Who are you? Hi all
I’m Peter Hammell and am brand new to Sketchup, I love woodwork and am in the process of making my workshop - purely as a hobby.
What is your industry and profession? Before I retired I was an electrical engineer and worked in many different countries around the world. Smashing - travelling around the world at someone else’s expense
Where do you use SketchUp? Personally/professionally? Personally
Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? (Besides using it to impress the babes/bros…) Like I said, I’m in the process of re-building my (small) workshop so obviously space is at a premium so I’m just trying to ensure I get it right this time. I’ve been using a 2D drawing program just for layout, sizes etc. which is OK but far from ideal when I would prefer it in 3D. Can’t really say what my favourite thing about the program is - I’ve literally only been using it for a few days (hours), I’m still getting to grips with making a rectangle

New to the forum.
Just looking help and guidance. Planning on doing all future architectural work on sketch up pro, if that is possible.
Hoping to find what I need here.
Greetings to all,
My name is Craig Bixler
I retired a couple years ago from a great career at Molex where I was in product design my whole career. Works my way up with product design from Design Engineer to finally Global VP of product engineering. Great challenging position but little tough on airline time.
I was proud to say I was in Molex’s first CAD class as well as our first 3D class and eventually on of the last programs I had was bring in Siemen’s NX. I always knew about SketchUp but it really was not viewed and an enterprise tool for what ever reason.
As I advanced in management I am sad to say I lost my modeling skill and actually reverted back to the old drawing board and pencils for my home projects. For more complex things I would depend upon some friends to model for me which hurts my ego because I loved the tools.
I started using SkechUp about 2 months ago and am just amazed! What a powerful package.
I usually use a MacBook Air daily but to keep the peace with my wife, I blew the dust off my PC in the basement office where I could go to work. My workshop is also down there so it’s all good. I tend to stretch out with my notes and does look messy.
Never went to BaseCamp and actually just found out what it is. Maybe when I get a little better.
I am not using the pro version but feel strongly I like the tool so much I will be pulling that trigger.
I will say to those that never used other modeling tools I find SU an amazing tool and so easy to use.
My main interest:
Modeling for woodworking
Modeling for interior design ideas
Modeling for house remodeling ideas
Just having fun!
Anyway went long on this post but covered the main points.
Hi all I am Aldo from Sardinia, Italy, I am developing an autonomous quadruped robot and I am using SketchUp to simulate different settings and test scenarios.
Just I need some tips
I am here for a while, but I have never introduced myself. My name is Robert and I am an architect. I am working at Fort architects in Gdańsk (Poland) and I am professor assistant at Gdansk University of Technology.
3d modeling (SketchUp, Rhino3d, Revit)
My name is Harold and I’m from Oregon, USA currently. Many years ago, before PCs, I studied Industrial Design at Auburn U. So I learned drafting and sketching by hand. Though I seldom had to use these skills in my career(s), I have used them privately and moved on to electronic as soon as I could, using Drawingboard which has now incorporated into a very expensive package I can’t justify purchasing.
My main career was an Orthotist. We designed product right to models of patient’s bodies. But I I was doing house remodeling in my spare time. I kept trying to incorporate my computer into my work. Drawingboard was perfect and intuitive. Later, when Sketchup came out, I couldn’t figure it out and put it aside. After retiring from orthotics and going into operating an adult foster home, I had a bit more time and started playing with it more. I still can’t justify buying the full version so use Make and it’s still taking me a long time to learn but I am learning and seeing the advantages of the software.
I use a fairly powerful Windows 10 computer using the on board graphics card.
Who are you? Hi I’m Justin!
What is your industry and profession? I’m in charge of I.T. at a Waste Treatment Plant in Texas.
Where do you use SketchUp? Personally/professionally? I use SketchUp at home for personal use.
Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? I use SketchUp to get an idea of how I/my wife would like to arrange things in our house. Also, I use it for wood working and now I’ve decided to use it for my animation backgrounds and scenes on YouTube. It’s different and not many animators on YouTube does this.
How proficient are you in SketchUp? Beginner, intermediate, advanced? I’d say that I’m intermediate.
Have you gone to a SketchUp 3DBasecamp? No, never heard of this.
What is your current set up? I have a custom built PC that I built back in collage. I also use the latest version of SketchUp.
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? I don’t have any uploads yet. I will start uploading eventually ha ha.
Anything else you would like to tell us? If you’re interested I my animated YouTube channel is called Justoshow.
What is your favorite Emoji? My favorite Emoji is the cool shades! I send it to my wife all the time because I’m cool in my head ha ha.
Do you enjoy long walks on the beach…? I would, but Texas heat sucks in the summer. Also, Galveston beach is nasty. However, I’ve been to a beach in Mexico and loved it. The sand and water was so clean. I learned how to snorkel there and had a blast. Going to Cali in April for my birthday so I’m looking forward to experience there beaches. Maybe learn how to surf.

Where do you use SketchUp? Personally/professionally? Both! I use it for hobbyist woodworking stuff, but I also use it daily to produce shop drawings and design proposals.
Why do you use SketchUp and what is your favorite thing about it? (Besides using it to impress the babes/bros…) It’s almost like I think in SketchUp. It works the way my brain thinks about design. It’s become another appendage for me.
How proficient are you in SketchUp? Beginner, intermediate, advanced? Intermediate, aiming for advanced
Have you gone to a SketchUp 3DBasecamp? No, not yet.
What is your current set up? [Computer type, SketchUp version…etc.] (Your lake house and Ferrari don’t count) **2010 iMac with added memory and storage, SketchUp 2015 pro **

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’ve been using this lovely program since about 2008-9. **
What is your favorite Emoji? Rather partial to the pile of poo
Do you enjoy long walks on the beach…? Not really. I don’t like getting wet and generally despise sand.
Hi and thanks for the welcome.
I am Dave. i am an engineering manager but at one point, I did have skills
I have worked in as few industries. From optical fibre, their measurement and prediction, through to the automotive industry, from powertrain through to exteriors. I have used all the ‘standard’ packages, CATIA V4/5, NX/UG, Solidworks, Rhino etc, etc.
I have only just come across SketchUp and thought it might be fun to use on some personal projects that I have in the pipeline.
Having said that it is probably obvious that I haven’t a grasp of even the basics let alone the the finer points of SketchUp. However, in the very brief ‘play’ that I have had, it does seem to be a straight forward package with what seems to be some very simple yet powerful tools.
As I alluded to earlier, I no longer do anything for a job so I am using a gaming laptop which seems to be well suited to running the web based version of SketchUp. I am looking forward to making use of trial period of the SketchUp Pro 2018 on my kit.
Thanks again for the welcome. I look forward to reading some of the expert help that is available on the forum and getting to grips with SketchUp.
Hi everyone, I’m Filippo, and I’m currently study architecture in switzerland, I really love using sketchup, and even before signing up on the forum I was a great reader every time I use to have a problem.
I love Sketchup, it’s a great software, both for really easy and complex stuff! I really hope to help someone in this forum!
Thank again for the welcome
hi this is Teluguwap A Community of Telugu Songs Blog Administrator and Blogger Glad to Hear About Sketchup and i am New to it
MarkOfEarth near Seattle. Fairly new to Sketchup. Designing a deck addition with 3 new sets of stairs (2 with winders), an infrared sauna, slide out storage, etc. I have more questions than answers right now.
Sorry but you made me shiver. This is a sauna:
Linking “infrared” with “sauna” is a contradictio in adjecto.
I seem to be a sauna-patriot…
