I work for an Exhibition company, we sell and hire Truss.
At the moment we are using a very basic CAD program (If there was a way I could import dwg. files that would help!) to do these drawings, however it has one very useful feature which brings me here…There are a vast range of corners, lengths, base plates that are needed to build a truss structure, which is where our program shines, it simply snaps onto the corner or length you wish to snap to.
Without this feature it makes SketchUp very time consuming, I know there are trusses available on the warehouse and you can use the end points to connect the blocks together but i found this was very “fiddly”.
If there was a plug-in, extension or maybe a different set of trusses which are easier to use then I could use SketchUp on a daily basis.
The bad points to our program is that its very limited for example we cant add new products, banners or furniture… which im guessing SketchUp can do?
I’m fairly new to this so any tips on using the program would also be a huge help!
Thanks in advance for you help.
