    Dave I could have done with you today but i got by. Been getting back on the sketchup horse and the idea of daily practice is a great one.

    I seem to have a warm up ritual as well when i go to my shop. I tend to spend time cleaning to get back in the mood then start on something. Usually leave my shop as is when i end the time in there so start up by cleaning helps me get back to where i left off.

    I think a sketchup drawing could be good. Wish you were in the same time zone we could consider a common bootcamp time where a bunch of sketchup wanna be operators could get together for a work out or work up.

    Slowly its coming back to me. But i redrew what i was drawing so many times.

    No matter how hard i try i still get to pick points that dont intersect with lines and then have surfaces that are out of whack when i need them to be in a axis plane.
    cheers

    Now there is a good idea! A SketchUp bootcamp with Dave Richards. How would we set that one up? Maybe chatroom session... Surely there is a guru here who could chime in with some technological wonder for this to be pulled off.

    A means to demonstrate by Dave, repeat on my own computer in real time and a methodology to ask and answer questions. Could include practice sessions, sort of like homework on a regular basis.

    What do you think?

    Rob and Carol, the time zone thing could be an issue but beyond that, we have the technology to do something like a bootcamp. I can handle up to 15 people at a time but I've usually done ones and twos. I suppose I could set up homework for people, too. Since it'll all be digital, I won't accept, "The dog ate my homework" excuses.

    Don't worry, Larry. It won't be a daily thing.
