Undet for SketchUp is a plug-in for SketchUp® software that can be installed only on Windows PC’s with SketchUp® installed.
Operating System: Windows 10 OS 64 bit. MAC is not supported. Virtual Machines is not supported.
Supported SketchUp versions: SketchUp 2019, 2020, 2021.
Technical requirements: Minimal technical requirements are the same as for SketchUp, but since Undet is dealing with point clouds, which is often heavy and data rich (millions of points having XYZ coordinates, Intensity and RGB values) some specs are worth upgrading.
RAM: The bigger the point cloud project the more RAM will be needed. Most users working with small scale point clouds will be fine with 8 GB of RAM. When dealing with tens of gigabytes of scan data 16 GB of RAM will be welcomed. Heavy duty point cloud professionals utilizing hundreds of gigabytes in a single project will appreciate 32 GB of RAM or more.
Hard Drive: An SSD is far faster than a HDD. If your project is located on a drive in a server machine, LAN will reduce performance considerably. Thus, copy your project to the local drive for better performance. Strongly recommend to use SSD.
CPU: Multiple threads are not supported, therefore, you need to pay attention to single thread performance.
GPU: While your CPU can render graphics, it’ll do so at a much slower rate than a GPU. Thus, we recommend using graphical processors like NVidia or AMD with 3D Graphics accelerator card with OpenGL version 3.2 or better. There is no need to go for the fanciest series. For example:
Minimum: Intel HD integrated graphics card with at least 512MB video memory. (slow performance)
Recommended: Discrete Graphics card specifications such as GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB or above (good performance)
