Hi, all! My name is Stevens Miller. I’m working on Unity games and use SketchUp to make my models. Just got into the C API yesterday. I would say I am an intermediate user of SketchUp.

You can see some of my work at my Web site:

Patrick here. Downloaded the trial version and checking things out. Super easy to just brainstorm on this. I took base camp and am playing with models. Using windows 10 with unknown graphics. Playing with designing stuff for 3d printing personal items.

I am a new user to SketchUp. I am a high school art teacher. I wan to introduce my students to 3D modeling, using the free version of Sketchup on Chromebooks (Windows 10). This would be brand new for my school. If it’s successful, we might be able to justify a more robust version that the free one. However, we have had trouble in reaching anyone at SketchUp. We have to have a signed Data Sharing Agreement. Does anyone have suggestions on who to contact?

Welcome.

What do you mean by this?

When you are installing, you get a prompt that says “Install only if you highly trust the source, as it has access to your entire file system” or words to that effect.

When you install any extension you’ll get that message. It’s trustworthy and benign, though. There is a potential for a Ruby script to do things on your system but you can trust the ones available from the Extension Warehouse and Sketchucation.

G’day, everybody, from Australia. My name is Doc and I’m glad to be here.

I make wooden toys for a living and have just recently started (trying) to use Sketchup to ‘redesign’ my stuff in an effort to learn a new skill.

My professional background is Psychology and IT - if I couldn’t fix your IT problem, I could at least make you feel good about it :wink:

I’m a total noob but, I must say, being in my mid 60’s, never thought I could use learning SU to get the ‘babes’ :rofl:

I would like to apologise in advance to group members if I cause old posts/threads to become active again after they haven’t been active for a while but just going through some of the stuff in the gallery is absolutely breathtaking.

Keep up the great work and hopefully I’ll get a chance to learn something and maybe even get to share something.

Regards
Doc

Hi, I’m Andrew

I’m an architect and I use Sketchup professionally. I like Sketchup for its simplicity and my favorite thing about it is the orbit tool.

I’m beginner/intermediate but I’m looking into developing myself. I haven’t been to basecamp, I’m self-taught. I have a Windows 10 system with Pro2016.

I don’t have any models to show for now…
