Sketchup is very loose to enjoyment at one time you acquire the bent of it. Sometimes it's fair a doubt of cerebration exterior the box! Matchless trouble is that I demand to bring forth an ASE file cabinet and it lonesome does SKP and KML formats. Is there either a converter or a interchangeable course of study which testament give ASE format?
Even better, nonpareil which volition issue SKP or KML comment and save me redesigning my project!

Many thanks,

I'm in a weird attitude on the alternatives here.

Initially, I concord with a bunch of the comments on Liquidizer that it and sketchup are in deuce Rattling different categories of 3d growing suite. Blender is the massive ball of fire for pros, sketchup is the 3d blueprint equivilent of microsoft paint.

Comparing the deuce is comparable suggesting Photoshop as an alternate to MS Paint, the former good being also a good deal of a accomplishment floor jump to be considered a executable alternative.

That said, thither IS an addon (that includes book of instructions on how to establish it) located here: .

It basically includes the burden simpleton tools corresponding those of sketchup into Blender, fashioning Liquidiser Completely able of "stupid simple" 3d conception same sketchup (and at a a great deal lower pricetag... the addon is only astir 20 bucks to broaden an candid beginning curriculum as opposed to the $700-$900 price-tag essential to do anything with sketchup commercially.)

WITH the addon, I'd allege liquidizer moves from not beingness an substitute to sketchup to existence THE alternative to sketchup (and higher-up to sketchup at that, as you do hush rich person access to all the thomas more complex tools erst you eventually indigence them.) In fact, I'd go so army for the liberation of rwanda to articulate that I choose Blender with the addon over both sketchup AND all over 3DstudioMax (with a few more than addons), moving Liquidiser to the acme of the ease/capability charts for a 3D editor.


"moving Liquidizer to the big top of the ease/capability charts for a 3D editor."

Sorry, Blender's port does not admit it to motility to the circus tent of whatever "ease of use" charts. It deeds capital for about and is a botch-job for others.

They are indeed Real different categories of 3D growth tools. But not for the cause you mention. They are different because they address a different band of problems, not because one and only is simpler than the other. Of course, Blender allows you to define composite shadings, fashion model smooth shapes, and deliver ultra-realistic scenes, which Sketchup can't.
But you don't motivation that at all when you are an architect, or when you motive to design a technical part/assembly. What you need in this case is to efficently and accurately home the elements against each other, commonly with approximately geometric constraints. For example, you moldiness ascertain that this particular breaker point of this component is located incisively at the crisscross of this aeroplane and this complex number line, itself defined by those deuce points, etc... And you will also pauperism to amount things all the time, finally aspect things done a department cut, etc... And I know of no other dick that does it to a greater extent efficiently than Sketchup.
I whish there was an open-source combining weight os Sketchup, but thither actually isn't. Because, although I acknowledge Blender, I wouldn't exercise it to designing a technical foul assembly.
