I have used sketchup but not for a year or so. I didn’t know they were breaking it. It’s a pity. I found it fine for what I was doing.

I spent 20 years at Intergraph and in later years used mostly Bentley Microstation. It’s always been 3d as long as I can remember. Bentley will not sell me a cheap 10-year-old version for home use. So, I have used free sketchup. I have some former Intergraph friends who work for Bentley, but no “friends and family deal either”.

Microstation is now $5360, so not going to happen for me.

One of the mechanical engineers where I work uses Microstation, but probably a very old version.
