    SketchUp 2019

    Apparently, there's a SketchUp (yeah, I know) 2019 version out now.
    I say apparently because I only found it by searching for it.
    We're still on SU 2017. I'd love to get rid of it, but our designers like it and are quite used to it.

    Anyway, for those of you who like to complain about how slow Revit gets updated:
    SU versions used to come out in November. Looks like this one was released early-mid February.
    Not only later than usual, but here's the "New features" list:
    • Layers now have dashed lines
    • The Tape Measure tool got a facelift
    • Marc, our SketchUp Pro 2019 Scale Figure. (Seriously, a new person is #3 on their "features list)
    • a boatload of improvements to our .dwg import and export

    And that's it. Of course, it's also "faster and more powerful than ever before with bug fixes"

    OK, I lied. There IS one more "feature":
    We've got a brand new way for you to pay us!!!!
    Yay! Subscription based licenses!

    Oh, and that subscription?
    Last year it was $120 for our stand-alone licenses and $200 for our networked license.
    Now, with "the best way to deliver more value to our users", it's $299

    Please get your facts straight. Trimble, like Autodesk has already done, is transitioning their products to subscriptions. The $299 is the new subscription based pricing. The $120/$200 number is for yearly maintenace for firms who already own Sketchup. You can still buy a stand alone version of Sketchup for $695. You do not have to got to the subscription model although Timble will probably make that mandatory down the road.
    I also don't get why a lot of people put down Sketchup because they think it is simplistic. Every software has it's purpose and to dismiss something you don't want or need is somewhat shortsighted. I would like to say ignorant but I'm being polite.
    If you have a shop with a table saw, jointer, band saw etc., you can make fantastic things. Someone also can make fantastic things with a hammer and a hand saw.

    You can say Ignorant, if you like. Isnt going to hurt my feelings, and im not going to take it personally, that you would choose to be wrong. I would agree i was ignorant, if it was a software or platform i didnt know something about, and hadnt spent a decent amount of time supporting or working with. But... There is a reason im not sitting here saying Rhino is junk: It isnt. Make what you will of that, LOL.

    But your cute "Im not going to call you ignorant, because im being polite, so this is me NOT calling you ignorant" stuff is hilarious.

    Sorry, I don't mean to offend. There is no nuance on the internet. It's ALL CAPS.

    Usually, those who aren't the designers at the firm put down SketchUp. At the same token, those who do design put down Revit as well. It goes both ways. If we want to get rid of SketchUp or Rhino altogether then Revit should improve its modelling tools drastically. By now we all know that that isn't going to happen and FormIt which supposed to be Revit's complementary design tool still has the basic simplistic modelling tools since 2013 which makes it useless in most cases. So for now, we can only be extremely grateful for design tools like SU and Rhino which makes our lives so much easier and productive. ,
