Free Download: How to Use SketchUp Tools
FineWoodworking.com’s Design.Click.Build. blog is required reading for anyone who uses the SketchUp 3D drawing program—and that’s according to the official Google SketchUp blog. Now one of the Design.Click.Build creators, Tim Killen, has published the Bible on how to use SketchUp strictly for woodworking.
Killen’s new e-book, “The SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers,” is destined to become required reading for woodworkers who are new to SketchUp as well as people who want to hone their skills. Until now, it’s been hard to find complete, step-by-step info in one spot. This book is the culmination of Killen’s efforts to fill that information gap.
Get a taste of what this book is all about by downloading a free chapter on how to use SketchUp tools. The chapter will help familiarize you with eight of the basic tools including the line, eraser, push/pull, select, rectangle, circle, arc, and tape measure.
