I've been playing with the idea of creating a Parametric Building Program for Sketchup Pro. Not only will it allow you to model your designs more efficiently, but it will allow you to track all the data needed to estimate or build your project.
I have a basic layout put together and I have worked with a small developer that researched and approved that the Sketchup's API will work with the program.
My question is how do you find people to collaborate with? I'm not interested in doing this alone. Hiring people to move this forward does not support flushing out ideas to make it better.
I have been given positive feedback about the program but have not found the right person that wants to be involved. I'm also nervous about someone stealing the idea when I talk to random people about it. Any feedback on how to network would be great. Im located in Providence, RI
