SketchUp Basecamp 2016
Despite being the most widely used 3d-modeling program (35 million unique activations per year) SketchUp has been limited by it’s reliance on the Windows or Mac operating system…until now. Basecamp 2016 saw the unveiling of my.SketchUp.com, a complete 3d modeling environment inside a web browser. The new interface has pop up icons which streamline the toolbar significantly with drawing tools (Arc, Push/Pull, Tape Measure) on the left and windows (Layers, Materials and Scenes) on the right.
Biggest plus: Runs on any modern web browser—hello Chromebooks!
Biggest minus: No ability to set personalized hotkeys (yet).
