Start drawing, designing, and rendering your ideas with SketchUp, the inexpensive 3D modeling toolkit used for everything from architecture to game design. George Maestri covers the fundamentals of the application, the interface, and how to model objects from scratch. Plus, learn how to texture objects and create simple animations.
All of the lessons work with both SketchUp Make, the free version of the program, and SketchUp Pro.
Now, one of the first things that you'll notice is that some of the keyboard shortcuts here are different on the Mac than they are on Windows. Now, one of the nice things is that the shortcuts that I call out on Windows will be applicable to the Mac. So the Windows shortcuts do work on OSX. Now another issue is how the toolbars are set up. So if we go into view here, you'll see that we have a menu called tool palettes, and here we can set up a lot of our tools. One of the most important ones is the large toolset, which is a floating window that contains most of the tools that you'll need.
So, you may want to keep this one up so you have access to all of your tools. Now if you want you can customize your tool bars on OSX. So if we go into view, you'll see we have an option here called customized toolbar. And this allows us to take tools from this list here and drag them to our toolbar so if I wanted to I could take a tool here and just drag it however I want. In fact I could drag these wherever I want to rearrange them. If you want to get rid of them, just drag it off, and it goes away. So those are some of the basic differences between OSX and Windows.
And if there are any additional changes, I'll try and point them out throughout the course.
