Join Edges and Curves into "Polylines" with SketchUp Weld

There are hundreds of extensions - tools and features - integrated directly into SketchUp Pro. These extensions improve workflow by reducing time-consuming, complex or repetitive processes.
 
The SketchUp plugins add special functionalities to this simple-to-use design software such as photorealistic rendering, takes-offs and reporting, custom parametric modelling, animation, and advanced drawing tools.
