SU Section

Postby modernist » Sun Feb 24, 2013 7:47 am

In the light of the increasing use of SU and the various queries we see posted should we have a dedicated section where we could build up experience to share? I posted this previously without sensible response but now Prom is asking the same thing and we do have some experts on here (and I certainly could use the help)
Cheers

Me too. The problem with all these programmes is that, if you have the memory of a fruit fly like me, then just learning how to do something is not much use if it's forgotten next time you need to do it. Having a resource of tips and advice would be really useful to refer back to.

I think it is becoming just as an essential tool as anything else in the workshop, in some ways more important.
I'd vote yes :)

Yes please. It could be used to post links to relevant tutorials too.

doesn't matter mate. Thinking about it, a section would be OK but surely there are enough forums on the subject already?

Dunno ... I play here mostly :)

I'd imagine an SU forum would not have the specific WW related content in concentrated form, that we would get here.

Theres nowhere near enough interest to have a dedicated section for SU. Perhaps a sticky somewhere dedicated to links to appropriate material.

What's the forum equivalent of a ghost town?

We have one for boats which has 270 threads since 2007. maybe it would develop as it went along.

in which case, it wouldn't make much difference to have another sub section and see how it goes :)

While I've only been a member here for a short time, I have used sketchup for nearly 7 years daily so I know it pretty well. I'd be happy to try and answer any questions if you decide to make a section for it.

Now I've had a chance to sleep on it how about widening the scope to a design forum including all CAD and design issues?

Good idea - some of us don't use CAD and still use a pencil and the back of a fag packet :lol:

There are very few posts on SU or other CAD. I too feel that if such a section were created it would be a wasteland rather like boats and cooking.

Hi all,

Why don't we start with an SU sticky?

Ok, here's an SU Tutorial Thread to start things going.
Cheers,

I have opened a Design/Development forum. We'll see how it goes but if it is underused I'll move the posts to General Woodworking and remove it. There is no point having any more sections that only get a few posts a year. :lol:
