Driving Dimension – Google SketchUp Plugin

Filed under: Multimedia / Graphics

This is a really useful tool to provide dimensional control over your google sketchup projects.

Driving Dimensions is a plugin for Google SketchUp 6 and 7 (a free, easy-to-learn 3D-modeling program) running on Windows 2000/XP/Vista that allows the addition of driving dimensions to SketchUp models.

Using the tool you can modify the dimensions of an object to fit the measurements of real world objects. When you enter the size dimensions the object will take on that dimension without your need to modify it manually.

After a simple installation process (just run ldd_setup.exe and follow the instructions), run SketchUp and find a new toolbar with Driving Dimensions. The first time user can control the dimensions of shapes with no knowledge of variational design concept. Productivity can be enhanced by using different tools available with Driving Dimension plug-in.
