Hello folks. These last 2 months I’ve been helping/teaching my friend SketchUp. We’re both graduating next week and since he’s seen me working with SketchUp for 4 years, he asked me to teach him, so he could prepare his diploma project, like me. As a thank you, he invited me to his place, so I could use his computer to finish my own project, because I’ve added so much detail, that my notebook refuses to work properly anymore and my presentation is in 4 days (I’m super nervous about it, tbh).
He’s got a powerful notebook and we were discussing the performance of SketchUp, while I was working. I’ve told him that SketchUp runs only on one core and that surprised him a lot. On my way back home I was thinking about it. As much as I’ve read on the Internet, most people say that it’s a disadvantage, that SketchUp uses only 1 core, unlike other 3D softwares.
Do you think SketchUp will run on more than one cores in the future? Maybe GPU support, or something like that? Also, a question about V-Ray. I have difficulty understanding whether it runs on GPU or CPU and whether there’s a chance to choose between those 2. (As far as I know, there are no such options in the settings, except the RT render.)
I’m asking all these questions for several reasons. Firstly, there’s some chance that I might get a powerful notebook/PC in the near future, so I want to make sure I get the best one. Secondly, the future of SketchUp really interests me and as I’m a big fan, I want that future to be the brightest possible and if there’s a chance, I’ll do my best to influence it.
Thanks for reading.
