Sketchup in Mac

Hey, is someone using sketch up 2024 on Mac? Are there problems?


with M3 macs, you need to turn off the new engine for now.
I’m on a M1 and it’s fine, really.
if you want a better answer, you’ll need to fill in your profile better than that…

2023 is not an OS.
and 36GB graphics card is nice but… what model is it ?

When will Sketchup 2024 work with M3 Macs?

it does.

it works the way it worked for the past 24 years. for now.

Most of the issues on M3 have been fixed, either with updates from Enscape and Profile Builder, or by updating to macOS 14.5. And there is the recent SketchUp update as well.

There are some issues left, exporting images or animations for example. Those may need you to choose the classic graphics engine for now.

Thank you, Colin. I am considering replacing my 2019 Intel Macbook pro with radeon graphics and want to know if a 24 gig ram MacBook Air would be faster??? Please advise.

We generally don’t get specific with computer recommendations. But, my work Mac is a 2019 Intel MacBook Pro with AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB, and my own Mac is an M3 MacBook Pro. The M series graphics are very fast. I don’t know how a 24GB M3 MacBook Air would compare to my 64GB M3 Max MacBook Pro. It should be quite a bit faster than the 2019 Intel Mac.

Thanks, Colin, I think I have a 2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 MacBook Pro with a Radeon Pro Vega 20 4 GB video card. There is a choice in the VRay interface. Does the CUDA or RTX button apply to Mac users? I cannot deduce it from the language on the Chaos website. Your new MacBook M3 has acceleration built in that VRay can access, correct?

CUDA and RTX are Nvidia technologies.

most - if not all for now - rendering tools on mac only use the CPU.
