SketchUp Pro 2018 released! SketchUp Make has been canceled and a new SketchUp Free web app has been released.

 

Download the current version of SketchUp Make 2017 while you can and you might want to save the install file somewhere as a backup ;)

 

Perhaps AutoDesk will buy SketchUp after Trimble runs it into the ground.

 

Edit: Download link

Havent try yet but seems like the biggest feature is the "section cut hatch" however it is not too attractive to our team as our workflow is to export dwg from skp.

 

One feature says they re write the dwg import function, whats wrong the previous one (didnt encounter any problem) ??

From the Sketchup Help Center: https://help.sketchup.com/en/article/141303

DWG Importer The DWG Importer has been rewritten using our own C API. The goal is that the new dwg importer will work exactly the same as the 2017 version (improvements can come at a later time, now that we have code we can update and maintain more easily!). Ideally all files that imported previously will continue to import in 2018 and hopefully some files that used to fail on import will now import correctly.

 

It sounds like they recoded the importer using their own programmers instead of using the code that was presumably carried over from back when Sketchup was owned by Google. Same importer, different coding.

It was probably the original dwg importer from the @Last (original developers) days. SketchUp had dwg import before Google bought them.

Is SketchUp Free app completely free or does it have certain features locked behind a pay wall?

So far it is free. I would imagine that pay-wall features are coming.
