As you know I have developed numerous notes on modeling in SketchUp. SketchUp is a very powerful and flexible 3D modeling tool. For this exercise I looked at how to model a toy with a few different parts and how these parts would attach together. As you might already know SketchUp is not a parametric modeling package therefore assembling parts (components) together becomes a little more difficult.
The notes have been developed in a logical order so that each component fits into the correct position. I explain some of the helpful features of SketchUp when creating or selecting geometry. Have go and see what you think. Click here
