Wow. Have to say I am disappointed. Really get the sense that Trimble doesn’t give a Sh*t.
Don’t get me wrong. All the Sketch Up folks I had the pleasure to meet at 3D Base camp where great. Really nice people that I’m sure worked very hard.
Dotted lines and an improved tape measure tool? Seems the biggest change is pricing. Best I can tell is we do not even get a credit for the maintenance plan if we move to the subscription model. So I paid 120 in November. Now I would have to add 300 hundred to get XR Headset Viewing? And some storage.?basically AutoCad 360.
I really like sketchup but it is getting harder to accept its downfalls. Too often I end up needing to split one dwg into 3 or 4 files. Every thing I make is a named group or component from the first face to keep things within best dwg practices,I purge and check for stray lines constantly, but before you know it the lag becomes a real drag. The Outliner in 2018 version starts bouncing around and Sketch Up could be unusable for 10 minutes. Then it happens again.
How about the ability to deal with larger files in 2019.
I am curious how many requests have been fulfilled from the 2019 wish list? Where subscription packages on the wish list?
. The release notes seems to me like a bunch of bug fixes that should have been addressed in an actual update some time during the year. Not a new release. didn’t see an update during 2018. Did I miss it ?
I’ll have to do the math but Its starting to feel like that after adding in the paid extensions to get what I need out of SketchUp its costing as much and not working as well as my old AutoCad subscriptions. And they handled pretty big construction dwgs with plenty of line options. PDF also.
