Driving Dimensions is a plug-in for Google SketchUp that allows you to make parametric changes of any 3D model in very simple and intuitive way. With Driving Dimensions plug-in you can change any dimension (length, distance, radius, angle) in your SketchUp model in just one click. All driving dimensions set in your model are satisfied simultaneously (when you set up a new dimension, all previous dimensions are also satisfied). Parametric design has never been so easy even for beginners!
