Thank you for your reply.
That’s what I feared !
It’s a shame and a real weak point (or am I the only one to think so?) for Sketchup compared to other architectural software (Autocad, Archicad, Revit…).
I hope Trimble will read this post one day and do something about it. Or that someone will make a great extension to solve this problem!
I feel your “pain” and yes, it would have been nice if it were possible. On the other hand, while comparing also compare the price. And the joy modeling in one program against the other. Also the inferencing engine etc.
p.s. you could make a feature request. It would be a nice feature.
There’s a way to do it but you need the zorro 2 plug in, right click on the section plane and slice the model, then to the lines created from the slice you can assign different tags, from layout you can change the color and width of every tag given on Sketchup.
I totally agree, and that’s why I abandoned my old way of working: sketchup + autocad to switch to Sketchup + skalp + layout.
I like to draw with Sketchup, much more than with Autocad.
And I don’t like Revit or Archicad, which are more configuration software than drawing software. That’s just my opinion !
But now that I spend all my time working on Sketchup, I dream that it will improve again and again, because some weak points are really problematic to me.
The main ones in my opinion:
hatches do not exist (skalp is great but a bit weak for my taste)
layout is a bit too poor and too slow.
exporting a whole project properly to other software (dwg, archicad, revit) to exchange with engineers is very complicated…
What are you talking about with “referencing engine”?
I didn’t know you could make a feature request, I’ll do it! thanks !
And thanks to Francisquitof, I will check that !
