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.
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.
This is Part 3, which focuses on an interior space. You will use the Tape Measure tool to create reference edges, learn more about the Offset and Push/Pull tools, copy objects and finally paint surfaces and bring in additional models from the 3D Warehouse.
In Part 4 we create a hallway table to emphasize the use of groups and components in SketchUp. We'll copy and mirror parts of the table and create detail and accuracy.
