I’m having some issues with connectivity/ stability between Sketchup and Layout, and wanted to see if I’m alone in this.
I’ve been working on a very complicated house design using Sketchup, wouldn’t want to do it any other way. Collaboration with other trades has been ok, and my client loves getting model files he can walk thru, and see from any angle. But…
I am very frustrated by the linking and constant unlinking of the layout drawings to my model. Every day is a new adventure in this regard. It’s especially concerning(cost wise) when I think a layout set is perfect, send to the printer, only to see that their plotter reads a pdf set a bit differently than what I see on my computer screen. Not sure if this is normal?
Another thing, and this is related to the above issue, is scene saving. I feel that even tho saved, my scenes saved in Sketchup are not reliable. Sometimes they are rendered in layout completely different, from day to day, and I think this might be due to linking issue.
I’ve been using Sketchup for 4 or 5 years now, and feel I have pretty good grasp on how to use it, but I could be missing something.
Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
