About Skalp for SketchUp 1.1

Skalp has been designed and built as an easy to use yet powerful Live Section Tool. 
It represents the key missing features needed to realize a long standing dream: Create your stunning plans and elevations inside SketchUp.

The Skalp development Team has its roots in architecture and 3D software, but that doesn’t mean Skalp is for architects or Pro users only. 
SketchUp is being used in so many disciplines nowadays. Which is why we intended Skalp to be as ‘generic’ as possible. This means we do not want to change or disrupt your specific workflow. We feel Skalp should just try to respect whatever and however you’re doing in SketchUp and simply boost your ability to create superb drawings.

As for the future of Skalp, we thank everybody who has purchased, spoken to us or helped us in any way. We plan to continue improving Skalp in many ways whilst keeping an affordable upgrade path. We always welcome new suggestions. If you’d like us to add or change something, by all means feel free to contact us.

Thank You!

The Skalp Team
