Remove Unnecessary Coplanar Edges with CleanUp - a SketchUp Extension
As mentioned in my previous blog post, there are hundreds of extensions - tools and features - integrated directly into SketchUp Pro which improve conceptual design modelling workflows and reduce time-consuming, complex or repetitive processes.
I thought I would list my recommendation of the very basic SketchUp extensions which I’m sure your Conceptual Design Modelling Teams and Users will find useful. In the first blog post, I presented Weld - an extension which joins connected edges and broken lines into one continuous polyline.
Here is my second extension recommendation:
A superb plugin to remove unnecessary coplanar edges and clean up imported geometry. This SketchUp extension can also be used to:
- Fix duplicate component definition names (when in model scope)
- Purge unused items
- Erase hidden geometry
- Erase duplicate faces
- Erase lonely edges (except edges on cut plane)
- Remove edge material
- Repair split edges
- Smooth and soften edges
- Put edges and faces to Layer0
- Merge identical materials
- Merge connected co-planar faces
The CleanUp SketchUp extension is perfect for the following industries:
Architecture, Construction, Education, Engineering, Film & Stage, Gaming, Heavy Civil, Interior Design, Kitchen & Bath, Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning, Woodworking
Watch a demonstration of CleanUp below.
Look out for SketchUp Extension recommendation number 3 which will be posted shortly. In the meantime, you can explore other SketchUp plugins here.
