    • There isn’t a Mac “variation”. Like SketchUp, “Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp” works on both PCs and Macs. The only caution is to use Adobe Reader on the Mac, the video content doesn’t work if you open the book in “Preview” on a Mac.

    • That is the price if you want it on disc. You can also get it on disc for $34.95 for the download version.

      If you think $7.10 is a lot of money for shipping, I agree, but that is my cost for the stamp.

  19. Just downloaded this yesterday. Thanks, well worth the cost… I’ve installed the latest version of Acrobat Reader on my MacBook Pro and it’s working well, but I’m having to move and resize pages a bit to cope with my 13″ screen.

    But for us iPad users, the videos play using ‘Documents 5’ by Readdle, which is great! The web links open within the App, which has its own browser, and these can be bookmarked for future reference… All chapters and headings are accessible, via ‘outlines’ and you can add your own bookmarks and highlight text with yellow marker (or the digital equivalent, anyway). 😉

    I use this App to keep all my manuals in, on my iPad and am wrapt as it means I can have a ‘local’ copy rather than access it via the interweb cloudy thing 😉 I’m more than happy using it for this resource.

    I imported the manual into Documents 5 from iCloud, where I had it stored via another App I use, FileBrowser, but using DropBox or OneDrive or GoogleDrive or even a local network connection, directly off your Mac or PC works. This App connects to pretty much everything – if you have an iCloud enabled App on you iPad, Documents 5 can usually open the iCloud App’s documents to view… Don’t mean to sound like an advertisement but it is awesome!

    Finally a comment about PDF Expert 5. I don’t have it, but it allows you to sign and annotate documents, amongst other features. It is a PDF App. Documents 5 is a Documents App, by the same company (Readdle) and allows you to do so much more with any document, including PDF’s. I either scan (via a ScanSnap iX100) or save online manuals or web pages on pretty much all of my many and varied interests in it…

    Hope this helps… And genuine thanks for the SketchUp resource 🙂

  23. In December 2015 I purchased from Rockler “SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers”, The Basics. Last week I signed up for Carl Stammerjohn’s class at Cerritos. Is this the same as what he’s asking us to purchase?
    Thanks, John Waltemeyer

    • They are not the same, in spite of the similarities of the titles.

      In June of 2010 I published the original version of “Woodworker’s Guide to Google SketchUp”, which is in PDF format with embedded videos within the 200+ pages illustrated text. It was the first publication in any format on the topic of using SketchUp for designing and planning woodworking projects. Several months later, Taunton Press, publishers of Fine Woodworking magazine released a book with the title “Google SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers” and over the next few years several videos with the same title. Google has since sold SketchUp to Trimble so in my revised version of “Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp” the reference to Google was removed. The Taunton products have also removed their references to Google.

      It is easy to see why readers would be confused. This is also confusing to search engines and I believe that is the reason for the similarity. Taunton isn’t the only publisher to engage in this practice, F+W, publishers of Popular Woodworking (and my former employer) recently released a paperback book titled “SketchUp – A Design Guide for Woodworkers”. The obvious question is this; “If you’re proud of your product, why wouldn’t you give it a distinctive title so as not to confuse the audience”.

  24. My original version has stopped working since I installed Win 10. I would like an updated version on disk. Also, can I access the Trimble graphics with the new version? thanks Ed

    • Hi Ed,

      I’m not sure what the issue is with Windows 10, you might need to update your Adobe Acrobat Reader to the latest version. Not sure what you mead by “Trimble graphics”. There is a “Trimble Connect” that can be used with the latest version of SketchUp. I’m sending you a link to the previous purchaser’s discount via e-mail

  32. What about using Sketchup 2016 on a MacBook Pro? In the past, Sketchup has not worked well on a MacBook. Would like to take another run at using Sketchup, and want to buy your book, but am uncertain about using on my MacBook Pro.

    • One of the big accomplishments of SketchUp 2016 is compatibility with the latest Mac OS as well as Windows 10. You should be in fine shape, at least until Apple and Microsoft decide to improve things.
