    Some critism here. I like that you made a video but you talk WAY to fast. Remember, you talk to someone who hasnt done this before and they, and I, have to pause, rewind look around the screen to find what you are talking about. a 13 minute video can take an hour to watch. I had to find another vidoe because you glanced over various settings like snapping and tool (not telling where to find that). Just my thoughts
