In this article, we will review some of the new features and improvements that were introduced in the latest update of SketchUp Pro 2017, version 17.3.116, which was released on September 21, 2017. This update mainly focused on fixing some issues and enhancing the performance of SketchUp Pro 2017 on Mac OS High Sierra (10.13).


Graphics Pipeline




One of the biggest changes that SketchUp Pro 2017 brought was a complete overhaul of the graphics pipeline, which is the way SketchUp displays models on the screen. This change allowed SketchUp to support higher quality graphics, faster rendering, and smoother navigation.


However, this change also required stricter hardware and software requirements than previous versions of SketchUp. To run SketchUp Pro 2017, you will need:


  • A 64-bit operating system.



  • A graphics card that supports OpenGL 3.0 or above.



  • A graphics card that supports Hardware Acceleration.



  • A graphics card that passes a series of tests that are run by SketchUp Pro 2017 to ensure that your card is capable of rendering SketchUp models.



If your machine does not meet these requirements, you will see an error dialog when launching SketchUp Pro 2017, LayOut, Style Builder, and Viewer that lets you know which requirement you did not meet and which will prevent you from running SketchUp until you fix the error.


If you see this error dialog, try upgrading your graphics card driver - upgrading your driver is a good first troubleshooting step and often solves the error.


High DPI Support for the Modeling Window




The SketchUp Pro 2017 modeling window is now "DPI aware", which means that it can scale the content in the modeling window according to the resolution of your monitor. This feature allows you to see your models more clearly and with more details.


This feature also includes larger, scaled inference graphics and linework and updates to the inference icons.


Extension Manager




The Extension Manager is the new way to manage how extensions interact with SketchUp Pro 2017. Extensions are add-ons that enhance the functionality of SketchUp by adding new tools, features, or workflows.


With the Extension Manager, you can install, uninstall, enable, disable and update extensions from a single dialog. You can also set your extension loading policy through this dialog, which determines how extensions are loaded when you start SketchUp.


The Extension Manager replaces the extension and extension loading policy areas previously found within the System Preferences dialog.


The Extension Manager can be found within the Window menu on both Windows and Mac.


Tool and Inference Improvements




SketchUp Pro 2017 also improved some of its core modeling tools and inferencing system. Inferencing is the way SketchUp helps you draw accurately by snapping to points, edges, faces, or axes.


Here are some of the tool and inference improvements that were introduced in SketchUp Pro 2017:


  • Improved Offset tool: Previously the Offset tool would create overlapping or self-intersecting geometry. The new Offset tool automatically trims these overlaps to create clean boundaries with no overlaps. The old functionality is still available via a modifier key.



  • Rectangle tool plane and shape locking: The Rectangle tool now works with arrow keys to lock the plane normal to an axis or surface. You can also use arrow keys to lock the shape of the rectangle to a square or a golden section.



  • Rotated Rectangle tool inference locking: The Rotated Rectangle tool now works with arrow keys to lock the rotation angle to a multiple of 15 degrees.



  • Circle tool inference locking: The Circle tool now works with arrow keys to lock the radius or number of sides of the circle.



  • Polygon tool inference locking: The Polygon tool now works with arrow keys to lock the radius or number of sides of the polygon.



  • Move tool auto-fold: The Move tool now automatically folds faces along edges when you move a vertex. This feature allows you to create complex shapes without breaking the geometry.



  • Eraser tool soften/smooth: The Eraser tool now works with modifier keys to soften or smooth edges. You can also use the Eraser tool to hide or unhide edges.



Conclusion




SketchUp Pro 2017 17.3.116 is a great update that fixes some issues and enhances the performance of SketchUp Pro 2017 on Mac OS High Sierra (10.13). It also introduces some new features and improvements that make SketchUp Pro 2017 more powerful, user-friendly, and fun to use.
