As the majority of my time is in the field, I am using sketch up pro on my ipad Pro. Beings as SU is relatively new to Ipad, are their plugins available or additions to the Ipad application like the “weld” plugin?
No, there won’t be any extensions or such for iPad… I believe because of apple regulations and abilities.
Weld as a function, however, is in the context menu when more than one thing is selected. Not sure that actually helps you as it’s not comprehensive like a plug-in, but it helps me
There should be a way to apply them. I can think of a few examples of apps like Pythonista, which support installing modules/libraries etc.
Another way might be to vote them in and have the most popular ones packaged in updates which can then be optionally applied via the UI.
In any case, one of the foundations of the SU workflow process is being able to customize your own UI over a stripped down version of every other 3D modeling application on the market. To not have any support for plugins is to change the package at a core conceptual level.
I was personally quite sad to learn that there is no support for plugins, but then I was equally and happily surprised to learn that we finally have an iPad app, so I’ll keep hoping for now.
