STX (Section Tool eXtended) allows you to create easy sections with individual depth easily and distinguishes between visible, cut and hidden elements. Sections can be exported as DXF or GLASER -isb cad-.

From 3D-model to construction drawings

GLASER STX offers the definition of any cut depth, provides convenient functions for individual treatment of the section drawings and optimises the export to GLASER  isb cad  (a leading German CAD-Software for construction engineering – www.isbcad.de) or into the DXF-format.
The software distinguishes between visible, cut and hidden elements and displays them in the preview with different colours. Elements not needed in the construction drawing, e.g. hidden edges, can be filtered. The same applies to 3D-layers for different components, which also can be exported. The result is a construction drawing perfectly tailored to your requirements which can immediately be passed to GLASER  isb cad  or saved in DXF-format.
Easily define any section planes with individual cutting depths and transfer them to GLASER  isb cad . Together with SketchUp Pro you can even use the world of BIM data (IFC) for further editing.


•    Creating unlimited sections in X-,Y- or Z-directions
•    Defining individual section depths directly in the 3D-model
•    Preview with group and layer selection
•    Transfer of section drawings directly to GLASER -isb cad-
•    Export of section drawings to DXF-File

The GLASER -isb cad- Programmsyteme GmbH is a leading German software company specialised in constructional engineering and architectural applications. With GLASER -isb cad-, a highly efficient CAD-System, the company has become competent partner for over 10.000 software users over the past 30 years.

GLASER STX automatically differentiates between visible, hidden and cut elements in the cut and displays them in the preview with different colors. Elements that are not needed in the design drawing, such as cut lines, can be faded out. The same applies to the layers derived from the 3D model for different assemblies.

Awesome ! Thanks

There are lots of software programs to try this. Some, like Blender and SketchUp are free. In the latter case there may be a model which is unfastened for non-business use. Of the 2, Blender is a whole lot extra powerful, however lots tougher to study and use. SketchUp by way of contrast is ridiculously smooth. As an architect, this is what we use for surely all our homes.

I once tried 3D-model to construction drawings, but failed. This will really help me.

Seriously awesome stuff mate!

I have 2016 version of Sketchup but it crashed many times, do you have any idea how can I resolve this problem?

Just trying to use this extension, and it worked alright until I tried to export my file to DXF, then all of a sudden I was told that I needed a license for the GLASER -isb cad-Programmsysteme GmbH for 4000 something. You didn´t mention this, did you. And in the trial version, one can´t export anything, one can only see the result, and this looked really fine. I am back on Square 1 again.

Al I want to do is to convert my skp files to dxf files so I can can upload them so they can used for cutting up parts. Are there other extensions for the same purpose and compatible with Sketchup
Up Make 2017?

Hi Göran,

Thank you for your inquiry.
You just need the plug-in STX from us and then the cuts can be set. The result can be given to the CAD system -isb cad- (entry price 2000, -) or to DXF (AutoCAD or similar). Do you need an offer?
