Editors' Review

+

SketchUp gives you the tools to create all kinds of 3D images and designs, from woodworking blueprints to urban planning designs. With multiple template options and an intuitive interface, this program lets you direct all of your energy into creating and not into fumbling through complicated menu options.

Pros

Template variety: No matter what kind of design you're looking to create, you'll likely find just the right template in this program. There are options for Construction Documentation, Landscape Architecture, Interior and Production Design, 3D Printing, and more. Additionally, each type of template lets you choose the system of measurement you'd like to use and on what scale.

Help options: This program can do a lot, and there are a lot of different resources in place to help you access all of its features. Depending on your experience level and the way you like to learn, you can make use of Video Tutorials, Self-paced Tutorials, a Getting Started Guide, Quick Reference Cards, or other Help options.

Cons

Time to learn: Because there is so much to learn, though, it can take some time to get the hang of using this program effectively. Beginners to design programs will likely take longer than users who already have some experience working with similar software; but few people will be able to jump right in and get results immediately.

Bottom Line

SketchUp is a smooth and efficient free program that provides a lot of functionality to facilitate all kinds of designing. Its plentiful Help resources make it accessible to even the most inexperienced users, but it does take some time to get the hang of all of the features the program provides.

    "No OBJ Support"

    June 21, 2014   |   By KingMango

    Version: SketchUp 14.1.1282

    Pros

    Don't know. I need OBJ support so I haven't used it

    Cons

    No OBJ import

    Summary

    I wanted to use this program as a go-between for Maya and NifSkope. NifSkeope prefers to import 3ds rather than OBJ format. I model in Maya. Nifskope can import OBJ or 3ds to replace mesh data. I saw that sketchup handled 3ds format and installed it just assuming that I could export an OBJ from Maya, import it to Sketchup and then export a 3ds. I'm giving a two star review because I think it is a mistake for them to overlook what is still a very relevant (if admittedly very dated and limited) file format.

    What's new in version 14.1.1282
    • Fixed the File > Generate Report functionality which was failing to generate a report.
    • Fixed a "Callback function" error that could occur when a single non-component (or non-group) entity was selected and Component Options dialog was opened.
    • Fixed the Component Browser search box to no longer show the text "Is:downloadable" when paging through search results.
    • Fixed an issue where shadows did not update properly when switching between scenes in models where scene transitions were turned off and the "Shadow setting" Property to Save was unchecked.
    • Changed the status bar text for the Paint tool to fix some text that was incorrect.
    • Windows: fixed an issue where the units displayed in the model were not always correct after changing them in Model Info > Units. This issue showed up when viewing the dimensions of materials and when selecting arc, curve and circle entities.
