Tori-CropPortrait-EdR2
My name is Erik. I’m a Dutchman, 59 years old, and I’ve been living in Denmark for almost 25 years now.
I graduated from the Academy for Architecture in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in the late 90’s. Here in Denmark, I have made a living as a translator/proofreader for 2 decades, but I’m now slowly finding my way back to my original profession and would like to be able to work - at least part-time - with design again. I have tried quite a few CAD and 3D programs over time (AutoCad, ArchiCad, DenebaCad, Bryce, to name a few) but so far, SketchUp seems to be the first one that actually seems to ‘work for me’. Intermediate user - with a keen interest in getting better. My favorite thing about SU is its ease of use. Not been to a 3DBasecamp (yet); No Warehouse page (yet). I’m running SU 2017 Pro on a not-quite-new desktop with a decent FirePro 3800 graphics card, an Intel i7-870 processor running at 2.9 Ghz and 4 Gb of RAM

Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? Because I can’t draw freehand or do math in my head any more. I use SU because it hides the fact that I can’t draw freehand or do math in my head any more :smiley:
How proficient are you in SketchUp? Beginner, intermediate, advanced? I’m just a cotyledon on the tree of knowledge.
Have you gone to a SketchUp 3DBasecamp? Bucket list.
What is your current set up? Computer type, SketchUp version…etc. SU Make '17 on a 2015 MBP 15’
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? Bucket list.
Anything else you would like to tell us? I would love to have a SketchUp drawing of each of my cats. Any volunteers?
What is your favorite Emoji? :scream:

Hello i am Lee, i’m a new Sketchup user and have started working with the software this month. I’m very impressed with the end products i can achieve and how quickly i’m picking up the software. I’m a Mac and Windows user, currently working as a Mac Technical assistance, so if there are any Mac qualms i could offer my wisdom :slight_smile:


#899

First time Sketchup 7 user. I bought several Ruby scripts and put them in the plugins folder under sketchup, restarted sketchup, but nothing shows up. Extension Manager looks for *.rbz files but I can’t select *.rb files. What’s wrong?


Installing Scripts
#900

Francis “Butch” Hodgkins, Retired civil engineer and current woodworker, which is my primary need for SketchUp. The greatest thing about sketchup is being able to draw in three dimensions using exact dimensions, and then being able to disassemble and reassemble what you have drawn. I use make and get frustrated because of the loss of functionality that is in Layout. I am looking for a 3D program to purchase, but less costly,

I am not proficient, because I do not use it enough to remember how to use it from one session to the next. Additionally, I am 73 and I think my brain is shrinking,: Certainly my memory is.


#901

Hi,

I’m Charlie. I normally use AutoCAD but I’m giving SketchUp a shot! Any advice is very welcome (I’m currently struggling to even get it up and running!!!)

I’m a Set Designer for TV, Film and Stage and I’m hoping to use Sketch Up to develop my 3D Printing skills for my pre-production scale models.

Cheers x

Hi and welcome to each and every new SketchUp Community Forum member. Recently several folks have posted here with just their names. In all but one of these cases the post was removed because it revealed nothing more than their name and offered no other information. A typical intro will tell something more about who you are and what your interests (especially those related to SU) really are. So please take a few moments to actually introduce yourself to the Community. Be sure to fill out your member profile too because knowing your system setup and the version of the SketchUp software you are using will help us to respond to any issues you may want to post. Lastly, for every new user’s convenience, the Forum Guidelines are hyperlinked here. Just click the bold text to be taken directly to them.

To those of you who recently posted only your names, please come back and let us know what you are doing with this amazing software tool.


#903

Hey Butch (or @Skibutch1),

From a semi retired architect (because very few self employed architects actually ever retire completely), it’s good to see other older professionals coming to this software. I encourage you to keep experimenting with SketchUp, because you will get better at it as you go. IMO, you will be hard pressed to find another 3D program at a less expensive cost that does what this one can. Try downloading and following along with the various beginner and intermediate SU video tutorials. These are an excellent source to expand your modeling skills.


#904

I am SketchUp1, a new user with a dilemma. I am starting to learn today on a Windows 10; an old stogie set set in his ways that has to learn a new program from PowerPoint 2017. I am retired, no longer employed. I am a designer of a sort; nothing on the market and most likely won’t be.
