how to use intersection. Other than that, I am self taught.
I am open to ideas, suggestions, and such as well.
