Once I comply with a few of 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 lately jumped into the world of CNC, I’m tempted to grasp 360 higher only for that goal. There are undoubtedly 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 stage exporting, so free options are extra restricted. If CNC was excessive in your listing, 360 does have extra devoted instruments.
If designing furnishings and planning your venture are your important functions, no shock that I’m undoubtedly within the camp that SU is quicker and higher for letting your mind wander via the design course of. You might be proper that in some areas, modifying geometry can change into tough in SU, and also you’ll begin to study strategies, somewhat than instruments. A quite common false impression I see, is that many individuals don’t notice with good picks of edges, after which utilizing the transfer device, you’ll be able to manipulate geometry rather well, the place many individuals assume it’s important to draw all of your advanced geometry over again.
In the long run, primary SketchUp is fairly simple to select up and use, however to actually change into proficient, takes time. Nice group although. ;).
