The SYMMETRY Plugin for SketchUp allows users to sync markups created in SYMMETRY VR to SketchUp via SYMMETRY Cloud.
In this article, we will cover:
- Download a project model
- Open a project and sync activity
- View markups
- Change a markup status
- Upload a revised model to SYMMETRY Cloud
Download a project model
In order to view markups and other activity related to a model in SketchUp, we must first download the most recent model from SYMMETRY Cloud.
For instructions on how to download a project model from SYMMETRY Cloud, and all other information related to project administration in SYMMETRY Cloud, please review: SYMMETRY Cloud - Projects.
Open a project and sync activity
After opening the model you've downloaded from SYMMETRY Cloud, open the SYMMETRY Plugin for SketchUp and log in.
Click on the project name from the list of projects, and click on the corresponding model. This will sync any activity related to your model via SYMMETRY Cloud.
On the left side of the SYMMETRY Plugin panel will be a list of markups, divided by status.
The three status types for markups are:
New markups can only be created in SYMMETRY VR.
Within SketchUp, the markups we want to focus on are those with a status of New. These are the markups that were created in SYMMETRY VR and contain the feedback we need to revise our model.
To the right of the list of markups within the SYMMETRY Plugin panel, we'll see detailed information regarding feedback.
Clicking on the thumbnail image will teleport us to the location of the markup within the model in the same way as clicking on a Scene would.
Below the thumbnail, there will be:
- Status (a toggle relating to the current status of said markup)
- Reply (a text field for entering comments after revising a markup area)
- Comment (dictated text along with the original audio recorded when creating the markup in SYMMETRY VR)
Change a markup status
After revising our model per the markup instructions, we should change the status from New to Review. Doing this will signify that the model has been revised and is ready for review in SYMMETRY VR.
Upload a revised model to SYMMETRY Cloud
After revising our model in SketchUp, we need to upload it to SYMMETRY Cloud for the changes to be synced to SYMMETRY VR.
To upload a revised model to SYMMETRY Cloud, click on the upload button from within the SYMMETRY Plugin panel.
