Sketch-Up Tips
Since a lot of us have started using Sketch-up I thought we should have a thread to exchange tips in. :D

1) Don't start doing anything in it if you are supposed to leave or do anything anytime soon - that thing's addictive!

2) The measuring tool is your friend - guidelines will save you a lot of hassle positioning things.

So, what are some of your tips?
