"Great for beginners! Takes a little practice though."
Its free and you can always find helpful video tutorials online (google SketchUp site and Youtube).
Its fun and easy to use once you know what the tools do and how to use them.
It doesn't seem to be able to export images to order programs.
Some features of the move tool are hard to use (maybe it's just me and I need more practice)
It's great! Try it! Go ahead and experiment on new stuff.
