Who are you, who, who?
Hi I’m James
What is your industry and profession? I’m a retired Professional Officer from a University and Hobby Farmer in Australia. I volunteer in the local Mens Shed. Also I am an inventor.
Where do you use SketchUp? At home and at the Mens Shed.
Personally/professionally? Both - I have purchased Sketchup 2017 Pro for use at home for prototype production on a 3D printer. I also teach others to use it.
Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? The user interface is very intuitive and it is quick to produce complex drawings.
How proficient are you in SketchUp? Intermediate to Advanced… depending on how I feel that day !
Have you gone to a SketchUp 3DBasecamp? No
What is your current set up? Computer type, SketchUp version…etc.598 (Your lake house and Ferrari don’t count); My main computer is a Microsoft Surface Book with an external 21" monitor. Running 2017 Pro at the Mens Shed I have a number of computers running Sketchup Make for teaching purposes.
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? Not at the moment - might get to it eventually.
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 see a really interesting cloud formation over Geneva a few years ago -
What is your favorite Emoji? Coffee cup - I need one NOW!
Do you enjoy long walks on the beach…? Beach is a long way away from here but I do walk in the bush (national parks nearby).
