The SketchUp team have started up a new forum for SketchUp and LayOut users. You can find it here. So in addition to the Design. Click. Build. blog and the Sketchucation Forum, there's now another source for assistance and information about using SketchUp. The new SketchUp forum seems to be getting a fair amount of coverage by the SketchUp team members, too. It's definitely a thing to check out.

I'm glad to know that you've benefited over the years from my babbling about SketchUp. ;)

I can't take any credit for this new forum although I will likely participate as I find time. I'm trying not to spread myself too thin, though.

I know your a busy man , with all the effort you put into he existing forums which I visit , and from which i have benefited greatly over the years ( I often wonder how you manage such a sustained effort in each ) but I feel I can't be alone in wondering what is the rationale for another forum ?
