TIG has developed CADup, a useful plugin for sketchup. The sketchup users can use this plugin to generate line drawings of views concerning a group/component-instance ready that can be applied in a cad program later on.
The users can export the new collection to an individual SKP by right clicking and selecting ‘save-as’ and consequently a DWG or DXF for applying in a CAD program.
The plugin is best suited for an elementary SKP in order that the intersections of entities liable for carrying out the composite geometry calculations, are not adjusted through other irrelevant entities [even if they might be ‘hidden’].
Watch the following live demo of this sketchup plugin.
