I’m just looking into different products and their suitability of doing what I need. I’m including Sketchup in this as I believe its one of the easier products to create objects in.
Basically I would like to create a “stage” within this stage I want to be able to create objects (lets say a couple of vertical columns). I would like to name these columns individually or assign a number to them.
Then I would like to take a UDP packet which has data relating to the position of these columns and I would like this to then place the columns in their correct positions within the stage area. So basically I need to take the packet, split it into its constituent parts and extract the positional data
Then the next day I might do the same process but for a vertical column and 3 horizontal beams. (So basically I need it to be easy to create these worlds.
My question then to the community is do you guys think this is worth pursuing in sketchup? Or should I look at something more like Cinema4D or 3DS Max?
