I am just getting started w/ sketchup program and I am using the 2017 trial version. I am working on a HP Pavilion computer w/ windows 10. The system has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD graphics card mounted to the mother board and has 4GB of Ram. I have viewed several videos (Sketchup for woodworking) and it is really an great program to help me make sure I measure twice and cut once. If you know what I mean
I keep having some difficulties when trying to move an object. The object will twist from its current angle (ie) 90 degrees thus making it hard to line up against another object. I do not see this happening in the videos and I suspect it is because of the age of the computer and lower amount of RAM. Before I go off and either upgrade RAM or purchase a new computer I wanted to get input if this is the reason behind the issues I am experiencing, or am I just to much of an “Novice” and this will stop as I continue to learn.
Trimble management / ownership …. If you happen to read this … I wish I could afford the full / pro version however as a home user using it for projects around the house this not open for discussion with the family needs and just NOT in the budget at all !! If not upgrading to the “paid” programs is a problem w/ receiving help / suggestions I totally understand. if you happen to read this …. Why can’t you come out w/ an affordable version for the Homeworker / project maker???
Any suggestions for relief of this problem are greatly appreciated.
