TRIMBLE SKETCHUP PRO
Hundreds of thousands of professionals in architecture, construction, engineering, commercial interiors, light construction, landscape architecture, kitchen & bath design, urban planning, game design, film & stage, woodworking, and plenty of other fields use SketchUp Pro all the time, every day. It's the all-purpose antidote to complicated, expensive CAD software.
SketchUp users are architects, designers, builders, makers and engineers. They are the people who shape the physical world. They are important, and they deserve great tools because great tools produce great work.
Great tools are ones you look forward to using. They do one thing (or maybe two) really, really well. They let you do what you want without having to figure out how. They help with hard or boring tasks so that you can focus on being creative, or productive, or both. And they are, in their own way, beautiful. SketchUp do their best to make great tools for drawing. For users, drawing is thinking. They draw to explore ideas, to figure things out, to show other people what they mean. They draw because they love it, and because nothing great was ever built that didn't start with a great drawing.
Pipeline 2.0 What matters more than how fast, smoothly, and reliably SketchUp renders your models?
In this release, SketchUp have made major improvements to their graphics pipeline, allowing for performance improvements everywhere you see a .SKP. Now, SketchUp, 3D Warehouse, LayOut, my.SketchUp, and Trimble Connect all render models using the same under-the-hood algorithms, all tuned for buttery 3D orbiting.
See (thru) that? Along with our graphics pipeline overhaul, SketchUp have made big improvements to transparency, which should now render at higher quality and faster too. SketchUp is also now way better at displaying multiple transparencies to provide a more realistic sense of depth across several clear faces. And for good measure, they've added the ability to fine-tune the opacity level in X-ray mode.
High DPI Modelling SketchUp have tuned snapping and inferencing for high definition monitors (like Apple’s Retina Display). Edge weights have also been smart-scaled. You can back away from your screen now…
Smart Offset SketchUp 2017 Offset avoids overlapping and self-intersecting geometry. Clean offsets, every time you hit ‘F’ (even in LayOut!)
Perpendicular Face Inferencing Have you mastered parallel inferencing? SketchUp added a ‘Perpendicular to Face’ inference. Hover a face; SketchUp will helpfully snap to its perpendicular.
Righteous Rectangles Rectangle tools now utilise the arrow-key axis-locking (just like Circle and Polygon tools). Psst… find a Square or Golden Section; hold shift to lock that in too!
3D for every-cone In SketchUp 2017, introduces customisation for the colours that display SketchUp’s axes and inferencing. This will assist people with any degree of colour blindness, allowing tweaks to these important colour schemes to make SketchUp and LayOut work just right.
Introducing... Tables Great documents often feature important information, so SketchUp built Tables, a great way to manage spreadsheets in LayOut. Create a Table from scratch, or import a .CSV or Excel file. Tables behave just like other spreadsheets: edit text, style cells, modify columns and rows… you get the gist. LayOut references your original spreadsheet, so updating every Table in your document is as simple as… click!
One DWG Previously, a ten page LayOut file would export as ten separate .dwg’s. Now you’ll get just one .dwg with ten separate tabs for each page.
Native Entities In the old days, LayOut entities like dimensions, clipping masks, and labels would explode into raw geometry upon export. Now, they’ll import smartly into AutoCAD and behave just as expected.
Smart Scaling LayOut exports are now smart enough to self scale for paper size or model space. Drawing entities like labels and, and polygons scales to paper size. Model linework scales to model space. Voilà!
Colour by Layer SketchUp 2017 adds an often-requested ‘Colour-by-Layer’ option to CAD exports, so all entities on a given layer may export as one colour. By default, black linework exports so that it renders as black on a white background and white on a black background.
A new utility, Extension Manager is a one-look view of your SketchUp extensions. From here, it’s easy to toggle on and off custom tools (or uninstall them entirely). Extension Manager also displays an extension’s Digital Signature, the indication it meets our standard for quality and security.
Now, when you make a change to your SketchUp model, any LayOut dimensions associated with the model update to reflect your edit. This possible thanks to a new feature across SketchUp platform called Persistent IDs. These are identifiers for geometry that help SketchUp (and its extensions) manipulate individual entities, like a specific edge or face. Basically, every sliver of your model just got smarter.
