In this lesson, we’re going to gain more SketchUp power by manipulating objects.

• The Scale tool lets you enlarge and reduce objects as you like. This is a useful tool in case you want to make changes to an object’s size at any time.
• The Follow-Me tool lets you move 2D shapes along paths you’ve specified to create 3D shapes. It’s very cool to watch.
