SketchUp21.0.338

20 November 2020

Create 3D design concepts.

Overview

SketchUp is an easy-to-learn 3D modeling program that enables you to explore the world in 3D. With just a few simple tools, you can create 3D models of houses, sheds, decks, home additions, woodworking projects - even space ships.

Note: SketchUp is free for personal use. Pro version can be found here.

What's new in SketchUp

Version 21.0.338:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.13 or later

Tag Folders

We are still keen to make it easier for people who maintain models using large and complex lists of tags and scenes. In this release, you can organize multiple tags into Tag Folders and control the visibility of folders per scene. Additionally, folders can expand and collapse, making it easier to scan your tag structure and find the tags you need.

Tag filtering

A long time coming, we're happy to introduce filtering in SketchUp's Tags panel. We hope this makes it a lot easier to zero in on specific tags. You can also use filtering when creating tag folders: filter down to a prefix or naming convention, choose Select All in the Tag Details menu, and hit the Add Tag Folder button.

You can also use keyboard selection modifiers to select multiple folders (or tags) and set their visibility all at once. To make a custom selection, use the CTRL (Command on Mac) and Shift keys to select desired tags and folders. With a tag selection in place, click the visibility icon for any tag or folder in your selection: the entire selection will respect your visibility change.

Live Component Configuration

Live Components are a new breed of parametrically configurable objects, and in this release you can control them in SketchUp.

Hi there. I've installed the SketchUp on my Mac, but it require a license to use. I'm using Mac OS Catalina. Then, I've installed SketchUp Pro 2020. Am I need to uninstall it? Does exist a free version for non comercial purpose?

It's 2020. So what's still free? You can use the web-only version called SketchUp Free. You have to sign in online to use it. Otherwise you've got to pay for a SUBSCRIPTION: • SketchUp Shop is also web-only and costs $119/yr, designing for personal use. • SketchUp Pro is both for desktop and web at $299/yr, designing for professional use.

This friendly program makes it very easy to make 3D shapes. It takes some practice to make complex models and it is very easy to damage a part of your model but the results are very rewarding.
There is a free (Make) version without time limit. The current version is 17.2.2554

Very good intuitive modeling program. But not set up for stand-alone professional use.We use VectorWorks; it does SketchUp like modeling along with everything else a professional CAD program should do. Clients send us SketchUp drawings sometimes and they can be helpful; they can be imported into VectorWorks. Vectorworks evolved from MiniCad which was an early Cad program for Mac.

Let's sort out the situation: 1) SketchUp v8 is STILL available for free. You will find it here: http://www.sketchup.com/intl/en/download/ 2) SketchUp v13 is ACTUALLY SketchUp PRO. The PRO version is a TRIAL with 8 hours of unlimited use before it turns into a pumpkin. Then you have to PAY for it. You can find it at the link MU provides here, as well as at the Download page linked above. IOW: No panic required. If you don't want the shareware PRO version, then get version 8, which is freeware.

This latest 2013 version is not free anymore. After update it asks for a license or run as a time trial. Reverted immediately to previous version.

According to the licence: "By installing the Software, you agree to automatically request and receive Updates." Why exactly is this clause necessary?

Why would either this app, or 'SweetHome' need access to our system?

I created a drawing of a house plan in Sweet Home 3d (a free app) some time ago and wanted to see how well SketchUp handled it. The drawing has walls, windows, doors, some furniture, and other ditties. I wanted to see if SketchUp could put a roof on the house but I never got that far. It didn't crash. I exported the file from Sweet Home 3D as a .obj file (the only option you have) and imported this file into Cheetah3D (an awesome app). I then exported it from Cheetah3D as a .3ds file. SketchUp did not import a .3ds file properly at all. So, I exported the file from Cheetah3D to a .dxf file which SketchUp did import albeit very slowly. The resulting drawing was tiny in scale. This is not right. I need accurate dimensions. The resulting file had over 250,000 entities - what did this thing do, take every itty bitty line and make it an entity? As a result, moving around is EXTREMELY slow - zooming and panning tested my patience. I did draw a few things but lost interest in using it because it's performance on this file was so bad. SketchUp can be used for *simple* drawings containing small numbers of objects and that's about it. It is like 3D electronic graph paper and it might serve your needs so give it a try but don't be surprised if it starts to balk at higher levels of complexity.
