instruction

In instruction 4d we really begin to look at Why 3d Design using SketchUp. Easily moving cabinets, making drawers and doors open and close, new tools are ways to experiment with our designs to find and solve interference problems that can occur without the trial and error exploration of 3d designing.

Yeah, I think you've got it bad. What worries me is I feel the same way and keep watching the classifieds feeling we may need a backup Airstream just in case :P

Mrs. Bowman doesn't feel the same way though HAHAHA!

JFerguson, please email me at, airstreamsketchup@gmail.com and attach a copy of your SketchUp file. That way I can download it. Then I should be able to respond with a fix.

A request

Howdy to all who are viewing and/or using these instructions. You can help me in the following ways:
1. When you view a video you will see a row of 5 stars just below the lower left corner of the video picture. You can click from 1 to 5 stars to show how you would rate this instruction.
2. There is also a place for comments lower on the page. Comments on individual instructions can really help me know what's working and what might not be working for you.
3. Send comments and suggestions to airstreamsketchup@gmail.com. This is also a good place to ask questions. Also you can send me copies of you SketchUp files when you have a question on your models.
4. Also Home (Airstream SketchUp Design)
is a good place to go to see all the lessons listed in order.
Your input will help me create better lessons. And we should be able to help others in the design of their trailer projects.
Thanks Don

instruction Cleanup of model

Robert sent in a request to airstreamsketchup@gmail.com with a question on the design he is currently working with. So instruction in "6" section will deal with the solutions to his model. Cleanup of the model. This can get a little tricky so this section of instruction should be helpful to all who are designing.

Robert thanks for sending in your request.

Hey Don,

The Coast Guard has some rather strict rules about youtube and I really want to keep doing your tutorials while I am at sea this summer. I will be taking my personal laptop along but I won't have connectivity underway with my private computer and I won't be able to watch youtube on my Coast Guard workstation.

I figure if I can't work on my airstream at least I can do preliminary designwork. Would it be possible to buy a DVD or CD-Rom with all of your video tutorials on it? You have obviously worked very hard on this and I feel you deserve something for your time, even if it's just a token something.

Thanks,
Jon
