What is SketchUp?
SketchUp is a deceptively simple, amazingly powerful tool for creating, viewing, and modifying 3D ideas quickly and easily. SketchUp was developed to combine the elegance and spontaneity of pencil sketching with the speed and flexibility of todays digital media.
We are finding that a lot of architects use Sketchup in combination with VectorWorks and Autocad Lt.
Available in English, Français, Deutsch, italiano, español.
Sketchup Pricing Change
Note that from v2013 onwards subscription and support is mandatory for the first year as part of the SketchUp pricing model. Choose one or tow year subs.
Developed for the conceptual stages of design, this powerful yet easy-to-learn software allows for quick and easy 3D form creation, the result is an interface that supports a dynamic, creative exploration of 3D form, material and light.
SketchUp Pro combines a compact yet robust tool-set with an intelligent guidance system that streamlines the 3D drawing process
Introducing Extension Warehouse
What if adding new extensions to SketchUp was as easy as installing an app on
your smartphone? In 2013, we’ve made it dead simple to turn SketchUp into
exactly what you need it to be. Need a special tool? There’s an excellent
chance someone’s already built it. Now you can research, download and install
extensions without ever having to leave SketchUp. Every useful extension in
one place—that’s the all-new Extension Warehouse.
Drawing a sectional view? Now you can fill shapes in LayOut with hatching and
other patterns. Choose from a large library of standards—construction
materials, geometric tiles, dot screens—or create your own favorites. Patterns
can be rotated, scaled or used as-is. You can even combine Pattern Fills with
solid colors to create an endless number of variations.
You know how SketchUp lets you easily create multiple copies of an object with
your keyboard? Those are called arrays, and now LayOut lets you make them,
too. Move a copy, type how many copies you want, type the letter ‘x’ and
Enter. Presto! Presto! Presto! Presto! Presto! Copying is fun.
Speedier Vector Rendering
When you need to print a drawing really big, sometimes it’s helpful to
vector-render your SketchUp model views. Doing so makes lines look smooth and
reduces wait times for all but the most complex models. In the latest version
of LayOut, vector rendering is faster than it’s ever been.
Every time you zoom, pan or move an entity on the page, LayOut has to re-draw
the picture you see on your screen. For this version, we massaged the code so
there’s a noticeable improvement in the speed at which this happens. LayOut
should feel snappier, especially as your document gets more complex.
Numbered Pages in the Pages panel
Another small but incredibly useful tweak: LayOut’s Pages panel now displays
page numbers, which makes it easier to print and export portions of your
Curved Label Leader Lines
Creating a jauntily curved callout line for a label used to be a five-step,
Click. Click. Tool switch. Double-click. Click-drag-with-a-modifier-key.
In the latest version of LayOut, curving a label line goes like this:
Isn’t progress something?
Ask the guy with the 86 foot ceiling if readable dimensions are important.
It’s a little thing, but we added dashes to LayOut’s dimension labels to make
them easier to read.
Smarter Toolbars in Windows
It used to be that the toolbars for all of your delicious plugins would move
around your screen between SketchUp sessions. We heard that drove you crazy,
so we re-engineered our Windows UI to make things a whole lot better. In 2013,
you can even drag native tool icons between toolbars. Make SketchUp look the
way you want it to.
Exporting high-quality animations from SketchUp 2013 is easier than ever.
Using the default settings yields HD videos at 720p, encoded in any of the
three most popular, modern formats: H.264, AVI and WebM. Picture quality is
much better, and file sizes are smaller as well.
