Joe Zeh, an accomplished lifelong woodworker, is an electrical engineer with more than 35 years experience in the computer and graphics industry, ranging from computer design to executive management. He retired as Vice President & General Manager, Desktop Graphics Development at ATI Technologies Inc, now acquired by AMD. Joe was introduced to SketchUp when he read a Fine Woodworking article titled ‘A Quick Course in SketchUp’ by Tim Killen in December of 2007. He immediately dropped the other 3D drawing applications he used to model his furniture. By mid- 2008 Joe was writing SketchUp tutorials and teaching live courses in his home. While SketchUp was ideally suited for woodworkers, it lacked a few features; but it had an applications programming interface (API) using the Ruby language. Joe set about learning Ruby and began to plug those holes. Shortly after Joe was introduced to Greg through one of Greg’s students. He began teaching SketchUp at Greg’s New England School of Architectural Woodworking (NESAW). That partnership was the beginning of CutList Bridge and CabWriter. Joe continues to teach SketchUp both in video and live courses. He recently published a book titled SketchUp – A Design Guide for Woodworkers. He offers free SketchUp plans and help on his blog.
