SketchUp Tutorial

Sketchup team has just released a new version of sketchup i.e. SketchUp Pro 2018. This latest version of sketchup contains some significant enhancements for controlling section planes, eliciting model data into aggregated reports for takeoffs, and producing superior drawings out of your SketchUp models.

Now, in place of downloadable free make version of sketup, there will be new version called sketchup free, a version of my sketchup web based app.

Smarter Sections – It is divided into the following parts

Name Sections – Similar to components, section planes contain names and symbols, making them easily locatable, organize, and edit in Outliner. Now, it becomes simpler to get and handle sections as per your requirements.

Filled Section Cuts - These are now baked into SketchUp Pro. Choose a color for your fills through the Styles dialogue and bake them into templates.

Fast Sections – The functionality of models which apply section planes to cover huge amounts of geometry. The more geometry you section off, you will be benefitted more.

Produce superior drawings

Scaled Vector Drawing: If it is required to include linework that is not present in your model, just make a scaled drawing in LayOut and sketch over a 3D model to boost your project. Alternatively, draw from details to scale from the ground up directly in LayOut.

DWG Import: Import a DWG into LayOut and locate illustrations already scaled to paper size. Now SketchUp projects exist alongside with CAD linework and use DWG libraries all over.

Superior Drawing: Create sketches of everything like Inferencing, chamfering and filleting, arcs, offset arrays in detail. Also produce nice illustrations at scale.
