3 great tools for SketchUp
Dave Richards is doing a lot of teaching these days. In this blog, he shares some tools his students have found extremely valuable.
These days I’ve been doing a lot more online SketchUp instruction. I suppose more folks have time to devote to it. Anyway, several of my students have had use for some tools I find extremely valuable. I thought I’d share them with you, too. A couple of them are fairly new versions of ones that have been around for awhile. They are by Fredo6, the author of a number of amazing extensions for SketchUp.
The first is called FredoCorner. This is a revised version of his old Round Corner and has several useful additions. Another one of his, which was released in the last week of April or so, is called FredoSpline. It is a reworked version of his Bezier Spline tool set and again he’s added a number of features. In my video, I show just a little of what these tools can do. By the way, if you are installing these extensions, make sure you also install the latest version of LibFredo6. This is a set of required support files that are common to most of his extensions. LibFredo6 also adds some tools for checking his extensions for updates and setting up toolbar preferences.
The third tool is by another prolific extension author who goes by the name of Eneroth3. It is called Eneroth Auto Weld. While this one is priced at $10, it could pay for itself in short order depending on the type of modeling you do. I find it indispensable for my work.
The video gives a brief look at these tools and I hope you can add them into your workflow.
Keep well, everyone.
