Not only does Alex list them; he also provides a good, brief description of what each is for. There are even a handful of step-by-step tutorials for workflows that require working between multiple extensions. Photo-realistic rendering Admit it: If you're not already an avid renderer, you've at least thought about how nice it would be to master that particular skill.
But where to start? There's never been more choice in renderers, and everyone knows that rendering is a lot more complicated than just clicking a button and waiting a few hours. The settings, presets, lighting environments, and other widgets that go along with making a halfway decent rendering require an indecent amount of background knowledge. It's half science and half craft. With Alex's book in hand, we all might finally have a shot at learning this stuff.
Another thing we should mention: Here, Alex has surveyed some of the more popular digital fabrication techniques -- 3D printing, CNC, laser cutting, even 2D printing! This section is only about 30 pages long, but Alex gets remarkably hands-on around some important workflows. For example…. Scripting Here's where things get a little wacky.
When we saw that Alex intended to include an entire section on scripting, we thought, "Ruby for designers? Did Alex mix up his medications?
In teaching the fundamentals of Ruby scripting, Alex intelligently focuses on using scripts to generate forms that are otherwise arduous to model in SketchUp. He doesn't assume you want to create entire standalone extensions; this is really just about using the power of algorithms to make stuff when you can't think of any other way to do it. The material is by no means easy, but Alex deserves a world of credit for making it as easy as possible. We recommend this book without hesitation to anyone who really wants to be able to make SketchUp do everything it's capable of doing.
It's clearly written, well-illustrated, and comprehensive. Buy this book and take the first step toward becoming a more useful SketchUp person.
