I’ve been excited about the latest release of SketchUp Mobile Viewer (available now on iOS and Android) from the moment I got the first developer build that allowed me to view dimensions. In fact, here's the model I created that same day just so I could play around with it!
With SketchUp, we imagined a design tool that would stand out of the way and let designers get about the business of doing their design. A tool that was simple enough to be useful in the way that a pencil and straightedge are useful.
It’s been two years since we first reviewed Architectural Design with SketchUp. Since then, Alex Schreyer (the book’s author) has spoken at 3D Basecamp, authored a few new SketchUp extensions, and sure enough, cooked up a second edition of this comprehensive resource for bending SketchUp to your will.
Moving a component along an inferenced parallel: it’s time to fall in love with inference locking all over again!
If you love SketchUp, there’s a great chance you’ll love LayOut. For those of you familiar with LayOut’s magic, we think you’re really going to like the changes we’ve made for 2016...
For years now, SketchUp users of all skill levels have provided 3D models to the world through 3D Warehouse. We’re continually surprised by the breadth of 3D Warehouse contributions, but for a while now, we’ve been wondering how to help people make good models great.
V-Ray 3 for SketchUp is interactive and significantly faster, taking full advantage of CPU or GPU acceleration. From quick design models to fully detailed and photorealistic scenes, V-Ray 3 is designed to be SketchUp’s most powerful rendering solution.
At SketchUp, we believe every student should have access to intuitive 3D modeling tools that enable creative expression and skill development from a young age. That’s why we are so excited to introduce SketchUp for Schools: SketchUp in the web for any primary and secondary school signed up with Google’s G Suite for Education.
Oh! And did we mention it’s free!?
TL;DR: We recently launched a bunch of new features for 3D Warehouse. Two new features have been added to the model details pages that allow you to browse and download In Model materials and components. You can also browse models that include the component you’ve landed on. Last but not least, we brought back contributors (finally!). Whew, that was the TL;DR version? Keep reading for more details or head over to 3D Warehouse now to check out all the new stuff.
