SketchUp Introduction #1

I learned how to use some tools in SketchUp, such as the push/pull tool, the rectangle shape tool, the orbit tool, the zoom tool and the pan tool.  The push/pull tool is used to push or pull objects out and or in.  The rectangle tool can make rectangles and squares, the orbit tool lets you turn the screen and see the object from different angles.  The zoom tool lets you zoom in and out on specific things, letting you see it easier.  The pan tool is used to move around, so it's like you are moving and seeing different parts of the object
