Welcome to our forums! Please introduce yourself :)

I am a father of 4 children 3 of which have autism. I am also a recent Minister who is looking for new ways to reach my kids since society doesn’t seem to want us here. They all have artist abilities and I bought a laser cutter and wanted to make things besides just engraving like boxes or something original.

@faith1, If you want them to learn SketchUp for being creative a 3D-printer is a fun way to do that. It’s also 3d witch is even more fun than 2D lasercutting! And SketchUp is a 3d moddeling program after all.
They are pretty cheap nowadays.
Happy and creative 2020!

Hi there, my name I Don and I am a pensioner, who likes doing woodworking, I’ve just download SketchUp Make 2017, so yip you guessed right I am a absolute beginner. So I’ve started to work the the bigger tutorials on YouTube. I work on a iMac.

But here’s my question they say SketchUp Make 2017 is free but after downloading it it says this is a trail version and it’s not licensed, Trimble is not interested in helping because it’s a free unsupport product so how do I get around this licence issue.

When you first start with it it runs a trial of the Pro version. After one month it will suggest you buy pro and add a license or agree to the free use terms and conditions and continue with the ‘Make’ version. This means the pro features will stop working but the basic program will continue.

Hi Ameera,

Welcome to SketchUp. What do you want to draw? The beat way to learn is to pick something and start. Then come back here to the forum to ask questions when you get stumped.

No matter what, ALWAYS do what you love and enjoy.

it may sound cliche, but years after high school, money will never matter if you don’t enjoy what you do everyday.

Good Luck!

Hi Folks, Dorrie here.
I’m a bit of newbie in everything…For Now :neutral_face: . As in just retired from Jack of all, Master of none. Was a M.E. major at UT years ago.
Jumping back to a laptop (Omen 15, Nividia geforce gtx 1660 ti, Windows 10) from years of Samsung Android only.
Used Sketchup Free years ago for fun. Just got Shop (as soon as I figure out how to start something other than buy the subscription. :grimacing:
Just started a Ford Transit Van Conversion. I will put the innards like ribs, arches, walls, ect in warehouse as both a learning and giving back project.
I’m interested in a variety of subjects. History, gardening, wood and metal work, architecture, science (bio, physio, phych, astronomy, physics,…)
I bike and hike, and travel a bit.
Oh. I’m also just figuring out how to track and post on forums instead of just lurking about. Sketchup is the second one. I started with Transit forum. I don’t think I’ve stumbled and maybe even helped as much as they’ve helped me so far :slight_smile:
So this is me. Starting my second childhood a little early. I hope you can bear with me while I crawl before I walk. I’ll pass it on asap :slightly_smiling_face:
Blue skies, sun and wind on your back and when you look around may you be at least content. :nerd_face:

bonjour, je commence sur sketchup avec un projet d’aménagement autour d’un spa de nage : abris en bois avec pergola adossée, terrasse bois et escalier. Je suis preneur de toute aide de ceux ayant déjà l’expérience de ce type de composant. Merci d’avance à vous et bonne journée.

I thought where I originally typed this and ‘replied’ under “Welcome to our forums! Please Introduce yourself :)” was the correct place to put the above intro. As you can see I really am a bit of a newbie and don’t know why it inserted there but then I got another request to intro myself. So hope inserting the quote into another ‘reply’ is correct.

The first one was correct, just ignore it if you see it again.
