Turn Models into Documents
At some point in most 3D projects, you’ll need to turn your model into a drawing set that gets the point across. Use SketchUp to add model views to pages, choose drawing scales, adjust line weights, and add dimensions, callouts, and graphics. Make a change to your SketchUp, and find it reflected automatically in LayOut. And when it’s time, export pages as PDFs, images and CAD files.
Find a 3D Model of Anything
Why model everything from scratch? Whether it’s a chair for the room you’re designing or a rhino for your zoo, you’ll find anything you need in 3D Warehouse, the world’s biggest library of free 3D models. And anyone can use 3D Warehouse to store and share models. Upload your best work and become a legend.
Extensions are add-on tools built to solve the kind of modelling problems that might otherwise leave you scratching your head. And there are hundreds for you to explore.
Make everything easier
No one wants to waste time learning complicated computer programs. SketchUp is hands-down the most intuitive, not to mention powerful, easy-to-learn 3D drawing tool on the planet. If you want to be productive within a couple of hours, you’ve come to the right place.
Produce scaled, accurate 2D drawings
Not just for 3D models – Draw plans, elevations, details, title blocks and other graphics with LayOut. When your model changes, so does your document. Simple.
Generate presentation documents
The Pro version includes LayOut, an incredibly powerful tool with features for page layout, drafting, vector illustration and slide presentations.
Create compelling visualizations and walkthroughs
Turn your models into animated walkthroughs and flyovers that explain every detail of your design.
Get good, fast
No one wants to waste time learning complicated software. SketchUp Pro is hands-down the most intuitive and easy-to-learn 3D drawing tool on the planet.
Think by drawing in 3D
We designed SketchUp to behave like an extension of your hand. The idea is to get out of your way so that you can draw whatever you want, however you want.
Iterate quickly through design ideas
We love how architects use layers and layers of tracing paper to develop and improve their ideas. Similarly, SketchUp was born to be simple to let you iterate.
