Catch up on your SketchUp 7 reading

After several months of hard work (and little sleep), our longtime friend Bonnie Roskes has completed a new tutorial book on Google SketchUp 7. This time around, Bonnie has placed an extra emphasis on presentation, styles, scenes, and animation. You can also read about Dynamic Components and walk through the steps to create one of your own. Of course, the basic stuff is still completely covered: components, materials, digital images, Google Earth and Google 3D Warehouse tools, Sandbox - all with lots of new and rewritten content. You can get her books in both print and PDF on her new website, 3DVinci.

For educators and parents, Bonnie has also written classroom teaching-material for SketchUp. The Student Coursebook is a comprehensive SketchUp training course for college and high school levels. For younger students, the ModelMetricks books contain fun design projects for kids age 8-14, and the GeomeTricks books include geometry projects like mosaics, tiling, fractals, and symmetry. Bonnie's books should improve your SketchUp skills, whether you are a first-time modeler or a 3D veteran.

I just bought the newly published Student Course book for further development of my SketchUp Trainings in The Netherlands.

In my opinion, the Bonnie Roskes books distinguish in clarity, completeness and covering the core of a topic. They have a good price/quality value. For the Course Book it's worth mentioning that it's logically composed to learn the concepts of SketchUp quite fast and in a good way!
