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.
SketchUp has a lot of tools and you may want to have easy access to these. We can actually turn those on and off using the toolbars function. So if we go into view, we have an option here at the top called toolbars and this brings up a little window here, and this allows us to turn on or off any number of toolbars. So for example, one of the most popular ones is called the large tool set. So when I turn this on, it brings up a lot of other tools that I may or may not want to use.
If I turn off the getting started tool set, you can see now I've got either the large tool set or the getting started one. We can have both of those. I'm going to turn on the large tool set here. And we also have additional toolbars. If you want you could turn on one for say, layers. To manage your layers' measurements, we could turn one on for additional drawing tools which kind of mirrors the one that we have in our large tool box. Camera tools, construction tools, those sorts of things. So each one of these is a standard tool box.
Now if we want we could turn on a couple of these. And you can actually arrange these, you can actually just click and drag, right there, and you can actually move them around, to create your own custom toolbars, if you want. Okay, so I'm actually going to turn off all of these, and just leave the large tool set open, which is typically how I work. So just go ahead and know that you can turn on or off toolbars as needed to customize your interface.
