Skalp, live solid section tool for SketchUp


Do you use the SketchUp lines or the special Skalp Lineweights? If you use the Skalp Lineweights you need to use the correct scale, because the line weights are scale depended. If you use the SketchUp you need to set the same SketchUp style (or the same settings) in your scenes.
Please send the layout file to so we can look into your problem.


Yes, by layer…It’s the only way I use Skalp


I use skalp line weights. only one style with section line width=1
both sections have the same scale 1/50. I’ll send you the file.




Fernando, I haven’t received any file.


I sent you an email yesterday with the link to download it.


Hi @Guy

I thought I would post this question here, rather than start a new topic, so I hope that this is ok.

I know that normal Sketchup Sections can be used within a group. This can be handy when creating sections of walls and not wanting the furniture within the rooms to be sectioned.

Is it possible to do this with Skalp? I did try the other day to enter the ‘walls’ group in my drawing and then use Skalp. It didn’t seem to like this and Sketchup bailed out and quit. I was within the base level group though and was trying to apply Skalp to raw geometry, so maybe it didn’t like this.

Could it be to do with “Depth Clipping”? I’m not really sure what that is.

Anyway, just a general query really. I use Skalp loads, and was just trying to figure out a way to use it on a particular project to section the walls, but not all the filing cabinets I had in the drawing.

Many thanks and kind regards



Today Trimble released SketchUp 2019

And yes there is a new Skalp version available for SketchUp 2019. This new Skalp version which only works with SketchUp 2019 can be downloaded from our website.

Do I need to buy an upgrade?
If you have an active Skalp Upgrade, Maintenance and Support you are can use your old Skalp license code to activate this new Skalp version. If your Maintenance is expired (with every new Skalp license 1-year Skalp Upgrade, Maintenance and support is included) you will get the option to buy a new Maintenance when you try to activate the new Skalp version with you license activation code directly from inside SketchUp.

What’s new in Skalp 2019:

  • We support the new SketchUp 2019 linestyles for our Rear View Projection. You still have the option to use our own Skalp linestyles.

  • Every Scene can have a different line style for the Rear View Projection when you use the SketchUp linestyle system.

  • When you don’t like the speeddown when using Skalp you can switch during modeling to the SketchUp Section Fill system. Just switch back when you want to see the full hatched Skalp version. At this moment the Section Fill Color is fixed set to Dark Grey when using the SketchUp Fill system. All other Skalp feature stay working when using the SketchUp Fill system.

  • We worked very hard on our export options:
    • We now also have the option to export to DWG

  • We support DXF/DWG up until version 2018

  • We support different Rear View Projection linestyles in the export.
  • You can now also export non-Skalp scenes
  • You can now select which scenes you want to export.

  • We now support lineweights for the Section Cut Width in the export
  • We now support truecolor instead of indexed color

Hi @Guy

The latest version of Skalp for Sketchup Pro 2018 is brilliant. Works a treat and I really like the DWG Export.

Holding off on Sketchup 2019 at the moment as there’s no real reason for me to upgrade when my 2018 is working well. Also, there’s no changes to Layout, which, in my opinion, needed 90% of the development time.




But if you like the Skalp DWG export, maybe Skalp is the reason to update to 2019.

At this time there is already the new batch dwg exporter in Skalp 4.0 where you can select which scenes you like to export and have the abilty to export also non Skalp scenes. Very soon the option to export front and rearview lines to the correct layers we be introduced.
New features will only come to the latest SketchUp version.

Kind regards,



I will eventually @Guy, but I’m going to wait a bit as I like to make sure all the Bugs are ironed out first.
