A Letter to the desk of the Editor

Hello friends!

The year 2014 brings lots of excitements for sketchup users as Trimble has released another crucial version of Sketchup i.e. sketchup 2014.

In SketchUp 2014, there exists significant advancements with 3D warehouse. The sketchup 3D Warehouse is totally revamped with the integration of WebGL viewer, facilitating the sketchup professionals to view and orbit models in complete 3D ahead of downloading them into their own projects. Now the sketchup users don’t have to open any 3D models in sketchup initially for uploading the models. They can upload any 3D models straightforwardly from their web browsers. The size of uploadable models is raised from 10 to 50 megabytes.

Sketchup 2014 simplifies BIM workflow to a great extent with the inclusion of new classifier tools to tag geometry with industry standard object types like walls, slabs, roofs and lots more. After classifying the objects in any model, export an IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) file bundling the project to be applied with a new BIM application. The sketchup users will be able to obtain the crucial metadata that is inserted in Sketchup Pro 2014 with their model geometry.

The team of sketchup ur space had published another sensational issue. In this issue the team of sketchup ur space has presented an exclusive cover story focusing on evolution of sketchup till the release of sketchup 2014.
