"Details of some 3D Warehouse Tools from SketchUp Extension Warehouse"

Subhra Bera: Editor

SketchUp Extension Warehouse has some quality check tools that help to review every little things of the model of users and help to remove unnecessary things before uploading the model.

The SketchUp Extension Warehouse is full of tools that enable users to review the model of users such as nested groups, model size and remove any unnecessary lines, marks etc. before uploading the model into 3D Warehouse.

About SketchUp: SketchUp or Google SketchUp is owned by Trimble Inc., a mapping, surveying and navigation company. It is mainly a 3D modeling computer program that is used for a broad range of drawing applications used by architects, interior designer, landscape architects, civil and mechanical engineers, film and video game designers also. It SketchUp can be getting as a freeware version named SketchUp Make and a paid version with many more extra benefits called SketchUp Pro. SketchUp is software from Trimble Company and there is an online library of free model congregations and 3D Warehouse to which users can add other models; besides that, the program has drawing layout functionality with variable ‘styles’, supports third-party ‘plug-in’ programs hosted on the Extension Warehouse to supply other abilities and enables placement of its models in Google Earth. As SketchUp users are most of architects, designers, builders, makers and engineers etc.

who works hard to give a nice shape to our physical world, they need great tools to do the work. SketchUp is in mission to bring their best to produce some great tools for drawing as drawing is the key thing of the SketchUp users. They draw to search ideas, to identify the things and to show other people their work that they do with love and love to build; SketchUp understands it truly and trying to improve their software day by day. SketchUp is a worth useful software for its ease of use, it can be downloaded or installed o computer and right after that user can work on it.

Here are the details of some tools:

  • Show Nesting Levels: It is a visual way of testing the structure of a selection or the whole model. This tool creates a layer for every nesting level that is found in the selection and sets the model display to Color by layer. The layers use ordinary AutoCAD colors like red-1, yellow-2, green-3, cyan-4, blue-5, magenta-6, and silver-7.
  • Save Screen Image: This tool allows users to notate the model directly in SketchUp, then catch the screen as a jpg file for communication and further analysis. It also saves the image in the same folder as the model and at any time through the review, they are numbered consecutively for users.
  • Model Report: Users can use this tool to view information about the selection or the entire model. The Top Level information shows users the number of components and groups at the first level when editing the component. The second half of the report shows the whole polygon count which is very
  • Quick Check: This is a menu item that counts all the needless elements in the model based upon the 3D Warehouse checklist and highlights them for visual inspection.
  • Count Stuff: This menu items allows users to count just one type of element in the model and can highlight it for users also.
  • 3D Warehouse Cleaner: This tool allows users to decide which things to remove from the model based upon the 3D Warehouse checklist. The default is all items. Users will have a summary and can see all the items disappear from each dialog, simplifying the model.
