+Patrick Westfeldt Yo! I think that sometime last year, I recommended you check out Shape Bender for geometry manipulation along a path...

Here's another option... consensus is that it's a step-up from Shape Bender!
Flowify is an extension that bends groups or components along a quad surface. The source geometry is related to a projection grid and the geometry is then mapped onto a quad target surface. Inputs to the extension are groups or components of source geometry and a group called the support group ...

Hey there, G+ folks!

I'm trying to transfer ownership of a G+ page (+SketchUp) from my Gmail account to another Gmail account, and I keep getting an error message. Has anyone run into this problem? Any workarounds?

Thanks for your help!

we are trying to do the same for our business, we can't add managers or transfer ownership either, getting errors too! for the last 2 months now it hasn't been working. I called Google + and spoke to a Rep who said they are having bug issues with this and are trying to get it fixed. That was 3 weeks ago, still no fix.

Interestingly enough, you can build video games in SketchUp using the Ruby API and web dialogs. Here's a great presentation that our pal +Scott Lininger put together a few years back at Google I/O...

My colleague +Alexandra Bowen came across this incredible video of video of a Japanese craftsman in action.Watching this guy in action inspired a pretty incredible #SketchUp   model (, and also just brings a nice sense of calm to my morning.

Oh boy. Today, I'm scratching my head: why is there a session called "Bye Bye SketchUp" at #AU2015? (

I work for the SketchUp team in Boulder, Colorado. We design #SketchUp to help people be creative, work quickly and intuitively, and be more productive.

Apparently, #Autodesk designs #FormIt to convince people to stop using SketchUp?

I'm heading into my 5th year on the SketchUp team. I work in marketing and I've never (ever*) told someone not to use another piece of software. Designers use all sorts of tools for all sorts of reasons. It's fun to learn more about what people do, and try to understand if SketchUp can help them be more successful.

I've tried to learn FormIt several times. I think it's fine (I mean, I don't think it's that much fun and I can't really figure out how to orbit), but obviously, I'm biased.

If you use SketchUp a lot; I'd encourage you to give FormIt a try. Please reply to this thread and let me know what you think. And hey, if it's good for you, I guess that's... well, good for you, right? Honestly, that's what our team in Boulder is all about: helping you create amazing work that you're incredibly proud of. Thanks for letting us know what we can do better!

I've worked on some fun projects at +SketchUp, but this is one of my favorites because I got to know this great guy, Steve Oles.

Exploring the 3D world and riding bikes in the real one.
I manage marketing and community programs at SketchUp, I love interacting with creative people and learning more about how they use design and share the projects they care about.

Along those lines, I try to post interesting stories and examples of creativity and awesomeness from the web, and I hope you'll share your own with me. 

I also happen to be a huge bike nerd, so I post a lot about cycling too.

I've worked with Kira for almost three years now. I really appreciate how she tailors each of our sessions to where my body happens to be in a given week, sporting goals I might have, or even my emotional state. Her studio is an environment that's easy relax and open up in, and she recently started pairing massage with short meditations. It's a great combo, that Kira is uniquely suited to provide. Best of all: incentives for biking to appointments!
