LEARN FROM A PROFESSIONAL!
As a production designer in the film industry I have been using SketchUp for over 12 years.
All of the imagery on this site I created using SketchUp.

Saturday Night Live and hundreds of commercials including Google, Capital One and Garnier, Gatorade and Apple Computer!
I have also used SketchUp for architects, interior designers, decorators and home builders.

It's really helped step up my game with customers, my boss is stoked, and my guys in the shop are also happy to get much better and more accurate drawings before we put something into production (I make furniture).
