I come from using SketchUp but I switched to Linux and Google only offers versions for Windows and Mac. Of course I could have tried wine but I thought this was a good opportunity to switch to a real open source solution.
On my way of getting into the program I found a lot of video tutorials but they all were rather complicated or dedicated to a more advanced topic. I was missing a guide that gets you quickly into using the basic functions. Thus I rather needed some time to create my first 3D model. As a consequence I decided to make my own beginners video that is more straight to the point.
The feedback I got so far is so astonishing positive that I dare to share it here. May it be of help for somebody.
