I subscribed to that forum some time ago, but never really participated … Time to solve that !
Who are you, who, who?
My name is Jocelyn, 21 years old guy from France. I love 3D printing & I’m a huge car enthusiast.
What is your industry and profession?
I’m an apprentice in an engineering school, and working in automotive industry.
Where do you use SketchUp? Personally/professionally?
I use it only personally for a lot of different purposes : creation of models of cars (real or my own design), making of parts for 3D printing, architectural rendering
Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? (Besides using it to impress the babes/bros…)
I started using it when I was 11 or 12, almost 10 years ago, because it’s really an easy software to understand. And I’ve never left it since SketchUp 6, even if I work sometimes on other softs.
How proficient are you in SketchUp? Beginner, intermediate, advanced?
Hmm … Hard to say, somewhere between intermediate and advanced : I can do almost what I want with SketchUp, but I think that I still have a lot to learn and discover about SKP.
Have you gone to a SketchUp 3DBasecamp?
I would love it, I hope it will be organized in Europe one day
What is your current set up? Computer type, SketchUp version…etc.578 (Your lake house and Ferrari don’t count)
I work on my Asus laptop, 15.4" screen / Intel Core i5 5200U / Intel HD Graphics 5500
Not a beast, but enough for SketchUp
Oh, and I run SketchUp Make 2017.
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?
Sure I have one, here is my page : https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/user.html?id=0344541181552283433102590&nav=models
It’s full of cars, most of them are my own designs, under the fictional brand name “Avantis Motors”
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…)
As I said before, I love 3D printing. I own a 3D Printer, a Dagoma DiscoEasy200.
I’ve shared a few designs on Thingiverse : https://www.thingiverse.com/MrJoce/designs
What is your favorite Emoji?
Do you enjoy long walks on the beach…?
Of course ! And I live not far from the beach ^^
