Once I observe among the discussions on the market on 360, a typical time period that might be thrown round is ‘parametric’ modeling. I imply, ya, it’s tremendous cool, however the setup appears so overkill for 95% of tasks.
Having just lately jumped into the world of CNC, I’m tempted to know 360 higher only for that goal. There are positively methods to go from SketchUp to CNC, together with Fabber – a plugin only for that goal, nevertheless, different strategies in my expertise are likely to depend on SU Professional degree exporting, so free options are extra restricted. If CNC was excessive in your record, 360 does have extra devoted instruments.
If designing furnishings and planning your challenge are your major functions, no shock that I’m positively within the camp that SU is quicker and higher for letting your mind wander by way of the design course of. You’re proper that in some areas, modifying geometry can change into troublesome in SU, and also you’ll begin to be taught strategies, somewhat than instruments. A quite common false impression I see, is that many individuals don’t understand with good picks of edges, after which utilizing the transfer instrument, you may manipulate geometry rather well, the place many individuals suppose it’s a must to draw all of your complicated geometry over again.
Ultimately, primary SketchUp is fairly simple to select up and use, however to essentially change into proficient, takes time. Nice group although. ;).
