In this SketchUp Talk episode, we talk DIY. What is DIY? We believe it is best described as a movement or a culture. Normally, we talk about well-defined industries and this topic is a little different. At the very core of SketchUp is the idea of DIY - even from the very beginning of SketchUp’s history. Our guests on this episode are Jen and Ana from Spruc’d, the first and only global marketplace for premium project plans. We talk about how they fit into this ever-expanding DIY movement.   Important links: SketchUp and DIY from the beginning: Spruc’d website: WorkbenchCon: Episode: 3D Warehouse: Community Spotlight with KB Videography - DIY Playground:
