The folks at SketchUp take pains to keep new versions looking like, and compatible with, previous versions. In previous versions of SketchUp (and the free version of SketchUp 8) you can do it, but it is a little involved and time consuming.
I have not seen mentioned if the classes are based on the free version of sketchup of the purchased version.
My live classes (as well as my videos and PDF book) are all based on the free version of SketchUp.
If you like to include details of joinery in your models, this may be the feature to tip the scales in favor of upgrading to SketchUp Pro. In April, I’ll be teaching for the first time at Annapolis Woodworks, in Annapolis, Maryland, with a weekend workshop on SketchUp, April 21-22. In August, I’ll be returning to the Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Franklin, Indiana for a week-long SketchUp class, August 27-31. The big differences are in the types of files you can import and export, and the addition of some solid modeling tools in SketchUp Pro 8.
For woodworkers using the free version of SketchUp 7, the changes are minimal, but there are some nice enhancements. SketchUp looks at the geometry of the two components, and subtracts the area that intersects from one component to the other.
