Garbage. Downloaded so I could see enclosure specifications for a sundown subwoofer and the application is more concerned about gaining access to my contacts that it is pulling up the layout. After finally giving permission the application still will not pull up the enclosure specs. Very disapointed.
A work in progress. Sometimes (often) models won't load so people only see a black screen, it requires permission to use my contacts?! randomly prompts you to log out when browsing your cloud models which for some reason will now be organised by random continents?? And asks for a fair chunk of for a feature which it then says won't work on my phone :(
Please fix Tremble connect through Google login. I just obtain an error page whenever I test to login through Google. Edit: Developer response was correct, setting my default browser to Chrome fixed this issue. However I do not want to use Chrome by default, I instead use Firefox. I assume once my Auth token expires then I will have to change my default browser again to re-auth. It would be nice if the login could work with Firefox as well please ♥. My worry about the Firefox re-auth is basically the only reason I'm doing 4 🌟 instead of 5 🌟 (for anyone reading this)
Just doesn't work. Won't let you to sign in using google (403 error) to obtain your files. Won't begin local skp files as they are all grayed out. It worked for me (using local file) on my Note 8 one single time. Junk app... and it's a shame because I'd love to be able to see and share my drawings.
Full of bugs :- 1. When using begin with option to begin skp directly from a 3rd party application its not opening the skp file it was Previously Opening in v3 version. t showing recently opend file in begin screen it was also working in v3. 3.when using tape tool its showing a huge worthless window saying select 2nd point its size must be reduced. Fix all these the problems first necessary review foe application developers.
Rather pathetic that despite the extreme mobile power of tablets and phones these days especially with the advent of Kirin 980 and 12X chips, Trimble has allow Sketchup fall behind in this regard. There should be a sketchup mobile edition by now so designers can bring it anywhere and edit without having to begin a laptop. A true mobile 3D application would have been a piece of cake. Most useful for making on-site as-built measurements. Would have chop down the work.
A very useful application for opening sketch up documents while on the go. But i do face an problem where the application fails at opening a sketch up file from the e application simply crashes when I test to begin might be because of my phone's hardware limitations...casue in other phones this application works flawlessly.
Sketchy. Doesn't work if you deny access to contacts. Can't see any reason this application needs to scrape my contacts list. Application claims it needs this to verify subscriptions or or something. I was just hoping to view a few models on the go, but this is a no-go for me.
GUYS! DONT MAKE ANY IN-APP PAYMENTS I have created a payment for 1 year subscription of AR view , but I can't use the service because it still says subscription . Lost my for no good! I raised a complaint but no use! The respond I received was " sorry, we cannot support you ! Ask the Google play people " Worst feedback ever
Amazing application to view skp. Files ..Almost works as pc sketchup just we can't create models in it .. it's only thing differs ... I'm sure sketchup will do improve that feature too soon in coming days to create minor model works in this android device ver sketchup..as im a student in university it is very useful for fast presentation ...thanking you again for this handy app ..
I’m fresh to 3D printing. This book was not really useful. The pictures aren’t clear and the instructions are beautiful vague as well. I flipped through this book in 20 min, really trying to search useful info, but I think a easy google find would yield far more useful info. The whole beginning of the book is a history of 3d printing. I bought this book for support with sketchup, not a history lesson.
This book rocks, it was exactly what I was looking for! If you have just the basics of SketchUp, Marcus takes you from a novice designer to someone who can design just about anything reasonable. Sure, there is more to learn outside this book, but it really hits on everything necessary to obtain you started and competent!To obtain the most out of the book, you'll wish to follow along with all exercises yourself. In the beginning of the book, Marcus holds your hand and provides info that create it simple to follow along. If you feel like you are stuck, stick with it as the instructions are very detailed. Understandably, as the book progresses, the instructions obtain a bit less detailed, but it ends up ensuring that the reader is building upon skills/techniques described earlier in the book.If you wish to learn how to design objects for 3D printing, you wish to read this book.
I was considering a 3D printing project, and this told it like it is, and thoroughly. Be warned, it does not tell you how to do SketchUp. I am already expert in SketchUp. To use this book, you do not have to be expert, but you do have to know your method around the software.
'3d Printing with SketchUp' by Marcus Ritland is a amazing resource for anyone who wants to learn about 3-D printing. It provided me with a amazing foundation to understand and appreciate the processes required to develop 3-D prints for my project, allowing me to print a prototype and prove the concept of my invention. I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning 3d printing and for anyone who wants to bring their project from conception to reality.
CAUTION: This book applies to GOOGLE's ver 7.1 of the SketchUp and not to the current Trimble "free" ver you can access online. Search a ver. 7.1 file online, it and use it. The website oldversion-dot-com ver the file "google-sketchup-7-1-6860-GoogleSketchUpWEN.exe" and I use it on a Windows 10 desktop is book is beautiful amazing as a reference but I have learned more via web searches for answers to questions and video tutorials. I wanted to fill the surface of an zone in a figure. The Index doesn't contain the word "fill" although it seems like a fairly common operation, at least to a beginner. I also wanted to rotate an object so it better aligned with another object. The Index contains two references to the rotate operation but I relied on a video that allow me see movements and use of the protractor in various ways. Thus the three-star rating. So, you might use this book part of the time, but it's not a getting-started tutorial. You'll learn a lot by jumping in and trying things. Just begin with a few boxes and cylinders and enjoy.
I have a 3d printer and required to learn a 3d drawing program to be able to design my own objects. I had never used a computer aided drawing program before, so I downloaded several to test my hand at using them. I have a technical degree but found that the insistence of the CAD programs to implement rules before I was done with my creation to be difficult to intuitively work around. I ordered this book because SketchUp was one of the programs I was evaluating for use. This book is over 500 pages long, but on page 139 I was able to design and print a 'seasonal' dryer vent cover (I created a separate screen to insert into the screen cover that can be rotated inside the main cover to change the size of the vent holes for each season). The book has created me unstoppable!In all seriousness, I do recommend that if you are fresh to CAD programs that you read each and every page rather than just test to search the first project to make something. If you skip around, you might miss fundamental instructions like which template designs in inches or spend an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out how to accomplish a easy task like how to adjust measurements, how to create sure the measurements are what you wish to start with, how to obtain rid of the annoying person standing in the middle of the drawing field, and is she really necessary? (I don't search her annoying anymore, the people standing in the frame are named after developers, and s/he isn't necessary). I really like this book and recommend it to anyone who will actually read it as a valuable manual. This book is what created my decision for me to use SketchUp for my 3d modeling. It has given me a lot of 'aha' moments and I am sure there are a lot of more to come in the next 400 pages.I did some homework on several other How To books on SketchUp, but I don't wish to draw a house. I wanted a manual that would leave me with a amazing foundation to make whatever I wanted. I found this book to be that manual. The instructions to export to stl for 3d printing are not mentioned in the manual, and with the fresh desktop 3d printers I hope the author will give it a nod in any future editions. For anyone modeling for 3d printing, the stl export is a add-on.
In general, this is a amazing book...way above the average.... it will be very helpful as a method to learn a very useful program--Sketchup but I regret to have to say that it comes up short, and for really dumb reasons....kinda like the "devil is in the details". I think the author needs to hook up with a better grade of proof readers (maybe some middle school teachers of computers or cad/cam ??) This book is probably the best we've got but so much less than it should be. If you wish to learn Sketchup (and every even semi-educated person should (its as primary a tool as Word, Excel or Photoshop) the book at the same time you the program.
"Getting Started" tool bar not found as illustrated, so primary navigation is off the tag in less than a dozen pages into this book. Even using SketchUp's find for terms does not return anything for "getting started toolbar". As a 'dummy' I was looking for accurate up-to-date matchup between book & current ver of program
As a fresh user on SketchUp, I'm using the on-line version. While this book does give a amazing primary begin to using it, I search it falling short of hitting the tag for the online version. I've found several times I've looked for instructions to do a specific task, but the menus are not the same as in the book. The online menus on SketchUp are so poorly laid out that a book is required to search the menu option to do a task. This book is small to no support for that (for online version). There are pictures of menus that do not exist on my ver of the software. Best I've been able to do is test hovering over ever icon until I search one that looks like it might work for the task I'm attempting. If that fails, I've had to Google the question and hope to search it that way.
