This week I'm making a couple board games but before I can make them I'd like to make a couple templates. That way I will be able to use the templates over and over to create more board games in the future. The templates start out here in SketchUp. Creating 2d templates is pretty easy but unfortunately SketchUp doesn't have an excellent way to print or export only what you want. For that I typically use the Snipping Tool in Windows to grab a quick image of what I need. For plans that require higher resolution images I normally use the Export 2D Image tool in SketchUp. Then I open the image in an image editor and work from there. Here are a few of the shortcuts I frequently use:
Ctrl = adds a copy command to the move and rotate commands Q = rotate R = rectangle T = tape measure D = dimension (this is a custom keyboard shortcut I set and is not included by default) M = move Space Bar = selection command Triple Click = when triple clicking a piece of model space geometry it selects everything in model space that is connected to that item Double Click On Component = enters component edit mode G = Turns selected model space geometry into a component CUSTOM SHORTCUTS: H = Hide U = Unhide all D = Dimension
