“Can you do that in SketchUp?” If you can believe it, SketchUp turned fifteen years old this past year. And still, we meet so many people who ask this question. In this video, we teamed up with real SketchUp users to share a story about just how much you can accomplish by designing and documenting your ideas in 3D. As you can see, we used a lot of native SketchUp to make this video! And along the way, we learned that, yes, you can do that in SketchUp.
