2019 GLASER STX (1.0.10) for Sketchup

2019 GLASER STX is the newest sketchup plugin available in extension warehouse. It is compatible with SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017, SketchUp 2018, SketchUp 2019.

STX (Section Tool eXtended) facilitates the users to simply generate easy sections having individual depth and differentiate among visible, cut and hidden components and demonstrate them in the preview with several colors. Sections are exported as DXF or GLASER -isb cad.

GLASER STX allows the definition of any cut depth, comes up with suitable functions for individual treatment of the section drawings and maximize the export to GLASER isb cad or into the DXF-format. Unnecessary components in the construction drawing, e.g. hidden edges, are filtered.

The same is applicable to 3D-layers for several components, which are also exportable. Consequently, a construction drawing is produced that is properly customizable to your needs. It can be instantly passed to GLASER isb cad or saved in DXF-format.

It is possible to simply identify any section planes with individual cutting depths and transmit them to GLASER isb cad . Along with SketchUp Pro one can implement the world of BIM data (IFC) for further editing.

What’s New in SketchUp Pro 2020: Part 2

In our previous article, we have started talking about the all-new SketchUp Pro 2020 and the new features in it. We have mentioned the new scale figure, the interface enhancements, new object hiding selection, and new organizational abilities. While those were plenty exciting by themselves, it’s not all! SketchUp Pro has much more to offer. Let us see the rest of what’s new in the SketchUp Pro 2020.

Today, we will talk about the following:
New Nomenclature, LayOut 2020, Document control, Model Views, Customization, …etc

The New Nomenclatures: The Trimble team has been deliberating over this for a while now. Without changing your workflow, the new naming conventions are supposed to give you better control over your model. The naming system is more logical now, and they sound more appropriate.

Naming changes in SketchUp 2020

a. ‘Objects’ now collectively mean groups and components. This includes dynamic components as well.
b. ‘Layers’ now are called tags.

This means you won’t have to use multiple words to mean a bunch of similar stuff now. Also, the thinking process of the designer changes depending upon the words that are used in the design interface.

What’s New in SketchUp Pro 2020

The new SketchUp Pro 2020 is out! You can grab the latest with the updates, if you already have the subscription. Or you can download a fresh copy off Trimble’s site. Either way, you get to enjoy the cool new additions to this hot design and modeling software. Today, let us see what are these new additions in SketchUp Pro 2020.

1. Meet Laura: Trimble has added a new and attractive personality in the SketchUp 2020. The latest scale figure in SketchUp is called Laura.

To clarify, a scale figure in SketchUp is the figure you see standing at the intersection of the red, blue and green lines, at the time when you start a new drawing. The figure is given there according to scale. This helps you to design your model and compare it to real life dimensions.

Laura, the latest addition to the line of scale figures in SketchUp, is a great fit to the modern designers empty workspace. She looks caucasian with her fair skin and dirty-blonde hair. Dressed in a simple crisp red-and-blue attire, she carries a bag and kinda brings up the working mom vibe. Mystery point: what does the pendant on her neck hold?

2. A New 3D Creative Space: To make sure the modeling space is more intuitive and the data structure more supportive to the users’ needs, Trimble has made some big changes in this year’s SketchUp. The first thing you will notice is in the Outliner, then it will go on to snapping objects, then we will move on to hiding stuff and changes in LayOut.

The Outliner: A great model organization change took place in this. Now, you won’t have to keep making layer upon layer. You can directly organize your model in the Outliner straight away. Create chunks of stuff in your model and hide/unhide them as you please in the Outliner. The friendly eyeball icon comes in very handy here. More on this is detailed in this video.
