  • SketchUp 2016 empowers the users to utilize 3D Warehouse models as reference objects in any project. Initially download a model out of 3D Warehouse and load it again to do up amendments to every sample of that component.
  • Get a revised ‘Generate Report’ tool for a greater control of the information that SketchUp Pro exports from models as well as arrangement of the information.
  • LayOut’s reference objects can be handled via web. As a result LayOut projects can referenced and recreate files which are amassed and synchronized with services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Trimble Connect Sync.
  • With the new API called extension ecosystem, the developers are allowed to produce & customize layout files from SketchUp models.

  • The inference engine in sketchup 2016 is significantly revised for instant and perfect modeling. The sketchup’s workflow is streamlined with the sharper inferencing and locking.
  • The floating utility dialogs in sketchup 2016 is also revamped (Styles, Scenes, Components, etc.) with the intention that these are correctly accumulated inside adaptable, totally collapsible trays.
  • The default material libraries inside sketchup 2016 are completely revised with brand new textures and reforming categories. Press ‘B’ and go wild.
  • LayOut dimensions are reformed with the new ‘small dimension’ leaders to confirm that text not at all gets stuck with arrows or extension lines, and all the dimensions always encompass room to expand for managing limited spaces.
  • LayOut’s layers are also revised. At the time of grouping objects over layers, drawing objects on shared layers, or unearthing the bottom of a stacked viewport, the new layers function in a better manner.
