Some of you are just too dam good with the designs in Sketchup. Any other tips. I saw the videos on the Sketchup site.

how do you get the designs in so much detail? to show studs and sheets of drywall, etc, etc?

Practice makes Progress? :lol:

Group? I have seen that on one of the menus. But I dont fully understand what you mean. Do you mean all the small objects?

I just thought there might have been and easier way to draw a full wall showing the 2x4 studs. I guess I woul dhave to draw each stud one by one. or maybe copy and paste...then made the whole wall into a group. :lol:

Nuk - lets say you make a box by making a square and pushpulling it vertically. Once you 've done that select it all and right click make group.

You can then moveit, rotate it etc. If you want to change it you double click it and you can alter it.

For studs etc there is a Ruby Pluggin called Housebuilder. One of the neat aspects of sketchup is the ruby scripts others have written for it.

Go to the sketchup forum http://forum.sketchup.com/


and download housebuilder

http://forum.sketchup.com/showthread.ph ... builder.rb

and install it into you plugins folder in the sketchup root directory. Then reboot sketchup and it will appear as a set of icons.

In house builder you can stipulate the wall height, stud size etc. When you click on the make wall icon you can then draw where the wall goes and bingo - a stud wall is made. You can then select door maker, state the height etc and it will automatically insert a doorway with a top plate etc. similarly with inserting a window.

There are various other ruby scripts and they are adding new ones all the time.

cheers

I can't find the free version of sketchup on their site. They have a free version for educators, but that's it.
