BoolTool plugin of SketchUp allows designers to add nuanced detail to the design as accurately as they expect. Performing some Boolean operations are tough for SketchUp even with the Solid Tools. This is why SketchUp releases this new BoolTool extension to design precision models.
Since Boolean operations need high-precision 3D details, internal SketchUp Geometry engine struggles to define the function as exactly as required. This leads SolidTool users to opt for the Copy and scaled-up workflow to make their solid Tool operation error free. The limitations of SolidTool have also been eliminated by the use BoolTool for SketchUp.
For accessing complete benefits of BoolTool, you need to purchase the plugin. Otherwise, you can witness the Boolean operation but cannot make any object with it.
Features of BoolTool2 are as follows:
- This application is for SketchUp Make and SketchUp Pro.
• It works on small, complex object in your 3D modeling.
• It does not create a new object; rather it modifies the existing one.
• Maintains the layers and names of the first object it works on.
- It performs functions like union, difference, intersection, trim and split.
• It comes up with a new single object creation tool.
• It delivers solid 3D printable object in every case.
This first and user-friendly extension of SketchUp makes the 3D design even more interesting and simplified. It offers an understandable environment where you can enjoy your design the way you want. Along with some essential features, this application will prove beneficial to work on more complex objects that even the internal SketchUp geometry found hard to solve.
Vetro Studio 3D promises you to provide an ultimate thrill of 3 Modeling world by offering a real-time experience like nothing before. Michael Farrell, the owner of Verto Studio LLC, develops the application to remove certain shortcomings today’s 3D designing applications generally have. It works to bridge the gap between XR 3D modeling and the quintessential desktop 3D modeling packages. The HTC vive and Oculus Rift versions have seen improvements with the announcement.
The surge in mixed reality technologies leads us to the world of dimensions where we can stroll around in the virtual 3D world like our existed real world. A demand for new technologies and tools has been felt to make the world even sharper and subtle. Every designer at their early stage might face the difficulties of converting 2d designs into a real object of 3D space using CAD and 3D modeling. 25 years has been spent in discovering a tool that can be termed as a proficient solution of designing virtual objects in 3D. Verto Studio 3D is the name that breaks all limitations of 3D designing and provides an uncompromising platform where designers not only design but also feel their 3D models.
With this 3D modeling package, a designer gets invaluable knowledge of shape, measurement and other related things with experiencing their 3D models in the virtual space. The Verto Studio VR for HoloLens and windows Holographic design ensures that you get the real fun while designing 3 D models in holographic 3 D modeling studio developed with reality tool.
The application supports a wide range of file domains like FBX, DAE, OBJ, and STL that allow users to import different mesh models or design their own objects. With this application, users can transform desktop support or tablet support 3D files into hologram-capable files. A built-in cloud integration certifies users to access to users’ documents for both export and import fields.
Features offered by Verto Studio 3D:
- DAE,OBJ,STL,FBX file import
• Verto Studio file format support via Verto Studio Cloud or Other Cloud Services
• Polygonal Mesh generation
• Terrain generator (height field)
- 3D Sketch tool
• Mesh Augmentation
• Polygon reduction
• Polygon extrusion
• Polygon subdivision
• Texture coordinate editor
• Editing features
• Vertex Translation/Rotation/Scaling
• Metric display of position & size measurements for 3D holograms
• Material editor
• Texture mapping
• Multiple Real-time shading modes and rendering of diffuse & bump texture maps
• Real-time scaling, moving, rotating, panning, auto scene re-orientation
Francis Mc Shane, the renowned architect, has developed WinDoor+ for sketchup. This sketchup extension supports SketchUp 2016 and SketchUp 2017. This extension is available in English, French and German languages.
WinDoor+ is the combination of two powerful extensions i.e. Window+ and Door+. They both develop prevailing window and can be used for generating & editing door.
WinDoor+ is specifically created for building designers to produce and edit good-looking, well proportioned rectangular windows and doors efficiently.
WinDoor+ is utilized to generate complicated rectangular windows and doors instantly as well as edit them to appear similar to the windows and doors in the catalogue for your project by facilitating the users to modify the doorframe, door leaf and window profile sizes, glass/panel thickness and glass/panel retaining detail size. With the application of an easy and natural panel division algorithm, the extension can facilitate the users to divide the door leaf or window into any panel arrangement as per your choice.
Door+ allows the rapid formation of single, double and cottage doors. Door leafs range from plain or framed.
Both Window+ and Door+ can produce BIM data like profile lengths and glass and panel areas.
