2018 Skalp for SketchUp

Skalp has been designed and built as an easy to use yet powerful Live Section Tool. It represents the key missing features needed to realize a long standing dream: Create your stunning plans and elevations inside SketchUp.

 The Skalp development Team has its roots in architecture and 3D software, but that doesn't mean Skalp is for architects or Pro users only. SketchUp is being used in so many disciplines nowadays. Which is why we intended Skalp to be as 'generic' as possible. This means we do not want to change or disrupt your specific workflow. 

"We feel Skalp should just try to respect whatever and however you're doing in SketchUp and simply boost your ability to create superb drawings."

STAY AWAY!!!......UNLESS YOU LIKE LOSING WORK, NO UNDO OPTION TO YOUR MODELING, AND SEVERAL CRASHES THROUGH OUT THE DAY.

Just re-visiting, still no support and no fixes to the terrible release of 2018. I've evn asked for a refund the plug-in is sooooo faulty now, and still no reply. The support team, which used to be one guy named Guy, is now zero Guys.

Don't get me wrong, the idea of this program, especially the alternate materials in one section and the rear view projection is a strong concept, the plug-in or idea just needs to be sold to the sketch up team or someone that knows what their doing developer wise because this program just realeases more and more bugs with each update.

I used to think this was a fantastic product but after my experience they are a massive let down. DO NOT EXPECT ANY SUPPORT FROM THEM!

I have had an issue with this team for over 2 months, sent them several emails and also a couple via their website with no updates on their progress and no resolution! I have tweeted and posted on their Facebook page, with no response.

I now have a client that is irate because I cannot complete the project within the required timeframe because of a fault with their software.

Not being funny but I expect better when I pay for a product!

A good post to read. I am really thankful for the person for sharing this site and telling about the sketchup. It really helps me dealing with the client’s project and now you can get cheap essay from us. Keep sharing such post. I really love reading it and using it.

2018 does not work properly. I've used this plug-in professionally for 2 years now, but can no longer work with it due to the bizarre behavior and disfunction of the latest release. I've received only automated responses from the "maintenance and support" but no resolution. Skalp now overrides scenes we have set up that don't invlolve skalp at all, changes layer settings and camera setting. It also requires a manual click of the icon to update the section cut everytime you move a wall, very inconvenient. Was a good program when it work propoerly, but even 2017 would destroy models by randomly moving vertices and pulling crazy geometry from the model abut a mile out in model space, which forever ruined the model because undo would cause a software crash.
EACH RELEASE GETS MORE BUGS.

Thank you for the info in the article. I use SketchUp for a lot of client projects and have been thinking about trying Skalp with it, and after reading your blog I'm definitely going to!
