Wishlist from a SketchUp user

Hi all!

I’m coming from SketchUp and hope to make a transition to Shapr3D. However, there are some key features that I really miss.

Snap to origin point
This would make 3D print designs in particular a lot easier to setup.

You really shouldn’t have to make a temporary line drawing just to measure a distance.

Disable animations
It can provide some perspective of how the camera is moving, but generally I find it unnecessary and just slows down the workflow. Other software allows the user to switch views instantly.

Parallel perspective shortcuts
A quick way to view a model in parallel perspectives?

Document organisation
Unless I’m mistaken, there is no way to add folders in the Designs tab? Seems like a basic feature to me.

On a positive note I have found the tutorials very helpful. Thanks!

Great feedback, thanks.

Have you tried the Translate and the Align tools?

Have you noticed that the measurements of the selected geometries are displayed on the bottom of the screen? https://support.shapr3d.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001445613-Where-can-I-see-detailed-measurements-of-my-shapes-and-objects-
