sketchup user here, not a pro (in ability) but somehow manage to get away with most of my project needs. I mostly design furniture, nothing too complex but above the basic butt joined boxes.
I’ve just come across fusion 360 recently and the people using it makes it look super quick and easy, which is not… of course. My quesiton is, are there any users who use both apps for their creation (espeically up to furniture related difficulty) who can maybe help me out evaluate the pros/cons of each? I know that proficient users in any of the software will have no trouble creating furniture, but I still wish to hear other people’s opinions. I for one am currently watching some youtube videos to have a better idea if switching to fusion might make more sense, but so far, what i’ve seen I can do it on sketchup (im still at the first couple of videos tho)
what attracts me most is the ease of editing the model once done. in sketchup its a bit of hassle to resize one item without skewing the rest, mostly at keeping angles. Also the fact sometimes i end up with hollow models in sketchup is still an issue for me. I’m pretty sure there are shorter work arounds and plugins that will clean the models for you but I’ve never looked into it that much.
