Does ConDoc work with Metric and Imperial Units?

Yes! All of the ConDoc Tools and scrapbooks work easily with both Metric and Imperial Units.

Which Versions of SketchUp is ConDoc compatible with?

The ConDoc Tools are fully compatible with SketchUp 2015, SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017, and SketchUp 2018. The ConDoc Tools were developed for SketchUp 2014, the first year SketchUp switched to Ruby 2.0. ConDoc Tools will not work on versions of SketchUp prior to 2014. If you are on SketchUp 2018 make sure you use the 2018 template.

Are the ConDoc Tools compatible with Windows and Mac?

Yes, ConDoc for SketchUp Pro is fully functional running on both Windows and Apple operating systems and hardware.

Why are the ConDoc Tools a subscription?

We are a lean team of 3d modelers, writers, and software evangelists specializing in SketchUp.  On any given day we wear a lot of hats.  In our experience, a pay for upgrade model turns us back into salesmen for every new release, update, and new idea.   We would much rather focus on keeping the tools valuable and be motivated to keep the tools updated with new versions rather than selling single upgrades.

Do you offer a pro trial?

We do not offer a full pro trial.  ConDoc takes some effort to fully understand and implement the system.  We prefer that you use the simple Perspective Tool on our demo models to realize the value.  If you can realize the value of automating perspective scenes, you will be blown away by the increased productivity with the rest of the tools.

How does this system compare to other methods for creating construction documents?

There is really nothing else like ConDoc on the market.  The ConDoc Tools offers a comprehensive system, a clear and concise path for learning, as well as all necessary templates, tools, extensions, and scrapbooks to get started creating construction documents in SketchUp Pro today.  Included in the Pro subscription is access to all of the learning resources that will take you from SketchUp beginner to ConDoc Pro.  The ConDoc system is truly SketchUp standards.

What would happen if ConDoc stopped being developed?

If we stop developing, you will always have access to continue your subscription.

What is the best way to learn the system?

Read “The SketchUp Workflow for Architecture” from front to back, watch SketchUp 101 and 201, then watch every single tutorial on the ConDoc support page.  Follow our path for learning and you will grow from SketchUp novice to ConDoc Pro in no time at all!

What project types/sizes are best leveraged with ConDoc?

ConDoc is useful for automating clicks and providing standards on any scope and type of project, from a shed to a skyscraper.  It seems that many use ConDoc for creating construction documents on residential and light commercial projects, and design drawings on bigger projects.

Can I use my own layers?

I have thought through and discussed every layer included in the ConDoc system.  I don’t take adding or deleting layers lightly!  For design trades, you have a place for everything.  With that said, you can add your own custom layers…  but you better master the system first!

How many computers can I install ConDoc on?

Each license comes with 3 activations, if you have more than 3 computers just let us know. Each activation is intended for one user at a time.
