[Season 1, Episode 4] SketchUp Talk: What it means to be a Maker with Eric Schimelpfenig

If there's one thing we love about our community, it's the sheer amount of makers and doers (our version of movers and shakers) that push the boundaries of what's possible in SketchUp. This week on SketchUp Talk, we explore that world with one such maker, Eric Schimelpfenig. 

Eric is a maker, fabricator, builder, designer, printer, and so much more. In fact, when asked what he does for a living, his response was simple: "I'm not entirely sure."

In this episode of SketchUp Talk, Caroline, Aaron, and & Eric discuss:

  • What it means to be a professional "maker"
  • How SketchUp saved him from big CAD
  • Trash bins & getting the call from Google
  • From designing kitchens to modeling arcade machines 
  • The world of CNC
