>The Blender site has tutorials.

I was trying to follow their step by step series where you can download a pdf with screenshots

since I was using the raw install without any user preferences tweaks etc nothing worked like the pdf said except "open blender and delete default object"

Im going to persist with sketchup for a while

Don't forget to pickup a copy of 3DArtist and 3DWorld magazine at your bookstore. Lots of examples and techniques and videos using various 3D programs. Some of the programs are free versions provided on the DVD for Mac and PC.

I figured out how to make my basic zeppelin shape in google sketchup .... simple once I ignored what I had learnt in the tutorials and went with my instincts .... all i really needed to know in the end was the scaling function and that it works on edges just like the old "anim8or" 3D program I learnt years ago

that learning hurdle out of the way, hopefully sometime soon I'll be able to start posting worth looking at images of traveller stuff here

finished my first model .... the "Metal" freighter from 2300AD which is pretty clean lined in the sketch

havent gotten to the texturing etc lessons so the colors are pretty basic

starting on the thorez courier also from 2300 since its got some interesting overlapping compound shapes I'm keen to learn

I'll edit a link in here once I get them into the art gallery

Anyone know how to use google sketchup ?

Specifically how do I add textures other than the standard materials (which Ive done) eg a company logo or scorch marks to my models ?

I do not know anything about google sketchup but I did see this in Bing.

Check the second post.

1: get them into PNG's.
2: copy the face you're placing it upon off to the side.
3: import the PNG, placing it on the copy of the face.
4: Trim the excess
5: move it onto the original face.
