Who are you, who, who? BT Thomas, Greenville, SC, USA
What is your industry and profession?
Small business solutioneer and efficiency consultant
Where do you use SketchUp?
Professionally. Hired to design custom rooms for a cabinetry shop, they showed me DC, and I ran with it, obviating the position they hired me for. Also use it to plan and brainstorm house remodels on the side
Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it?)
Parametric modeling for design, presentation, & production. Love the open source nature of so many third party contributors. Time to give back where I’ve been helped
How proficient are you in SketchUp?
Advanced, but specialized. Haven’t messed with Ruby or very many extensions
Have you gone to a SketchUp 3DBasecamp?
Nope, what’s that?
What is your current set up?
'16 Pro, Self-built desktop when working from home with a 4k 46" TV and 2 26" apple cinema monitors, New Microsoft SurfaceBook laptop that I’m finally acclimated to and loving
Do you have a 3D Warehouse page?
Not yet, will have some models once my clients are ready to share with the community
Anything else you would like to tell us? (e.g., you once saw a UFO & tried to model it in SketchUp to get a prototype 3D printed…)
I did actually see something once- 3AM once night, low- to mid-level cloud cover, and a section of the clouds a ways away faded in green light, then something green emerged and presumably hit the ground. If it was at terminal velocity, it was a ways off because I could track it for the brief moment it was in view. I’m a skeptic of such things and could find no alternate explanation. I guess if it were me, I’d pick a cloudy night when 98% of people are asleep, too.
What is your favorite Emoji?
I’m not seeing it here, but I like the celebrating emoji.
I like to party, so I like my emoji to party
Do you enjoy long walks on the beach…?
Only on islands. I hate backtracking.
