Google SketchUp 7.1 includes a batch of new features & functionality and bug fixes. Here's quick list:
•Large Model Handling make it easier to work with big models.
•Better File Exchange: SketchUp 7.1 can import and export COLLADA and KMZ files.
•LayOut 2.1 now includes a simple but surprisingly powerful tool for dimensioning models and creating dimensioned drawings.
•Modeling in Context include:
- Get Photo Texture gives you direct access to Google Maps Street View imagery from right inside SketchUp.
- Nearby Models lets you use the Component Browser to search the 3D Warehouse for buildings located near the one you're working on.
- Upload Component provides a shortcut for uploading parts of your model to the 3D Warehouse without having to save them out as separate files first.
