SketchUp software quality in one image
I just stuck on launch without any reason. On 3,5Ghz core i7 proc and 32Gb RAM. Such a lightweight 3D sketching software. No other 3D/2D/Video editors was launched in that time.
Five attempts to force quit and launch without success. I know what the support will say: “Restart you mac”. I do not need software which require restart my machine to lunch it.
More complex tools like Cinema 4D and Modo never stuck like this on my mac.
@DanRathbun and @Anssi i glad to see you have no problems with the UI, usability and performance of this product. Maybe it’s need to be a distinct type of mind to use and like the way sketchup works and do not see the roughness.
The bad thing is users who paid money for the bad product and come to the developers side with arguments like “they do the best they can” or “this is core limitations” or “this is company policy to make bad software” or “this is OpenGL” or “place here you exuse”. In that case developer feels community support and continue ignore pitfalls.
My luck this happened on trial period.
Goodbye and be happy with this software.
P.S.: Why this post is here?
I am a software developer by my first job. And as software developer i always want to know why my users left my products and what they dislike, what make them angry.
Do as you want to be done with you.
There are a lot of small features which make SketchUp stand out of other 3D sketching tools. But there are a lot of strange UI design and patterns which prevent me to purchase full product. To be purchased, software should not stuck on launch at last. SketchUp failed in that, for now.
