Hey gays

basically i am using ArchiCAD for 3D modeling and rendering, my question is do i need to use sketchup to gain an advantage over other archicad users those at the same level of mine.
will it give me more freedom to edit and deal with 3Ds comparing with before ?

Thanks

First of all, it is not polite to address us all as "Hey gays". Laughing
I forgive the typo. guys is probably what you meant.

Anyway, no I don't think it is necessary to have Sketchup. I don't use it and I never think to myself that I wish I had it. I do however, like to use .skp files in ArchiCAD and the ability to save objects as .skp files.

But mine is just one opinion. What would you like to use it for if you have ArchiCAD?

I used to use it before AC16 (I used other cad programs then)
As soon as i started using Archicad with the Morph tool it was goodbye Sketchup Laughing

I used to download a demo version that would last 90 days I think. Then tell them I need more time since I didn't get to use it much:) When the demo ran out I would just download another copy with a different email address. I had a current copy of it on my computer for many years and never need to buy it. Now I don't bother. It is not something I would use any more.
