Help us hack our maker bench! We're designing an open sourced CNC made bench for students, teachers, hackers and makers. We'll take your ideas, build a real CNC made table, and then open source the entire project so that anyone can build one of these tables.Read More
That's right! The latest and greatest version of SketchUp is here for all to download. Here are some of the headlines on new features:
SketchUp is now 64 bit
Face Finder is improved
3 Point Arc Tool
Rotated Rectangle (Awesome!)
Spell checking finally comes to Windows (8 and later only)
Tons of speed improvements and bug fixes
New label tools
If you want to dig deep, you can read the release notes here.
We'll be going over more of these improvements and tools soon. For now, go get 2015!
It's being reported that Trimble, the company that owns Sketchup bought Frank Gehry's technology firm.
This should be interesting for Trimble's building technology arm. Even more interesting on how this could affect Sketchup's development.
We'll let you know more as we learn it!
If you've been keeping track, you might have noticed that I've been rather absent for nearly the entire month of April. I've been on many trips. Most of which forced me to be entirely off the grid. It's going to take several blog posts to cover them all, but to kick it off I want to start with my most favorite trip this month, and ever for that matter. I was lucky enough to be selected as a member of Blog Tour Italy. This trip wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the generosity of Modenus and our sponsors:
The amount of awesome I experienced on this trip cannot be summed up in one post. So to kick things off, I'll just give you a photo taste of what went on in Italy:
In the coming days I will be sharing details about each and every stop. My camera worked overtime so expect a LOT of pictures as well.
And last but certainly not least, the NKBA was there in personal support of our trip. While I don't have a drool worthy picture of the NKBA let me just say that it was very forward looking of them to be at the show. I've been a long time member of the NKBA and I was very excited to see them there.
Thanks to the folks over at Modenus for graciously inviting me on this trip. We will be touring Eurocucina, a large kitchen and bath show. This will be my first time at this show. Stay tuned here for coverage under #BlogTourMilan
Where is Eurocucina? Italy. I'll be stopping in Venice first and then heading on to the show in Milan.
Maybe I'll get to drive some old Italian sports cars...
