Getting Started with Google Sketchup

I would like to give a personal shout-out to Evan and Turner for being the first to successfully do this AND to help others out by screencasting their success!!!

After EVERYONE screencasted their successes, we had a bracket challenge in each class. Eliza was the BRACKET WINNER of Orange 1! Check out her screencast on how to make a nametag!

I found these online ... if you get time, check 'em out!
  • Getting Started with SketchUp - Part 1 - Learn the fundamentals of SketchUp by following along with this video series. Each video is a mini-project that will introduce new tools and essential techniques to the SketchUp work flow. This is Part 1, and will introduce you to the navigation tools so you can orbit, pan and zoom around your model, then create a simple house with a few drawing and modification tools. 
  • Getting Started with SketchUp - Part 2 - Learn the fundamentals of SketchUp by following along with this video series. Each video is a mini-project that will introduce new tools and essential techniques to the SketchUp work flow. This is Part 2, and will accelerate your process by creating a more detailed house with some drawing tips and the Follow Me and Offset tools.
