Do great work in SketchUp Pro 2018
Just like components, section planes have names and symbols, making them
easy to find, organize, and edit in Outliner. Now, it’s easy to access and manage
sections whenever you need to.
Filled Section Cuts
Filled Section Cuts are now baked into SketchUp Pro. Select a color for your
fills via the Styles dialogue and bake them into templates.
We improved performance for models that use section planes to
hide large amounts of geometry. The more geometry you section off,
the more you’ll benefit!
Make Better Drawings
Scaled Vector Drawing
Need to add linework that’s not in your model? Create a scaled
drawing in LayOut and sketch over a 3D model to flesh out your
project. Or draw details to scale from scratch.
Import a DWG into LayOut and find illustrations already scaled to
paper size. Now SketchUp projects can live side by side with CAD
linework and take advantage of DWG libraries everywhere.
Inferencing, chamfering and filleting, arcs, offset arrays, selections:
LayOut is even better at everything you need to draw details or create
beautiful illustrations at scale.
We’re introducing Advanced Attribute fields for a component’s Price,
Size, URL, Type, Status, and Owner. So now it’s even easier to embed
projectswith useful information.
Generate Report now aggregates component data so you can do things
like configure reports to sum parts and quantities for schedules
and cutlists, or create detailed estimates by adding up prices
by layer. It’s time to crunch model data!
BIM works best when information moves freely between applications. You can rely on IFC in SketchUp to transfer the attributes you assign and manipulate in projects.
