Learn to use the Tape Measure tool

Over the past few weeks I have been doing posts suggested by my Twitter friends.  Corey Klassesn mentioned that he learned about the "Unglue" feature of Sketchup, so I did a post about that.  Last week, my friend Arne Salvesen asked me a question on Twitter about the Tape Measure tool.  I thought today would be a great time to do a little video on just that topic.  I use the Tape Measure tool constantly while modeling in Sketchup.  In it's basic form, it works just like any old tape measure.  You can also use it to draw construction lines too.  I use this feature to lay out windows, doors, and cabinets from my field dimensions.
