What’s new for SketchUp in 2019?
SketchUp Pro 2019 is here, it’s faster and more powerful than ever, with bug fixes, system improvements, and some shiny new features.
Here are a few of the highlights:
SketchUp Pro 2019 for Desktop
You'll notice an upgrade to your welcome window where you can easily find recent projects and lots of helpful learning content.
Brand new for 2019, SketchUp Pro & LayOut: Layers now have dashes. A much-anticipated feature, dashed lines allow you to simplify your drawings with effective drawing communication. Learn how to use dashed lines and make your drawings communicate more effectively.
The Tape Measure tool got a facelift this year. Now you can see measurement info right where you’re modeling. Model more accurately -- and more efficiently -- right where you’re working.
In both SketchUp and LayOut we have made improvements to our .dwg import and export feature. Including but not limited to support for AutoCAD 2018 file format, increased precision and stability. We added the ability to import and export with materials for better BIM interoperability and workflows using the .dwg format.
The handshake between SketchUp and LayOut has improved by creating an “Export for SketchUp” feature for our .dwg exporter that sends all LayOut entities along with any SketchUp viewport data to the model space. Now any filled shape created in LayOut will be passed over to SketchUp as face ready to be Push/Pull’d. So now, SketchUp & LayOut work even better together.
New for 2019, LayOut will let you know which files are already open so you’re not creating multiple versions. Looks like someone’s projects just got a little bit smarter.
Also new this year, an easy way to learn the basics of LayOut. It’s time to go 2D: What are you waiting for?
SketchUp Pro 2019/Studio for Students is a new subscription based version of Sketchup Pro 2019 with additional extra functionality.
With SketchUp Pro 2019/Studio for Students you get a full version of the Sketchup Pro 2019 desktop application plus
SketchUp Viewer for iOS/Android
SketchUp Viewer for Mobile opens models from 3D Warehouse, Trimble Connect or other online storage apps. View and present models with the familiar orbit, pan, and zoom tools. The viewer also supports scenes, fly-through animations, section planes, layer visibility, X-Ray, and edge and face styles.
AR features enable users to merge 3D models with real-world context; allowing them to reimagine room layouts, evaluate proposals in context or review projects as they would a scale model.
SketchUp Viewers for XR (AR/VR)
Subscribers to SketchUp Studio for Students will have access to our full range of viewers for mixed reality devices: Microsoft HoloLens and Windows Mixed Reality devices; and virtual reality devices: Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Other XR platforms are in development.
With SketchUp XR Viewers, users can immerse themselves in a project at 1:1 scale to experience, understand or resolve complex spatial dynamics. Cycling through scenes within a model facilitates rapid design decisions and can show construction sequencing. Teams may collaborate via live audio; virtual avatars represent a colleague’s point of view, allowing them to be more easily guided. Tools such as Tape Measure and Entity Info provide insights when needed. On AR devices, alignment with real-world reference points allows digital models to be placed in-situ.
SketchUp for Web
Subscribers to SketchUp Studio for Students are given access to the premium features of SketchUp’s browser-based modeller. Without support for extensions, SketchUp for Web is not for the true power user—but the core modelling tools are available on any device. With Trimble Connect and SketchUp for Web, a user isn’t required to carry their hardware everywhere they go to showcase conceptual designs to a client.
The premium web modeller includes the following features that are not available in SketchUp Free: Export to DWG/DXF/PDF/TIF/3DS/FBX/OBJ/XSI, Outliner, Solid Tools, and custom styles/materials.
Sefaira for SketchUp provides real-time energy and daylighting analysis within SketchUp, enabling architects to drive design decisions like form, orientation and facade design with real-time feedback
Trimble Connect for Business
Trimble Connect is a cloud storage and collaboration platform accessible via desktop, mobile, web and mixed reality devices. It allows users to share and access project information anywhere, with collaboration tools including 3D markup, task assignment and clash checking. Connect supports Autodesk, Tekla, and SketchUp file formats, plus point clouds, PDF, images, IFC, Microsoft Office files and more for collaboration across disparate teams and functions.
The Trimble Connect app for XR (HoloLens and MagicLeap) allows users to experience models in augmented reality in tabletop mode or at 1:1 scale; models can be aligned with real-world reference points for an immersive experience.
Better than textbooks: Sketchup's official learning hub is here. SketchUp-built courses, all created by Sketchup's in-house team, make learning SketchUp convenient and simple. And they’re always making more!
