DIY - Modeling a Car/Truck in SketchUp


Recommended Posts

Hey, thanks, CADken! I was wondering what happened 2 U!


I love Google's Sketchup program and am getting better at modeling, but I still need help getting the program to do some basic things.


I will study the "free pin method" you mentioned and check out the other board too.


Thanks 4 your help, guy, but don't stay away 4 so long next time!:D
