I’m happy to announce that a 2021.1 update is now available for SketchUp Pro, and also live in SketchUp for Web. This release features notable changes to tool ‘modifiers’, inferencing, face drawing, Live Components, PDF export quality, and… well, let’s just say there are many useful and important details to read about in our Release Notes and on the SketchUp Blog.
Our team is pretty excited about this update. We have really rolled up our sleeves to work out some modeling quirks and establish more consistent usage patterns. Our motivation is to improve learnability for newcomers and also to lay a foundation for more efficient, capable tools.
For many people, these will be subtle changes. But if you use SketchUp regularly, you are likely to ‘notice’ the important nuances of this update. So, we are eager to gather and understand your feedback. How are you adapting? What are you in love with? And where would you like to see us do more to improve?
We’ll be listening on this thread, but also across the SketchUp Forum. Please start dedicated topics to discuss the tools, modeling behaviors, or other aspects of this update that matter most to you. Happy sketching, all!
