I tried unsuccessfully to use gmax, a watered down version of 3DStudioMax, to make 3D models of buildings to import into SimCity 4, but it wasn't until I started using SketchUp that I was able to really get my head around 3D modeling. SketchUp really takes all the frustration out of it. Great article! I'm gonna try and use some of the rendering suggestions.

Sheesh, i dunno... you forgot the most important.

The number 1 kick arse thing you can do with sketchup (imo) is design and planning your Ground-Up PC case. The number of times I've used it to design and play with a layout or design before getting anywhere near cutting or bending the aluminum is great.

The obvious use is to model your home to make planning Ikea trips a cinch. Pretty much everything that Ikea sells has already been modeled for you to try out.

The unique use my girlfriend uses it for is the independent comic book she draws. She has a model of the character's apartment and uses it to frame shots so that everything stays accurate.
