I'm not good at this kind of thing so I'll use your template...
Who are you, who, who? (show us those pearly whites — to start, just one photo if you please )
You asked for it.
Okay, nuts and bolts: I'm 56 years old. 9 years ago they gave me two years to live. I've got two tumors in my brain that seem to come and go as they please. This has caused a variety of symptoms that often change. I have acute sensitivity to sight and sound that pretty much keeps me housebound. I have the memory retention of a deranged squirrel but tons of time on my hands.
My neurologist thought it would be a good idea to try to learn something complex to try to build new neural pathways and to help fill up my time. So several months ago I started out to tackle SketchUp. It has been very challenging as for everything I learn I seem to forget something as well. But slowly I am crafting notes that are making it easier for me to find the info to remind me how to do something.
I have just one project but it is huge and I can work on it until the twins eventually take me down.
What is your industry and profession?
Once upon a time I was a systems analyst (back when mainframes roamed the land)
Where do you use SketchUp? Personally/professionally?
Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it?
Covered the why above. My favor thing is the creating. I have this idea in my head and slowly (3 steps forward, 2 back) it is coming to life. The fact that I foresee that I could tweak it forever is a great bonus.
How proficient are you in SketchUp? Beginner, intermediate, advanced?
I didn't start with an organized approach nor learn in any linear way. So I'd say I'm lower intermediate with huge gaps in my knowledge and who has to work incredibly slowly or things go horribly awry.
Have you gone to a SketchUp 3DBasecamp?
I do not know what that is.
What is your current set up? Computer type, SketchUp version...etc.
I'm pretty sure I entered all that here somewhere. Right now I don't remember other than I'm using Make 2017 on Windows 10. It's a dual monitor system with some power under the hood and an obscene amount of storage space.
Do you have a 3D Warehouse page with your models, Extensions, or a website you would like to link to or show off to us?
Nope. And I haven't felt comfortable uploading anything I've done. My best work is modifications and combinations of other peoples work from the warehouse. Uploading those doesn't seem right. And everything I'm proud of seems so clunky in a month as I learn more.
Anything else you would like to tell us?
Don't put things off. Enjoy life in the moment.
Also I can't figure out the questions for 90% of the things I want to know. Then where to ask them? I'll must likely lurk a lot.
I've nothing but time and as you can see rather verbose. So feel free to message.
