Reply to "3D printing, the future?"

Disclaimer: It's HO and a UK-prototype channel...

YouTuber 'Sam's Trains' documented his experience with getting a 3D printer and learning to build various pieces of (UK-inspired) rolling stock of increasing sophistication, (by his own admission, not nitpicker-grade modeling). A significant part of these videos (and the entirety of the fifth one) is narrating the building of the 3d models in reiatively simple CAD applications like the web-app version of SketchUp (the...only free version unless you use the 2017 SketchUp Make)

As of this writing he has yet to put all those videos in the playlist he created for them (i left a comment on his most recent video asking if he noticed this), so I tried to present them in the order released--had he populated his 3d printing playlist I would have just linked to that, so apologies in advance for the string of embeds...

Binge-watching all seven videos will take about 4 hours 40-ish minutes, so maybe bookmark the post and watch them over the course of a few days if you find the process interesting.

Below, a tutorial video narrating the build of a basic gondola in SketchUp:
