Good Day all, my name is Alan and I am recently retired from doing various types of software engineering, and IT for 40+ years. I’ve played around with Sketchup off and on (mostly off) for the last 6 or 8 years. I can do the basic operations (outlined in the Sketchup for Web Fundamentals series), but haven’t really tried to model anything complex. With my retirement I’m getting back into woodworking after a 20 year gap and would like to use sketchup to help with designing some of the things I would like to build.

I haven’t done 3D modeling and my fear is I will run into how do I build models vs completing projects :thinking:. I realize it is a chicken and the egg problem, but I hope with some basic skills I can get the designs on to paper so I can get into the shop and build things.

Much more of a mountain person than beach person, but at least beaches are flat :slight_smile:

Hi Mike44 here. I am using SU for iPad. I am a semi-retired health professional living on a farm. SU has been helpful with designing small projects. I have really struggled with more complex projects. I still get stuck quite often. Have been trying to create a small cabin but keep getting parts of groups and tags coming out a mess. Will be posting looking for a coach.

Hi Gerhard here,
I want to know if you pay extra for additional users if I buy Pro

A subscription for SketchUp Pro is for one user. You need a subscription for each user. If you have enough users it might be worthwhile to purchase a multi-seat subscription. Check it out at sketchup.com

Hi my name is Rick, previously I worked 25 years for a large Electric Co. in the GIS department using ERSI and AutoCAD until retirement.
Now, I want to give back as an Inventor, Engineer and Architect by designing Energy saving and collection and storage equipment, currently working on a Solar Tracker, Greenhouse, Roof top Solar Arrays and Sand batteries.
Starting drawing with AutoCAD back in the 1980s, Sketchup 23 came easy. It is well designed with high quality results. With Solar Trackers I need moving Animations and I am using dynamic components.
I been using the 3D Warehouse for common parts, wow, what a time saver. In future, I will upload my parts for others to save time too.
Thank you, good health to all, Sincerly, Rick

Greetings from Manila, Philippines!
