1 project - multiple users

Postby digicent » Sun Dec 02, 2007 6:07 am

I don't know if i missed this in the manual for SketchUp ... if so - my appologies that im wasting everybodies time with my question.

As you all know by now, SketchUp is my addiction - it is so bad that, if i see something, i immediately start wondering if i can make it in SU.

To improve my skills, it would be handy to have multiple accounts per project.

Fe - we start a new project, i login with my account, start drawing ...... a better and more skilled artist logs in with his account ... corrects and improves where needed.
That way - i can see the difference ... and he can tell me how to correct the mistakes i made.

So is this possible ? Does it come with SU ? Do i need to install something extra ? Or is it simply impossible ?

You want both people to be working with the same file at the same time? The only way I can think of to do this is to use something like Microsoft live meeting or Webex and view the same file together and hand control over to the other user back and forth.
It is slow however.

You can just save the file. Send it to the other user. He works on it and saves a newer version which he sends to you and you open it and look at the differences. For that matter you can import the original version into the new improved file and compare them side by side.

Some CAD programs such as ArchiCad have some workgroup features, but even they don't let two users work at the same part of the same file simultaneously.

SU does not do this.

Revit however does, but like Anssi said, not two people on the same "part" at the same time. They employ what they call Worksets. You check out a workset, make your changes/updates and save to central. Another person load's the latest and the updates are made.

You can only exploit some SU features to act like this; if you have a "master model", parts of it can be elaborated by other users and you just reload those saved parts as components while having "dummy components" until the others are finished.
