We have just gone over some of the common tools you will be using in SketchUp. In the next section, I will demonstrate how to use some of the tools to draw simple objects. I also recommend you take a leap of faith and let your imagination run wild. Select any tool and simply start drawing. Learning by Example Let’s start modeling by using the tools in the Getting Started toolbar. For our first tutorial, you’ll draw simple shapes in the modeling window, which you will then convert into 3D shapes using the Push/Pull tool.

1. Take the pencil, click the center axes, and drag the mouse outward. As you are doing this, take a look at the Measurement toolbar. The dimensions of the model change as you drag the cursor outward while drawing the rectangle. As you drag the cursor outward, you will see the rectangle get bigger. 2. Click your mouse once more to lock the rectangle in place. You can also add a specific dimension rather than dragging the cursor and trying to estimate the size of your rectangle. Instead of locking the rectangle in place, type the value 500, 500, and hit Enter on your keyboard.
