I come from Vectorworks, and I’m now working at a firm that prefers Sketchup. I’m getting the hang of Sketchup - including the “hidden” features (type in Move coordinates, absolute location, lock axis with arrow keys, etc). This forum and others have been extremely helpful.
What I’m finding missing though, is an Object Info pallet as useful as the ones in VW & AutoCAD. Entity Info just feels insufficient every time I glance over. Here’s what I’m looking for:
- Displays Exterior dimensions of a component - or at least delta x, delta y, delta z
- Displays Absolute coordinate location of the base point of the object AND is user editable. All the time I move objects in Top view, and find that they’ve snapped far away from “0” in the Z (Blue) plane. I would love to just click the object, type “0” in the Z field, and move on with life.
Has anyone seen an extension like this? I can do all these tasks in SU, I’ve figured out other ways, but it would be so sexy to have a use Entity Info Pallet.
