The project is moving along. Henry took several photos. They are posted on the Gallery under "Blue Monarch Project". Looks like Sketchup was pretty much on target.

Just got to learn how to use that program! Seems to be a useful and flexible program. :geek:

When I got asked to provide a detailed plan for the pavilion at the Fair, I used sketchup to provide it. That's what we ultimately built to and it worked out OK. Sketchup was pretty wild back then but the sketches were pretty helpful and the pavilion is still standing. Believe it or not, that was when I was Publicity chairman in 2003.

Sure looks like a great job by all. I was going to try sketchup again a couple of weeks ago and after I downloaded it, it would not run with the video card I have. Not sure what changed from the older version that I could run but gave up.

I wonder why the video card wouldn't handle it Sid. My laptop -- which is notorious for not being a good video machine -- handles it; not as fast as the desktop but workable. I wonder if something went wrong with the download.

Maybe I downloaded the wrong one. Which Sketch up do you have, I see several different ones?

I have Sketchup Make for windows. I have no idea what 'make' means in this context.

Well I downloaded that one and get the same error.

The following errors were found when launching SketchUp:

- Hardware acceleration is unsupported or has been disabled on your graphics card. SketchUp requires that you use a hardware accelerated graphics card.

Unfortunately, these errors will prevent SketchUp from running. Updating your graphics card drivers might fix the problem.

See this Help Center article for more information.

That pretty much puts a nail into that coffin Sid. I guess you can fiddle with a driver update but it doesn't sound good to me. Maybe someone else has an idea.
