Most good SU models I see these days are not made in SU

Postby cuttingedge » Fri Oct 13, 2017 9:47 am

Sure sketchup came a long long way.. The user-base has spread like wild fir eall over the globe.
Plugins made are genious and made SU to a capable 3d platform for multiple disciplines.

But the resources I see these days which are tagged made in SU are
not modelled in SU but were just imported to SU..

When I see hi poly cars, beds with high-poly sheets, even human figures fully textured in place..
I kept wondering, when can we do that all inside sketchup?

Any new user, would be mistaken to believe this is all possible in SU
..yes probably but not without pain.

Im one user who likes to model everything (used to) but now ive learned to live with SU limitations and still loved it. SU still my platform of choice.

Yes I have constantly...and yes they are impressive...

I was refering to Max files (from CG axis, evermotion etc) full scenes being converted to sketchup..
even cars, so detailed and good. i wonder if they are by any chance SU-created...

Im happy with these developments though...

Many of those are pirated, but it's rare that you see something that can't be done in SUp.

I think we don't see many examples because a lot of people are happy to buy, download and import whatever they need. It does take a lot of dedication to model complex items in SUp, so it's sort of understandable.
