What’s New in Google SketchUp 8
We’ve stuffed SketchUp 8 full of new and improved features:
Because almost everything is somewhere
Whether you’re designing in context, creating a shadow study or photo-modeling existing structures, SketchUp 8 provides easy access to Google’s huge collection of geographic resources.
Model geo-location with Google Maps
We’ve built Maps right into SketchUp. Adding a geo-location to your model is now an elegant, one-app process.
Color imagery and more accurate terrain
The snapshot you get when you add a geo-location to your model now includes 3D terrain data that’s more accurate, and -- for the first time -- aerial imagery in color.
Match Photo improvements
Our Match Photo feature lets you trace one or more photographs to build a model; it’s an incredibly powerful tool. For SketchUp 8, we’ve tweaked some things to make using Match Photo easier than ever.
SketchUp, meet Building Maker
When it comes to modeling existing buildings, it’s hard to beat Google Building Maker for speed and efficiency. We’ve made it simpler to open and refine Building Maker models in SketchUp. Watch a video
We’ve spent months building powerful new tools, fine-tuning functionality and making sure SketchUp 8 continues to be the most intuitive 3D modeler on the planet.
SketchUp Pro 8 includes a powerful new set of tools for additive and subtractive modeling:
o union Union adds together two or more shapes.
o intersect Intersect makes a new shape out of the bits that overlap [parts that are common] – while deleting everything else.
o subtract Subtract turns a shape into a 3D cookie cutter. Use it to slice and dice any other solid.
o trim Trim tells one shape to take a bite out of the other – without deleting the first shape.
o split Split makes a new shape out of the bits that overlap – while keeping everything else.
