In this sketchup tutorial you’ll learn how to embed sketchup models (thumbnails, or 3d  widgets) into your portfolio website.  Now, more than ever, you have the ability to show off every part of your designs.

If you’re anything like me, you hate to see your designs get lost the shuffle.  I couldn’t tell you how many awesome projects I had to weed out of my portfolio in order to show things that were “more practical”.  That’s exactly why creating your own portfolio website is so awesome. You don’t have to make that choice anymore, now you can have all your projects in one spot and let the viewers decide what they want to see!
