Hello, nice to meet you all, and especially Rick W and Todd, whom I have admired from afar for years. I am a landscape architect, I model sites and places with SketchUp. I started on SU4pro, some years ago, when I brought the firm I was working for into SU use, by creating protocols for modeling site designs from CAD drawings, and also from sketches. At that time, we used SU for presentations and also for design development. I have moved to my own firm, where I find myself modeling larger places: recently modeled an urban neighborhood, and am now working on an entire watershed, about 12 miles by 3 miles. I recently lost all my e-mails, so I can't remember if it was Rick or Todd who helped me on my neighborhood model. I asked for (and was willing to pay for) a custom ruby, and you gave me a free one! whattaguy!
I am more likely to test or utilize a ruby than write one. But over the years I have surely appreciated the open attitude of SketchUp users. Thanks for creating these forums.
