Sketchup Blog - News and Notes from the Sketchup folks

Another delicious email newsletter about SketchUp

Posted by Aidan Chopra, Product Evangelist

If you're the sort of person who likes to receive informative, timely and occasionally amusing correspondence in your email inbox, you're in luck. You can now subscribe to no fewer than two such newsletters: the SketchUpdate (which we've been cobbling together for the last six years) and the new all-new CatchUp. Brought to you by our friends at SketchUcation, CatchUp features tips, tricks, interviews and all kinds of other helpful stuff for SketchUp people everywhere. If you're interested, you can sign up to receive it every month by registering for the SketchUcation Community Forums (the registration link is in the upper-left corner).

Allow me to go off on a tangent for a moment. Since I started working on SketchUp three years ago, I've been party to dozens of giddy conversations that involved the application of the suffix "Up" to everything we produce. Some examples: "LayUp" for what we eventually called LayOut; "MatchUp" for our photo-matching feature; "HiccUp" for a minor software bug; "ThrowUp" for a full-out crash—I think you get the idea. Feel free to use the comments thread for this post to add your own to our list.

How about "HookUp" for a new feature that allows the user to constrain ongoing object connections ala Poser.
