Well setup , good guide using all good woodworking practices. Review by jaap

The only minus point is that in the skp examples not all data is consistent. some dimensions are tangling, or ar in "text" instead of using the dimension tool.
good usage of components. Is compatible with Cutlist, after some manipulation.
Arts and Crafts cabinet: Drawer pull component not correctly placed.
Overall well recommended

Great Review by Moo

The other review citing "pretty good product - takes a lot of time to learn blah blah blah " is referring to SKETCHUP, not the e-book. These reviews should be for the BOOK. ALL software has a learning curve as does ALL of human endeavor, period. If somebody thinks the software will use itself they are sadly mistaken. THat said - you won't find anything more user-friendly than SketchUp Can it be complicated - yes - but it's 10% as complicated as the typical "CAD" software with a much smaller toolset to learn.

SketchUp is not a "pretty good" anything - it's a pioneering, earth-shattering approach to computer-aided design, and it deserves 10 stars out of 5. The e-Books Tim K. cooks up are equally high quality and deserve as many stars as you can give them. I hate these reviews that 1) Damn with faint praise ('pretty good') and are completely uninformed. Buy SketchUp Pro - it's worth 10x the $500 they ask for it - and seek out/purchase all of Tim' resources, which are also under-priced.

pretty good Review by john

Pretty good design product. Takes a lot of time/work to learn to use. That's just the nature of the beast.
