lo mas util de este programa es la facilidad de aprender a usarlo, las ventajas de diseñar estructuras objetos en 2 y 3er dimencion es una experiencia muy buena para personas que esta comenzando a incursionar en este mundo de diseños de 2 dimensiones y 3 dimensiones
no me disgusta en nada, es una aplicación que la recomendaría siempre a cualquier persona ya que la experiencia que he tenido con esta aplicación es única.
me ayudo a resolver el como poder hacer animaciones para demostrar la estructura de una planta procesadora de Gel para el cabello en uno de mis proyectos universitario lo cual fue llevado a competir en ferias de tecnologías gracias a la presentación se logro entender con mas exactitud como se visualizaría la planta a nivel de estructura en 3 dimensiones
Its easy to use and flexible can be learned within a short period of time just need a little focus from you
also I like how quick conversion of 2D to 3D shapes
there is nothing that I dislike about sketchup
it can be used instead of 3D max
start work on sketchup its the easy way to show up your projects
The possibility of importing and exporting files to and from the most famous program, AutoCAD and the famous Google Earth program (the feature of integrating the project with the project land on the map and sharing images on it and the possibility of importing the project land from the map of the program)
The best part of the SketchUp is the structure of the program is very easy to learn. Even if you did nothing with the tool before once you open it you can easily learn the way to draw and create 3D structures in a very practical way. Also if you are an experienced user the tool allows you to create professional drawing that can also be used in the daily work also. The program also gives you the opportunity that you can export your drawing to the other tools or import the files that you receive from others. The tool also has a great support and community so you can look at the help files or videos if you stuck at something.
If you have experience in the other 3D drawing tools, this tool can be strange for you at the beginning. The sense of drawing and using is a little bit different from others. So you need some time to get familiar.
I recommend every 3D use to give a chance to SketchUp. I am sure it will catch you up and you can not leave it.
The main objective for me when using this tool is the fast and practical usage. When i came up with an idea this tool allows me to create and bring the idea in 3D in a very short time. Then after the initial drawing is created then i start to bring some detail on the table. I love this program because it can help your business in very different ways that if you want a quick drawing or you want a detailed one. This tolls gives you both.
This software allows you to create drawings and graphics and visualize your designs in a 3-dimensional view to add real-life specifications to the models. You can collaborate with your teams in this software environment and share your work with the community. It offers different programs for educational purposes, professional purposes, and a free home-use program for personal preference. It also allows its users to use third-party extensions to increase the efficiency of their work.
It is a very costly software and the user has to renew the yearly subscription every time by paying its very expensive costs. Some of its features do not work while the users’ system is offline. it has no Android and IOS versions that make the users’ work progress confined to his desktop. It lacks some of the architectural tools that require the users to install additional plug-ins and extensions which may be time-consuming.
It provides unlimited cloud drive storage which is helpful for the designers to keep all their data and designs saved.
This platform allows the user to reach the Sketchup models anywhere on their mobile devices with the help of integration with Sketchup Viewer. The User can create any object or model required for their projects using the 3D models’ Library which makes it easier to build 3D as well as 2D designs faster. It provides unlimited cloud drive storage which is helpful for the designers to keep all their data and designs saved.
I use it for interior and architectural design, I love that is so easy to use, but the best part is having the furniture from brand houses to export in the model directly, you can create new materials, new form, new furniture to added to your design. Also you can customize furniture or objects and exported to added to other softwares as ArchiCAD.Then exported to lumion and have amazing renders of your creations.
Maybe the price is a bit expensive if it could be more affordable will be perfect.
Also is not as precise as Revit or ArchiCAD.
It will be awsome if it could have a direct connection to lumion so you don't need to export each time the 3D as collada and then refresh on lumion.
Some products of the Warehouse are not good enough if there could be a certification to know that those products are reviewed or have stars will be great.
I create furniture that has to be specialized or custom to fit a determined space, is easier than doing it on Revit or ArchiCAD, you can export to match other software.
Ease of use is commendable. I find the software easy to maneuver and make changes.
Haven't encountered and problems or issues just yet.
You will be happy with this product.
In my work as a facilities officer the organisation that I work with is undergoing several changes and developments over a short period of time when compared to previous years. With these developments a number of refurbishments are necessary. Information have to be compiled for the rendering process which includes providing drawings of the current rooms and areas and illustrating the new space needs to look like. Between last year to present I had to sketch the layout of a new building made out of storage metal containers, create a new staff room and computer labs, which included showing partitions lighting fixtures layout, electrical socket and data port placements.Just recently also, I had to provide pre tender documents for two new camera systems for the main building. Sketup had all the features and icons to sketch the entire building and floors and the location of each camera and network switching infrastructure.
Sketchup will always be useful in my line of work.
It provides smart and easy ways for 3D designing. It provides hundreds of developed and professional extensions. It helps in creating all kind projects which includes video game creation, furniture building, interior design, 3D printing and many others. It helps to edit and create 3D and 2D models. It consists of a variety of applications which includes landscaping, architecture, video game designing and many more. It provides three versions according to different needs which include SketchUp Make, SketchUp pro, and SketchUp free.
Its layout maybe not easy to control and creating 3D dimensions may be difficult. It may be difficult to teach its complex functions. It has more complicated controls and functions which should be more intuitive. It must provide more photo-realistic options. Its file type compatibility should be improved more.
SketchUp make is used for personal and educational purposes and is offering a free trial of 30days.

Ease of building shapes and turning them into 3d objects
Lighting is not where i would like to see it. Needs to integrate better
I have been able to sketch something in 2d and visualize/build in 3d quickly and simply
Easy UI and various Sketchy style format visualization. Plus a wide variety of available Plugins can make SketchUp, a very powerful 3D tool.
licensing. there are now too many types and the free version is only web-based.
Current licensing and different versions of SketchUp is not preferred, but it is still a very powerful 3D modeling and drawing tool with no doubt.
sketching options, schematic modeling, and renderings. With plugins, anything can be possible.
