Hi guys.
i tryd to make a raw skiss of a handle in sketchup.
i wish i could do better but im new to the program.
i like the idea of trying it out on "paper" first. do we have a guy in here who can make badass drawings? would love to know.

That is awesome. I bet you spent as much time making that as it would take to make the actual thing!

I remember WillC posting some pretty cool drawings awhile back. I know that Adam Marr (watercrawl on the other forum) uses google sketchup for his handle dawings than then uses pictures of actual available wood that he has to "skin" the model and show different combinations.

For the sake of communicating design to a maker though, I think that it would be more useful to do some more technical drawings with dimensions. Like the standard isometric views with orthographic projection:

Yeah thats what i did. took picture of the wood i had and made that skin. i have all dimensions hidden in the video. i like the standard cad programs to like autocad. very good for 2d and isometric views. i use that alot when i work with a cnc machine. first draw in autocad and then import the drawing file to gibbscam and make a cnc program.
