    Hello ConDoc Members!
    You may notice that things behind our site have switched! We now want to welcome to the new ConDoc 4 Pro Forum, the professional’s resource for learning SketchUp Pro and The ConDoc Tools. A few things to keep in mind as you start to poke around… This forum is moderated by Brightman Designs, but not all threads are answered by us. If you know the answer please don’t hesitate to help out a fellow designer. We always do our best to respond as soon as we can, but if you need your answer immediately try the 3D Helpline. There are a ton of classes and tutorials included in your ConDoc Pro subscription. Please watch them! If there are questions asked in the forum that are covered in the SketchUp for Professionals or the advanced tutorials, we may re-direct you there rather than making a new video or thread response. The entire Brightman Designs team is here to help you become the expert in ConDoc! We look forward to working with you!

    One last thing to note; within a few weeks we will no longer be supporting ConDoc v3 questions via the archived forum. You may ask anything you want to until we officially launch, but be aware that we’ll be switching over and we hope you get on board with ConDoc 4 as well. Let us know if you have any questions, we’re happy to help!

    Sincerely, the ConDoc Team

    So are the tutorials up to date with ConDoc 4? When I deleted the ConDoc 3 tutorials and downloaded ConDoc 4 each file still had 2017 dates…so only certain tutorials updated?

    Hello Donna!  Just click on the tutorials link at the top of the page, there you will see the latest and greatest!  Start with the install, and make sure you watch them all.  Lot’s of new tricks!

    Hi there,

    I installed ConDoc last week and have been looking through the manual and also taking the SUFP online class. The plugin looks great and I’m excited to use it on my current project, but I’m running into a problem. I constructed a simple model -203KB, I set up a perspective I like, select the ConDoc perspective tool, click on my model view and the “pick drawing for this scene” dialog box appears, I press exterior perspective, and Sketchup crashes. Every time. It’s also the only model I have open.

    I’m working on a Macbook pro 16GB.

    Please help.

    Thanks,

    Luke

    Try modifying the perpective drawing style using the configurator…  Switch it to design style.  The default presentation style is heavy with watermarks.  That will fix it!

    That worked Mike, thanks so much!

    So Mike, If Sketchup crashes  when I use the default setting (LINE DRAWING-Presentation) what can I do to alter that should I need that setting in the future? Also should I be setting the configurator to DESIGN throughout?

     

    Thanks,

    Luke

    Hi There,

    I am taking the SUFP and am trying to create a scene with the ConDoc perspective tool. I did as Mike suggested and set the configurator’s Interior and exterior Perspective  setting to “Design” and it worked on a simple model of my own without crashing, but with the perspective that you set up in SUFP 8.5 Master suite the model crashes. All the settings are as you have them in the class and the configurator is set to “Design” for both interior and exterior perspectives. What can I do to rectify this?

     

    Thanks,

    Luke

    Good Morning Luke!  Sorry for the delay, we were out in Palm Springs for SketchUp Basecamp.  Is this issue persisting?

    I’ve just started using ConDoc 4; I’m halfway through a model and just noticed I’ve relocated the 3 buttons associated with Interior Floors, 02 Level to somewhere in the model. The Layers “tray of buttons” just shows a blank grey patch where the buttons should be. I’ve also relocated the Windows Exterior button. I’ve checked all the “Hide/Unhide” buttons, toggled the “rest of Model” on and off. Cutting and pasting in place doesn’t seem to work – unless I’m not pasting them in the right place.

    So I’m not sure how to bring the buttons back to the tray. Any insights?

    (BTW the new ConDocs is a dream to use; so much improved over version 3)

    Hi guys,

     

    I am wondering if there is a set of metric scrapbooks and layout templates for CONDOC 4.5?

    Hi, Just started using condoc and I’m having trouble with proj generator. The floorplan scenes all look the same and/or other sections/elevations  are WAAAAAAY zoomed out so my model is a just a spec. Definitely not a time saver I was hoping for. What am I doing wrong?

    Keep in mind the ConDoc LT drawing set is loaded by default on a fresh install of ConDoc.  ConDoc LT plans will snapshot the visible layers at the time of running the plan generator… or any ConDoc Tool.

    All ConDoc Tools run a Zoom Extent, so if you have geometry spread out the view will capture everything.  You can always zoom in and update your scenes after you run any of the ConDoc Tools.

    Hi and thanks for a very promising addition to my workflow.

    I have just started my first Condoc project using the MOG components for two levels and cutting pasting exterior walls and floors as per tutorials .

    I am noticing that the All o/off button utility in the condoc windo is having no effect on my model.
