@shobhith please don’t post the same thing twice.
It’s also not a very good example of how to make a table.


#473

Hey box
It’s written in that video that it’s just a beginners guide and an easy way to do it so consider it keeping it in mind
Thank you
Shobhith

It should be written that it is a guide from a beginner.

This is not a subject for this thread. When our new Community manager gets time I’m sure it will be shunted to an appropriate place.

My name is Will and I’m a SketchUpper.

(Hello, Will).

I have just retired after spending 20 years in the retail industry designing store environments and fixture /POP components. I have been addicted to SU for the last 4 years. Prior to that, I was a hardcore AutoCAD evangelist, teaching and modeling with it since the early 1990’s (before it really even had 3D modeling). But after 10 minutes with SU, I was hooked, and I can proudly say that I cannot (effectively) use ACAD anymore!

To me, it’s the intuitiveness of the software, and the ease with which I can “sculpt” in pixels that drew me and keeps me in SU. I would call myself an advanced user, but after attending 3DBasecamp this year, I realize I am on the beginner’s side of the advanced platform.

Since I’m newly retired, I need to get a setup so I can open my own design firm. Initially, I’ll be on this forum looking for hardware recommendations, I plan to use the most current SU Pro (2016, at this time).

I’ve a few models in the Warehouse, and I plan to be certified later this year. Once I have a website for my business, I’ll post that.

Other than the fun questions, that about sums up my intro. Really looking forward to getting on to the next phase of my career and interacting with all the other SketchUppers!

(My fun question: does anyone else add an S to the Heinz bottles in restaurants?)

Hi there. I guess this is the new forum, so here I am.

My name is C.B. Edgar. There seems to be a avatar in my profile, so that will do for a photo. :grinning: And there is a smile, so… :smiling_imp:

I am a retired electronics engineer, and I have used SketchUp since before they were Google, but not for my job. I use it for woodworking, remodeling, landscaping, decorating. And of course to impress the babes. :smirk:

I am pretty good with it. I use it in spurts, but I guess I am more or less expert. I have never gone to a 3DBasecamp, but I watched the streaming talks, back when they recorded and streamed them.

I use SketchUp Pro on a MacBook Pro 15inch, mid 2010. I have an Apple magic mouse, keyboard, and a 21" external color calibrated display. I have the pay by the year version of SketchUp, and currently I am using the 2016 version (16.0). I have used a bunch of 3DW models. I am not sure I have contributed.

Beach is good, but long walks require additional incentive.

Hi, I am a newbie, having dabbled in the past, some five years ago. I am modelling a house extension for my self-build, and somewhat in awe of the complex models I see on display in various places. Sketchup is not my main pastime, though, I need a quickly learnable basic tool to model house building blocks, doors, windows, lintels etc - and eventually a roof! So, I am on the free version - happy to go to an upgrade sometime, but I can’t see any features that would improve my life… :wink:

I am new to SketchUp and plan to use it to build a deck and possibly furniture as a hobby.

Hello! I am Chelsea and I am new to 3D design, though I’ve been working with computers for 20 years as a developer and designer. I’m hoping to get my feet wet here and teach myself how to start creating files to use for 3D printing.
