Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring keyboard shortcuts, part of Designing a Tiny House with SketchUp.
- Using keyboard shortcuts is one of the keys to working…more productively and more intuitively with SketchUp.…I provided a shortcuts Excel file in the exercise…files folder for you to customize.…I've also provided a pdf of the…same thing that you can print out.…I recommend that during this course,…you just print out the pdf and use the short cuts…as you see them here.…Then after the course, feel free to make any…changes that you see fit.…I've mapped the most commonly used commands…to single letter keys.…
This way, it works the same on the Mac and on Windows.…I've also arranged the short cuts so that they map…directly to the keyboard.…We work our way across the keyboard on…the top line from Q to P and then we have the second…row of keys, here, from A to L and…the third row from Z to M.…Then there's the space bar and some optional…extra shortcuts you can add at the bottom.…These require a modifier, so you have to press Shift…in conjunction with a letter.…
Many of these shortcuts are already…part of SketchUp by default, many of them are not.…
In this course, author Scott Onstott shows step-by-step how to build a tiny house, including every virtual stud, sheet of plywood, and appliance going into the project. Along the way, he explores SketchUp features such as components, groups, layers, and textures. By building a house in SketchUp in this detailed manner, you can work out any unforeseen spatial conflicts in the design and virtually eliminate construction problems before you are in the field.
