I am currently under “assignment” to learn to use Google Sketchup 8.
I was issued some video tutorials which, frankly, are so execrable that 4 minutes into the thing I was looking for something with which to saw open the major blood vessels in my wrists. In lieu of such things, I turned the thing off. To be fair, this was not an official Google product.
Apparently the official Google tutorials all involve video downloads.
Look, I’ll be honest - I HATE “video tutorials”. They move so effing slow. I can read print MUCH faster than any human can speak.
So… are there any PRINT based instruction materials for this program? Anything that doesn’t involve watching hours of long-winded instruction that makes me want to seize the screen and shriek CAN YOU GET TO THE FREAKING **POINT **ALREADY??? How about a print manual? Do those even exist any more?
I don’t want a novel length dissertation. I want simple, clear instructions on how to get started drawing simple shapes with this software, after which I can poke around and learn via making mistakes.
Thanks in advance.
