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.
And finally I want to show you one more thing that you can do with components and that's interact with them. Now, again, this is functionality that is applied using SketchUp Pro, but any SketchUp user can take advantage of it, if it is part of the component. So we have a tool here called the interact tool. So if I select this, you'll see I get a little finger. And I can touch that to whatever object I want. So as I hover over this, notice I have kind of a no symbol here, but if I hover over the right things, it lights up.
And so if I click on that, you can see I can open and close certain parts of my model, so if I wanted to open and close the doors, or the drawers of my cabinets or my dishwasher. I can do that. So some models that you download will have this inner activity enable. And this is really handy, let's say your designing a kitchen and you want to make sure that the refrigerator door doesn't bang into the oven or something like that, well you can set everything up. And interact with your kitchen if that's part of the components that you have.
And make sure that everything works properly. Now just as a reminder, you can add this using SketchUp Pro if you have it, but SketchUp Make users can take advantage of this if it's part of the component.
