Trimble introduced SketchUp 2013, a 3d Modeling program for all people who love to model in 3d. It is easy and much powerful than version 8.
For SketchUp 2013, Trimble focused on two things: making LayOut even more powerful, and building an ecosystem that makes it easier for millions of SketchUp modelers to find and use the plugins, add-ons and extensions they need.
Introducing Extension Warehouse
In this new version, you can add any extensions very easily as you install an apps to your iphone. In 2013, Trimble made it dead simple to turn SketchUp into exactly what you need it to be. Need a special tool? There’s an excellent chance someone’s already built it.
Would like to drawing a sectional view? Now you can fill shapes in LayOut with hatching and other patterns. Choose from a large library of standards—construction materials, geometric tiles, dot screens—or create your own favorites. Patterns can be rotated, scaled or used as-is. You can even combine Pattern Fills with solid colors to create an endless number of variations.
You know how SketchUp lets you easily create multiple copies of an object with your keyboard? Those are called arrays, and now LayOut lets you make them, too. Move a copy, type how many copies you want, type the letter ‘x’ and Enter. Presto! Presto! Presto! Presto! Presto! Copying is fun.
Speedier Vector Rendering
When you need to print a drawing really big, sometimes it’s helpful to vector-render your SketchUp model views. Doing so makes lines look smooth and reduces wait times for all but the most complex models. In the latest version of LayOut, vector rendering is faster than it’s ever been.
Faster Screen Redraw
Every time you zoom, pan or move an entity on the page, LayOut has to re-draw the picture you see on your screen. For this version, we massaged the code so there’s a noticeable improvement in the speed at which this happens. LayOut should feel snappier, especially as your document gets more complex.
