SketchUp Pro 2018 is here. Deliver work you’re incredibly proud of!

Here’s what’s new in 2018…

Smarter Sections: 

Section Planes are essential to architectural composition, so there are some big improvements.

Named Sections​ – Just like components, section planes have names and symbols, making them easy to find, organise, 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 colour for your fills via the Styles dialogue and bake them into templates.

Fast Sections – SketchUp features 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 from details to scale from scratch directly in LayOut

Got BIM?

Ultimately, ‘BIM’ is about using information in your model to make better buildings. The focus is to help users embed and manage information in a SketchUppy way.

Advanced Attributes – SketchUp now features Advanced Attribute fields for a component’s Price, Size, URL, Type, Status, and Owner. So now it’s even easier to embed projects with useful information.
