  • Learning SketchUp

    If you are interested in learning SketchUp or in building out a custom tool trailer you might want to watch Ron Paulk's series of YouTube videos as he designs and builds his next mobile workshop trailer.

    He goes into great detail on using SketchUp to develop the layout of the trailer. I've watched about 10 of the series so far and picked up a number of tips on using SketchUp. I'm new to SketchUp but have used AutoCAD in the past but its not something I do every day or even once a week so not as proficient as most people.

        Do you get an academic discount for the Solidworks License? I'm sure most people cannot afford to pay for a full license for Solidworks for DIY type projects. I occasionally use Sketchup and I also have a copy of Revit which I use sometimes for some of my projects. But Revit is only really made for doing designs with structures/building so I'm not sure it has much use elsewhere. Autocad may be useful in some cases but again $$$.

          We have a bunch of licenses for solid works. I have no idea what the district paid for it.

            Sketchup Pro at $695 is not cheap either. Not as much as Autocad but still.
            If you don't pay for Sketchup Pro the only other choice is the free version
            which is limited in features. I am surprised there is no student version that
            is $99, maybe with a time bomb that dies after four years when you're out
            school or college.

            ​There are some decent AutoCAD knockoffs out there but they are a few hundred dollars too.
