Introducing SketchUp 2013 . . .

 
Copy Array You know how SketchUp lets you easily create multiple copies of an object with your keyboard? Those are called arrays, and now LayOut lets you make them, too. Move a copy, type how many copies you want, type the letter ‘x’ and Enter. Presto! Presto! Presto! Presto! Presto! Copying is fun.



Curved Label Leader Lines Creating a jauntily curved callout line for a label used to be a five-step, two-handed operation:
Click. Click. Tool switch. Double-click. Click-drag-with-a-modifier-key.
In the latest version of LayOut, curving a label line goes like this:
Click-drag.
Isn’t progress something?


Dashes in Dimensions Ask the guy with the 86 foot ceiling if readable dimensions are important. It’s a little thing, but we added dashes to LayOut’s dimension labels to make them easier to read.





 
Faster Screen Redraw Every time you zoom, pan or move an entity on the page, LayOut has to re-draw the picture you see on your screen. For this version, we massaged the code so there’s a noticeable improvement in the speed at which this happens. LayOut should feel snappier, especially as your document gets more complex.

Introducing Extension Warehouse What if adding new extensions to SketchUp was as easy as installing an app on your smartphone? In 2013, we’ve made it dead simple to turn SketchUp into exactly what you need it to be. Need a special tool? There’s an excellent chance someone’s already built it. Now you can research, download and install extensions without ever having to leave SketchUp. Every useful extension in one place—that’s the all-new Extension Warehouse.
 
Numbered Pages in the Pages panel Another small but incredibly useful tweak: LayOut’s Pages panel now displays page numbers, which makes it easier to print and export portions of your document.





Pattern Fills Drawing a sectional view? Now you can fill shapes in LayOut with hatching and other patterns. Choose from a large library of standards—construction materials, geometric tiles, dot screens—or create your own favorites. Patterns can be rotated, scaled or used as-is. You can even combine Pattern Fills with solid colors to create an endless number of variations.
 
 
Smarter Toolbars in Windows It used to be that the toolbars for all of your delicious plugins would move around your screen between SketchUp sessions. We heard that drove you crazy, so we re-engineered our Windows UI to make things a whole lot better. In 2013, you can even drag native tool icons between toolbars. Make SketchUp look the way you want it to.

Speedier Vector Rendering When you need to print a drawing really big, sometimes it’s helpful to vector-render your SketchUp model views. Doing so makes lines look smooth and reduces wait times for all but the most complex models. In the latest version of LayOut, vector rendering is faster than it’s ever been.



Video Export Exporting high-quality animations from SketchUp 2013 is easier than ever. Using the default settings yields HD videos at 720p, encoded in any of the three most popular, modern formats: H.264, AVI and WebM. Picture quality is much better, and file sizes are smaller as well.



Zoom In More We increased LayOut’s maximum zoom capability by a factor of ten, from 1000% to 10,000%. At that magnification level, your sofa would be the size of Jupiter. Or thereabouts.

Featured Visualizer: Zernan Suarez
Some of us can still recognize these excellent images done in Vray SketchUp. Who could believe that most of these works were done with the old VraySU 1.05.33.Well, the man behind them is Zernan Suarez, aka "Zdesign". Zernan is one of the famous visualizer at http://www.cgpinoy.org/ using Google SketchUp and VraySU. I myself is a fan and  follower of  this man. I love the way he creates his scene with dramatic lighting. Zernan's is also a generous and regular contributor of excellent tutorials when it comes to visualization.

If you remember, this vray for sketchup rendered image is one of my entry in September 2010 Chaos Group Vray Render Contest and it's included in one of the pages of CatchUp – SketchUcation Community News – Edition 1
Thank you very much to sketchucation and the Daily Catchup
