"What's the best way to..."
Sound familiar? That's the way so many questions start when someone asks for help with SketchUp. I almost always go with the standard answer of, "The best way to do it is the way that works best for you!" While this is true, it does beg the question: "Is it better to do with an extension?"
Well, let's dive in and answer that question! I figured I should take a shot at modeling something a little off the beaten path. I decided to model a bag of chips; once with native tools, only, and once with the help of extensions.
First up, modeling using only tools that can be found with a default installation of SketchUp Pro!
Well, it looks like there was a difference! I guess this is an example of the old saying, "the right tool for the job!"
Now, if you get a job modeling bags of chips, you'll know exactly what to do!
