So I know there are lots of tutorials and what not out there online, unfortunately, while I'm at home where I can hear them, I usually don't have time to sit down and work on learning this wonderful program.
I'm currently looking at a couple different books to purchase that I can take to work with me and get going on learning sketchup. (I'm a 911 operator, and we have lots of downtime and they allow us to use laptops and what not).
The one I'm thinking of getting for sure is:
Sketchup for dummies
There was another one I was looking at yesterday, but just read the reviews on it, and apparently its not all that hot, so back to the drawing board (no punn intended) for a follow up.
