Trimble SketchUp Studio 2021 [Annual], the easiest way to design

Trimble SketchUp Studio 2021 [Annual] is the simplest way to steer your projects ahead with confidence. Model your project with the SketchUp tools you know and love, plus all the analysis tools you need to build efficient buildings.

Whatever your project goals, SketchUp Studio 2021 can help you achieve them. Whether you’re designing a passive low energy home, wanting to meet the 2030 challenge or aiming for another performance goal, SketchUp Studio helps you drive consensus on how to improve your project and worry less about whether you’re on track.

Make everything easier. SketchUp is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction. Programming, diagramming, design development, detailing, documentation, RFIs—wherever you need drawings, you need SketchUp Pro.

SketchUp Pro is the most intuitive way to design, document, and communicate your ideas in 3D. SketchUp is a premier 3D design software that truly makes 3D modelling for everyone, with a simple to learn yet robust toolset.

SketchUp 2021, what’s new?

Introducing Predesign

This brand-new climate research tool helps you to understand the local environment surrounding your project before you start modelling in 3D. Intuitive sun path diagrams show you the areas of your site that need to be shielded from overheating sun.

And it doesn’t just flag the issues; PreDesign suggests effective glazing, shading, and top-lighting strategies for each face of your building.

PreDesign improves design outcomes—projects will be better informed, and designers will have more information to influence preliminary solutions.

Improved Tag Management

Complex models involve managing long lists of tags and scenes. SketchUp 2021 makes this much easier with the inclusion of Tag Folders and Tag Filtering. Tag Folder mean you can organise, and catalog tags based on attributes, building levels, or design options.

This feature is also available in LayOut. Tag Filtering makes it a lot easier to search for tags in your model and quickly control individual tag visibility, make tag-based selections in the modelling window, or edit tag properties and styling.

Live Components

There’s a new type of configurable object for SketchUp 2021: Live Components. A successful model is one that can easily accommodate iterations and allow for rapid change so let Live Components do some of the heavy lifting for you.

Customise dimensions and sizes for repeated object use; quickly add rich context and adjust in real-time to produce more detailed designs in less time; or rapidly iterate large sets of components all at once as project requirements change.

Live Components can be found in 3D Warehouse and are available for you to download and configure right in SketchUp with SketchUp’s latest version.

SketchUp Labs

A fun fact: Live Components is the first feature to be released under a new program called ‘SketchUp Labs’. SketchUp Labs represents a new initiative to incorporate user community feedback into future product development processes of SketchUp – a sneak peek into the future of SketchUp.

Join the forums for discussions on the future direction of Live Components or provide feedback if you encounter issues.

SketchUp Key features

Outliner

In an effort to increase model performance, you no longer have to create Layers upon Layers. Manage and organise your model straight within Outliner. Use the friendly eyeball icon to toggle between the major sections of your model, such as main floor plans and furniture.

New grips on bounding boxes

When you grab a point that is obscured in an object (such as a back corner or centre point) and start to move it, your object will automatically go transparent when something in your model interferes with the object you are moving. This works with both the Rotate tool and Move tool. This will literally ‘transform’ your workflow. Don’t take our word for it: start positioning objects in hard to reach places to see what happens!

Better control of hidden objects

You’ll notice in your drop-down menu that we separated hiding objects from hiding geometry. How will this change your workflow? Well, this will give you the ability to better manage hidden geometry and hidden objects for an even easier modelling experience. For example, let’s say you want to edit hidden edges in a landscape or smoothed surface, but you still want to be able to hide objects that are nearby (like trees, bushes, or a building)…well you can do that now!

Updates to your SketchUp dictionary 

We have a few updates to the naming conventions we use when talking about SketchUp. This won’t change your workflow…but we want to make sure you know we are saying a few things differently now.

Objects are now a collective term for: groups, components, and dynamic components. This just means we don’t have to say “groups (slash) components” anymore. Also, Layers are now referred to as “Tags”. Keep in mind that these two terms are merely naming conventions and won’t influence your workflow.

LayOut: document control

The focus for LayOut was on improving the interaction between SketchUp & LayOut to save you time and [brain] energy. This means way less back and forth in SketchUp updating scenes to ensure your drawing comes out perfectly. Now you have more editing ability, directly in LayOut

More power to adjust model views

LayOut now understands a lot more about your SketchUp model and what you’ve overridden. This means you can safely change a style or camera angle directly in LayOut without accidentally losing your changes.

How do you know what’s different in your LayOut viewport versus your model? When you make changes in LayOut, parts of the menu bar will go dark grey, alerting you that you’ve made an override. Keep in mind: just because you made some changes in LayOut, doesn’t mean you’re stuck with those. You can always resync your viewports back to your SketchUp model if needed.

Improved customisation of your drawings 

Take those LayOut docs to the next level with different models and views. If you have one SketchUp model that exists across several viewports, you can now relink just one of those viewports to another SketchUp model. Previously, you had to delete that viewport, insert a new SKP model, and reset all your scale settings and viewport sizing. More efficient now?

And that’s not all! You also have the ability to toggle Tag visibility — straight in your LayOut doc! What does this mean for your workflow? You don’t have to create extra scenes just for your LayOut files, saving you a ton of time going back and forth between LayOut and SketchUp.

Trimble SketchUp Studio 2021 [Annual] subscription includes everything you need to draw, model and present:

  • Premium online modeller (SketchUp for Web)
  • Trimble Connect for Business
  • SketchUp Pro for Desktop, LayOut, and Style Builder
  • Analyse energy use, daylighting, occupant thermal comfort, and HVAC before you build with Sefaira.
  • The subscription also includes augmented reality features within SketchUp Viewer for iOS and Android and viewing apps for the following XR devices: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Microsoft HoloLens, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

Using Sefaira, we were able to study multiple options within a short period of time, which allowed the team to arrive at a design direction that we all felt comfortable with much faster with meaningful data as opposed to ‘rules of thumb’ and broad assumptions.
