That already exists.


Are you sure you can assign individual color to a concrete inactive section plane?
People will whine and complain no matter how many new features they add.

Exactlty.. Even section colorization won't stop this whining

You mean 2018 would be your last SU update? IMO, SU can continue in its 2018 version indefinitely, what with the plugin ecosystem and Trimble's apparent unwillingness to add significant features.

(Also, I read @function's post as some clever trolling. :mrgreen: )

Unless Windows and MacOS have some sort of update that breaks compatibility with v2018. Who knows what's down the line with them. I mean Apple has been hinting at an Arm based Macbook for a bit now. I don't see how an non updated SU2018 could run on an Arm based machine.

I'm hoping "function" was joking, but if not YIKES!

If SU were to be Web only, Solo would need to change his name because there would be a heck of a lot of SU users joining him out the door.


:-P I am one of my own downvotes. I am stuck perpetually in 2017 Make.

True, there are certainly obsolescence issues to worry about, but considering that I'm still using Windoze 7, it's not a particular worry for me. :D

Being able to use patterns would be a better feature and one I would get alot of is from.

Regarding 'complaining'...

I understand the SU-teams view of; 'keeping it simple' - and look for plugins if you need more fancy features.
But, complaining to me is very valid if, year after year, old and many times reported bugs still aren't fixed. The bugs cost me time, money & headaches and the bad thing is; reporting them on the official forum looks fairly useless.
Hoping V2019 will bring some positive surprises and in that case will gladly post a nice 'thank you' on the forum as well.

I have been a hardcore SketchUp user for probably twelve or thirteen years. I have also used a lots of plugins, courtesy this forum and my friends from whom I borrowed plugins. With SketchUp's unstability to handle large files, detailed meshes and its inability to handle curves properly and handling of complex geometry, I am slowly making a switch to Rhino and Grasshopper.

Being an architect, I am now slowly forming a notion that Grasshopper (invented by an architect) is quite useful for handling and generating geometry that incoporates mathematical logic, geometry that will take a long time to build inside sketchup unless until I know ruby or some other plugin that gives stiff competition to Grasshopper.

However, for rapid modeling, SketchUp will be always my hero. The delay in updates by Trimble corporation and not adding any new features is immensely disappointing indeed.

Trimble probably also turns a blind eye towards the wishlist that their customer post in various forums.

If you use SU more or less seriously you have to keep the zoo of plugins with a total chaos in right ckick menu and toolbar bedlam. In the end it looks even more uglier than this (thanks to sabotage called 'let's keep SU simple').

SketchUp Free (Browser) is not the successor of SketchUp Make (Desktop) and besides of this available since November 2017.

hi
you are absolutely right - sketchup make 2017 is the latest free desktop version -
with 2019 sketchup will introduce 4 possibilities :
- sketchup free (browser, online)
- sketchup shop (browser, online, annual lisence, some additional possibilities & options not included in free)
- sketchup pro (desktop version)
- sketchup studio (VR)

I'll have to take a look at the clip later, hopefully YouTube translation technology (subtitles) will help.

I'm willing to give it (SketchUp Studio / VR) a chance, and will not complain about it since we don't know anything about it or if it even will make it into the wild.

I sincerely hope the development energy / funds wasn't focused on something we didn't ask for (and for which a few extensions already exist).

The same 'controlled leakage' scenario. A year ago some Aussie SU reseller teased similarly.
