If you are new to Sketchup, this series of 6 tutorials will help teach you the basics.  Each lesson is a mini project in which you will learn about different tools and techniques.

Getting Started with Sketchup Part 1

Part 1 introduces you to the navigation tools so you can orbit, pan and zoom around your model, then create a simple house with a few drawing and modification tools.

 

Getting Started with Sketchup Part 2

Part 2 will accelerate your process by creating a more detailed house with some drawing tips and the Follow Me and Offset tools.

 

Getting Started with Sketchup Part 3

Part 3 focuses on an interior space. You will use the Tape Measure tool to create reference edges, learn more about the Offset and Push/Pull tools, copy objects and finally paint surfaces and bring in additional models from the 3D Warehouse.

 

Getting Started with Sketchup Part 4

In Part 4, we create a hallway table to emphasize the use of groups and components in SketchUp. We’ll copy and mirror parts of the table and create detail and accuracy.
