Using inspiration from Matthew Nicholl's 2018 3D Basecamp presentation, we give you a few tips on how to optimize your large SketchUp model to prevent it from being too slow while you are working on it. Follow along as we show you how a couple of quick changes to your settings will have a drastic effect on your model's performance.

We're excited to announce we've enhanced SketchUp & LayOut for 2019. We've worked hard to update our top features, so see what's new for our 2019 update.
Sefaira's building analysis software solution enables architects and building engineers to create designs that use less energy for HVAC systems.
For architects, getting your degree simply is the beginning of a difficult journey of achieving a career as an Architect. Here's Adam Osterhoff's experience.
As more architects aim to create energy efficient, carbon neutral, and even net-positive energy buildings, they are analyzing the energy, daylight, and carbon performance of their designs as early and
One of the things that customers love about Sefaira’s daylight application is the speed of analysis. Most models, even quite large ones, can be set up to return results within a minute.
