What’s New in SketchUp Pro for Desktop?

Welcome Panel (SketchUp Pro for Desktop + LayOut)

We’ve made some updates to our Files, Learn, and Licensing tabs to make it easier to manage projects and licenses. While we were at it, we added links to learning resources directly into SketchUp and LayOut.

Files tab: When you launch SketchUp or LayOut, you’ll see a Files panel where you can manage default templates and access new, recent and recovered files. To change to a different template when opening a new file, select the “New From Template” option in the File pulldown menu.

Learn tab: We are introducing a new portal for training content, appropriately named, the SketchUp Campus. This is the hub for both beginner and advanced learning through video courses that will eventually cover the entire SketchUp family and many professional industry work flows.

Licensing tab: You can still easily access your licensing information from within SketchUp and LayOut. When you select the licensing tab, you can choose to view either your classic license or subscription information.

Default Toolbar Changes

We’ve made some new updates to the toolbars in SketchUp Pro and LayOut. You’ll notice a “My Account” icon in the top upper-right hand side of the screen. Here, you can access your licensing information, sign in and sign out.

Dashes

Solid lines don’t always tell the full story. Sometimes you need a dash pattern to convey your design idea. Whether you need to demarcate a property boundary, identify what is proposed, or identify walls for demolition, adding a stipple might be your best solution.

Supported Dashes in SketchUp (imperial and metric equivalents
Supported Dashes in SketchUp (imperial and metric equivalents

That’s why we’ve incorporated dashed lines into SketchUp Pro 2019. These dashes are properties of Layers and can be controlled from the Layers panel. Even better, components on layers will inherit the dash pattern. In LayOut, your dashes will show in the viewport at any screen scale and in all render modes with the ability to edit the dash width and scale.

When you’re ready to export, SketchUp can convert your dashed pattern into a bunch of file formats: PDF, EPS (vector), images (raster), and DWG/DXF.

SketchUp Tape Measure Tool

Upgrades to the Tape Measure tool mean less time you’ll spend opening up Entity Info or looking at the Measurements box. Now, you can get the length of edges, area of faces, and coordinates of midpoints and intersections straight from an inference tip.

Compatibility Mode for Windows 10

It is no longer necessary to run SketchUp in compatibility mode. Compatibility mode was employed for several SketchUp releases as a workaround for problems with older Intel HD 2000 and HD 3000 GPUs on Windows 10. These GPUs have been deprecated by Intel on Windows 10 and because this workaround introduced problems of its own, it has been removed. As a result SketchUp, LayOut, and Style Builder will no longer run with Intel HD 2000 and HD 3000 GPUs on Windows 10.

Support for macOS Mojave

Our QA team has smashed and banged on Apple’s newest operating system, macOS Mojave, enough to say that SketchUp 2019 is fully compatible.

What’s New in LayOut?

LayOut File Locking

We’ve made it harder to overwrite your LayOut files with unintentional edits. If you have multiple people working in the same file or if you’ve opened a file in two separate LayOut instances, we’ll temporarily lock your file and let you know it’s “read only.” Simple.

SketchUp Dashes Control

With the introduction of Dashes in SketchUp, LayOut now has the ability to modify how those lines styles are displayed. With the SketchUp model viewport selected, the SketchUp Model inspector will allow for modification.

Export for SketchUp feature

SketchUp has always played nice with others. We’ve been hard at work making it even easier for you to move between the software you need. In LayOut we have added a ‘Export for SketchUp’ feature to the DWG/DXF exporter that places all LayOut entities into the Model Space so that SketchUp can now ‘play’ with all LayOut data. As part of this feature Groups are sent over as SketchUp Components, Fills and Patterns are sent over as SketchUp faces for easy Push/Pull’n.

Mouse Scroll Speed Controller

We now provide users the ability set their mouse scroll speed within LayOut. With so many variances in systems, this is a helpful way to improve your LayOut experience.

Bug Fixes/Small Improvements in LayOut and Style Builder

In addition to the above, we’ve been heads down fixing bugs and adding some smaller features:

Stability
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when rendering or re-rendering a SketchUp viewport in LayOut using Vector or Hybrid mode.
  • We had an issue where LayOut could lose the association to file references (SketchUp models and images). We found this to be related to the users temp folder being removed or over written possibly by an anti-virus utility or disk clean up process. This seemed to be most obvious when a copy paste was used to import files. To remedy this we have moved the active working file outside of your system temp folder.

    Your working LayOut files will now exist in the following location:

    Windows: c:\Users\<username>\AppData\local\SketchUp\SketchUp 2019\LayOut\working

    Mac: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/SketchUp 2019/LayOut/working

SketchUp and LayOut API Release Notes

Upgrade to Ruby 2.5.1

We have upgraded from Ruby 2.2.4 to Ruby 2.5.1. These upgrades tend to introduce subtle changes to the Ruby language that sometimes are difficult for us to find in our internal testing. Our testing has not found any major compatibility issues between Ruby 2.2.4 and the new 2.5.1 and we expect the upgrade for most developers should be relatively straightforward.

Dashes

Stipples and dots and dotted stipples, oh my! SketchUp has added a Dashes feature that allows for unique line styles to be applied and controlled at the Layer level. We have exposed this new feature in the Ruby and C APIs. See the Improvements and Fixes sections of each API for a list of classes and methods we’ve added. See the documentation for each API for complete documentation on how to use these features.

Materials Bug Fixes and Improvements

The Extensibility team has done some code refactoring around how materials are named, created, and duplicated in both the UI and in the core SketchUp code. The main change that will be visible to developers is that we fixed a bug that was introduced in SketchUp 2018 where if Ruby tried to name a material to its current name ie: material.name = material.name it would fail, which was unexpected and unnecessary. There was also a bug where fetching a material by using its string name could fail due to a syncing error in the internally cached list of materials. We improved it so that scenario no longer fails. We also did some other code cleanup around disallowing duplicate material names via the UI which should not affect the Ruby API.

InstancePath Support for Dimensions and Text

In SketchUp 2019 we have added InstancePath support to our existing DimensionLinear and Text classes. Now when creating a Linear Dimension, or an attached Text object, you can attach it to a nested entity by providing a valid InstancePath object, or an array version of an instance path. This will allow you to create a dimension in model space, but attach it to a valid nested entity. The linear dimension or text will then be attached to that entity, exactly how it is when linear dimensions and text are created via the UI.

Ruby API Breaking Changes
  • SketchUp changed how it presents units. Now it adds a space between the number and the unit indicator. If your extension uses a method of your own creation to interpret strings formatted by SketchUp you might find it doesn't work anymore if you don't account for the extra space. For example:
    • Before 2019: "2.5mm"
    • Now in 2019: "2.5 mm"
  • Ruby Version Upgrade - Ruby 2.5 removed the method: Dir::Tmpname.make_tmpname If you were using that method, you will need to find an alternative
  • Entity.delete_attribute no longer returns “true” when attempting to delete a non-existing dictionary key
