  • In sketchup 2016, the default material libraries are renovated with the inclusion of up-to-date textures and reforming categories. Press ‘B’ and go wild.
  • LayOut dimensions are also amended with the new ‘small dimension’ leaders to make sure that text by no means obstructs with arrows or extension lines, and that all the dimensions always comprise room to extend while dealing with limited spaces.
