    It’s a wonderful idea.
    I am an interior designer and use SU daily, for many years.
    Currently I’m following even an evening course SU, a normal level, and yet I am always surprised how much I still learning.
    There is so much to do with SU in different disicplines.
    I really also want to create a blog, but then in dutch version and focused on interior design. Everyone can not easily follow in another language. I would like it to work with other people, like you for example.
    Follow me on and
    Sorry for my english, I’m so different language.

      Hi Danny, I like your work. Personally, I haven’t even begun to dive into the world of rendering Sketchup models. Like you said, there’s so much to learn. Even with such a simple program like Sketchup. FYI, I’ve been uploading captions to most of my YouTube videos, and you can select your native language and it will translate for you. Perhaps that would be helpful. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Matt, Thank’s for what you’ve produced and shared, this is really great. I’m a 3D modeller mainly in 3DS Max and recently started working for a 3D printing/laser cutting/CAD,CAM company. Because we create tutorials and workshops for schools, I need to learn sketchup. Your podcasts will be so useful for me during my (long) train journeys to work and back. Meanwhile, I’ll be following your MasterSketchup tuts. Thanks again. June
