Being a hard-core Fedora Linux person, I find it is a pain to run SketchUp on Wine or in a Windows VM - so I was super-excited when I found out about my.SketchUp - it is exactly what I need! However, there are still some considerations for me:
There doesn’t appear to be a RoadMap for my.SketchUp - is anyone able to comment when the likely ETA is for it to be “substantially” equivalent to the Windows version? My immediate and near-future needs are:
- re-create the drawings for the first house in the village (http://lev.com.au) in my.SketchUp
- to be able to import contour information from a DWG for the whole Village plan
- draw the whole village (another 11 houses) as a site plan but with detail for the second house after I have finished recreating the drawings for the first house
I am not a professional CAD person but I am fairly familiar with things like InkScape etc but I am unlikely to be able to get the DWG files from the engineering company (I only have the files as PDFs and the company has gone broke) and it is probably a good exercise to recreate the first house drawings anyway. I attach some of the drawings but you can see more at the web site. Does anyone have suggestions about the most efficient way of proceeding? - from a “not wasting time” point of view but also in terms of learning my.SketchUp?
