I'd rather use REVIT than to waste my money into it.

As a user of Revit since its inception, before it was purchased by autodesk, I can only say i will celebrate loudly and clearly the day i can walk away from it and wash my hands clean. I LONG for common sense tools that reflect the way things are actually built, and i dislike very much being constrained. Revit, for all of its "greatness", will never be a great design tool. Everything is so right angle and over constrained... I am hoping that Dibac is a step in the right direction for the construction industry side of SU, and that soon, we will be able to build a bim solution from the components available for sketchup. (I habe been waiting a very long time though)

As far as this type of hit and run critique, i can only add, if your first impulse is to bash something you are not capable of producing, or at least capable of making a cogent argument about ( commenting on to make better), better to just zip it pal. At least Dibac and it's people are responding and caring what real users have to say.

Hello Carlos,

SketchUp and Revit are different softwares with different characteristics. Dibac is a SketchUp tool focused to enhance some of its features and functions in a very efficient way.

Nevertheless, sorry if we couldnt meet your expectations.

Kind regards,

may i ask if it works on sketch up 2014 ?

Iscarnet's picture

Yes, you can download the trial version directly from our website and check it out yourself.

If you have any problems do not hesitate to get in contact with us through our support email address: support@dibac.com

may i ask if it works on sketch up 2014 ?

Had several questions regarding Dibac and wanted to ask prior to downloading. We are general contractors interested in how we would use it in estimating where our primary focus is generating a bill of materials (BOM)/quantity survey "quickly" and then associating costs. - 01- Can walls be drawn by selecting the tool and clicking where you want the start/end points (like "tracing" a .pdf) instead of haveing to click start then inputting length? - 02 - Is it possible to identify items in a component and generate a BOM report within Dibec? - 03 - Can components be built within Dibec, say several different types of walls or concrete slabs with rebar? - 04 - how are applied finishes identified and placed into drawing using Dibec, especially those with linear foor (lf) as the primary unit of take off? It looks promising from watching the video's but it's hard to tell. Thanks.

Thank your for your interest in Dibac.

I´ll quickly answer your questions:

1. Yes. You have a lot of flexibility to draw and edit the walls with Dibac.

2. The components used in Dibac are SketchUp components. The only difference is that Dibac inserts them in 2D in our floor-plan. Therefore the components will keep the same information we have given them in SketchUp. Dynamic components are also compatible with Dibac and the plugin shows all of their attributes when selected.

3. As mentioned before, Dibac just shows a 2D representation of our SketchUp built components. Of course, afterwards they can be converted to 3D with the walls of our project. The only thing we can edit within Dibac is the 2D representation (2D symbol) of our components and joinery.
Regarding the wall, Dibac only has one type. The materials and details (rebars) can be defined after you create the geometry of the wall with Dibac.

4. To work well with Dibac you need to represent all the finishes within the 2D view. Dibac always creates in 2D and then converts to 3D, doesnt work the other way around.

Hope this helps. I recommend you to download the trial version (16 hours of use) and try with one of your projects to find out if this is an useful tool for you.

We have available an user manual and some video tutorials in our website to learn all of Dibac´s features and tools: www.dibac.com

If you have any further questions please send us an email to support@dibac.com

Kind regards,

Can Dibac draw in feet and inches?

Iscarnet's picture

Hello Eddie,

Dibac draws with the same units you have established in SketchUp.

You just have to select the desired units in SketchUp preferences.

Kind regards,


Does this work with sketchup trial or is it made for pro only?

Iscarnet's picture

Hello Petra,

Dibac is compatible with the trial and Pro version of SketchUp 2014, 2015 and 2016, and also with SketchUp Make.

Best regards,


Tanarat T.'s picture

My comp. is Macbook. Use SketchUppro 2015 V.15.3.329. My Old Dibac V.2015.28 But I cannot Remove. I just buy V2015 now I Can not installe new Dibac and My Plugin folder have no Dibac or iscar file. can you help to remove old vertion and installe new vertion please

Iscarnet's picture

Hello Tanarat,

I have already replied to your email.

To remove Dibac from your computer you need to go to:

Windows – the default location is: C:/Users/YOUR USERNAME/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp #/SketchUp/Plugins

Mac OS X – the default location is: Open a new Finder window, press and hold the "Option" key on your keyboard, the click Go in the menu bar > Library > Application Support > SketchUp # > SketchUp > Plugins

And in that folder you need to delete both the ‘iscarnet_dibac‘ folder and the ‘iscarnet_dibac.rb‘ file.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I purchased their product, Solid Section.

I found Solid Section to be a really useful tool.

I initially had some difficulties with getting my license authorized. Perhaps because I'm using the latest Sketchup Pro and El Capitan.

Juan was very helpful and went the extra mile to fix things. Customer service was faultless. He answered emails promptly.


Iscarnet - jc's picture

Thanks for your purchase and your kind feedback.



Valentin B's picture

no hay manera de conseguir mas muebles?

Javier BC's picture

Puedes descargar todos los componentes que quieras y usarlos desde el icono "Componentes", el botón es una mesa con 4 sillas. La ventaja es que también usarlos en versión 2D y 3D como los que trae de serie el PLUGIN.

What about attic floors? Is it possible to do it automatically?

Iscarnet's picture

Hi Андрей М.

Thanks for your comment. I am sorry I don't understand exactly what you mean with attic floors. Did you mean roofs? Dibac doesn't draw roofs yet. Maybe for future versions but not 100% sure.

Hi shah Z.,

I am sorry for the late reply. These errors show up in the ruby console right after you launch SketchUp?

Please make sure you are using the latest version of Dibac 2015 (2015.32). If not, please download the latest version at www.dibac.com/download and make a fresh install.

Here you can find instructions about uninstalling our extension: www.dibac.com/support


Gert S.'s picture

Can you confirm when you make this 2016 compatible. On my MAC OS the Sketchup 2016 Version crashes as soon as I try to activate DIBAC.

Thank you very much!

Iscarnet - jc's picture


Thanks for your comment.

Dibac is compatible with SketchUp 2016. However, a specific installation file (rbz) is needed to avoid crashes and bugs.

Remove the plugin from your computer following these steps: http://www.dibac.com/support/#uninstall-instructions

Now download the latest version of Dibac from our website: http://www.dibac.com/

Install the extension as usual and authorize again.

Let me know if this fixes your problem.

Kind regards,

Ar. Nitin Sharma's picture


I am Ar. Nitin Sharma, having Dibac License of version 1.0.16 and I wish to upgrade it to DIBAC 2015, as mentioned on your Support Page of your website, where it says it costs Euro 20.

However, there is no place/ page on your entire website offering the upgrade option. I wonder how the many users of previous version of Dibac are upgrading their versions without your providing them this very basic option on your website.

As mentioned on your support page I wrote an email to info@iscarnet.com but I have not received any reply fro you so far. This doesn't speak very high about after sales support please !

My email address is ans.3dads@gmail.com. For obvious reason I cannot mention my license number here. I will appreciate your contacting me on how to upgrade to the latest version and HOW TO MAKE THE PAYMENT TO YOU please.

A swift and expeditious action on your part is highly solicited.

Ar. Nitin Sharma

Iscarnet's picture

Dear Ar. Nitin S,

We appreciate your request but please understand that we process our email as soon as possible, but some times it takes more than an hour. Thank you for your understanding.

We already sent you an email with a link for upgrading your Dibac copy to the latest version. Please let me know if you received it.


AF F.'s picture

thanks for this plug in.
i installed a trail version of dibac in sketchup8,but although it told me (successfuly installed), it is not in any meno,toolbar,etc.
i checked in window/refrences/extentions, it s name is there
please help me.

Apps D's picture

Hi AF F, click WINDOW ----> click PREFERENCE then click INSTALL EXTENSION

Iscarnet's picture


I am afraid '2015 Dibac for SketchUp' is not compatible with SketchUp 8. It is only compatible with SketchUp 2015 and 2014.

You would need to upgrade your SketchUp version.

Best regards,

Steve Innes Concept Designer's picture

I have the purchased the Dibac 2015 for mac for SU 2015 and it keeps crashing SU whilst trying to copy a wall in parallel I can do a few then the wall won't move and the beach ball starts to spin.

Also when I erase the walls as on the videos with eraser tool it fills the back ground and does not repair the intersecting wall. Man after buying the 2014 version which was less than good performance. I stupidly bought the 2015 version and it's no more reliable. I have trashed any old plug ins for Dibac and done a fresh install bt it's still very buggy on a Mac and with no decent support page I can learn nothing about this product.

The concept is great on what it can do but so far on a Mac its awefully unreliable and keeps crashing.

Iscarnet's picture

Hello Steve,

Sorry to hear you are having problems with our plugin. We are here to help you.

Please tell us which Mac OS version you have and please send us any file you are having problems with and give us detailed instructions on how to reproduce the issues. (email: support@dibac.com)

We are trying to reproduce them as you describe with no luck. We are on a MacBook Pro with Yosemite 10.10.3 ; SketchUp Pro 2015 15.3.329 and the latest version of Dibac 2015.

Hello Ahmed,

To download a trial version of 'Dibac for Sketchup' please go to www.dibac.com


Ahmed K's picture

still not working

Iscarnet's picture

Hi Ahmed,

OK that's odd. We just checked and the link is working properly. Make sure you are downloading from:

And then please click on the button that says "DOWNLOAD FREE TRIAL VERSION" the download of the .RBZ file will start automatically

Once downloaded please follow the instructions you will find at: www.dibac.com/support

Please let me know if that works.


Antony S.'s picture

Can you change the default width of the wall?

Iscarnet's picture

Hi Antony. Thanks for your comment!

Dibac will start with a default width for walls. But you can change that value on the fly by typing a width distance with your keyboard and hitting enter. You will see the width changes in the Value Box (at the right bottom corner).

Dibac will always remember the last value you used, even if you close and reopen SketchUp.

Also you can use the eyedropper tool to pick up widths from other walls.
