What Ails You Baby?
In Part 8 I conclude this series by covering material that has been particularly troubling. I get a lot of email from people who are following along but get stuck in a place that is frustrating and confusing. That is normal and part of the learning process. I tried to keep track of which areas were the culprits and this tutorial is intended to shed additional light on them.
To follow along in this tutorial you may wish to download the following two files. Be sure to save these files where you are certain to find them. Click on each of the following files to download and save them:
It may be necessary to right click on the above links and choose Save Link As to download them.
Sometimes the performance of your internet connection, the load on it at a particular time of day, and the length of these video tutorials can all conspire to provide you a frustrating and impossible viewing experience. If this happens it may be preferable to download the entire video unto your system and view it on your local video player. The video file is an mp4. It can be viewed with most video players including QuickTime and Media Player. If you have a default, or user specified, file association for .mp4 you may have to delete it or use a download manager to download this file. Otherwise the associated application may be invoked and file streaming will prevail over downloading. There are numerous free download managers on the internet. Be careful, and do some research to locate one that is not loaded with spyware or viruses.
If you are on a PC platform running Windows OS and have Internet Explorer or Firefox you don’t have to change file association or use a downloader. Simply right click on the link(s) below and choose Save Link As. When Explorer opens choose a destination folder and select Save.

Viewing in Your Browser
You may find it easier to view the video in full screen mode. Start the video before selecting this mode. To enter full screen mode click the little screen icon at the bottom of the video player. When in full screen view hold your cursor near the bottom of the screen to access the video player’s controls. Exit full screen mode with the Esc key. This part is approximately 50 minutes long. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
This concludes the Beginner’s SketchUp Tutorial series. In the not too distant future I will begin An Intermediate Google SketchUp Tutorial – The Video Version series. It will deal with complex shapes and complex curves. The series will parallel An Intermediate Google SketchUp Tutorial written version already available on my Google SketchUp page. So if you can’t wait for the video series you can start there. Until then bye for now.
