SketchUp is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction. Programming, diagramming, design development, detailing, documentation, RFIs—wherever you need drawings, you need SketchUp Pro.
SketchUp is fast
Why you need to have a complicated CAD software if you have SketchUp for simple design? SketchUp is hands-down the most intuitive and easy-to-learn 3D drawing tool around.
Think by drawing in 3D
We designed SketchUp to behave like an extension of your hand, so you can draw whatever you want, however you want.
Create accurate, highly-detailed models
SketchUp is accurate to a thousandth of an inch, so you can design, specify, and plan with as much or little detail as you need.
Produce scaled, accurate drawings
SketchUp isn’t just for 3D models. Draw plans, elevations, details, title blocks and a lot more with
LayOut. When your model changes, so does your document. Simple.
Generate presentation documents
With LayOut, you’re equipped for page design, drafting, vector illustration and slide presentations: everything you need to explain everything.
Create compelling walkthroughs
Use SketchUp Pro to turn your models into animated walkthroughs and flyovers that explain every detail.
Find a 3D model of anything
Need an oven for the kitchen you’re designing? An automobile for your driveway? A rhino for your zoo? Find it all in 3D Warehouse, the world’s biggest library of free 3D models.
Turn models into documents
Eventually, some 3D models grow up to become professional 2D drawing sets. LayOut in SketchUp Pro helps you showcase your models and create drawings you’ll be proud of.
Customize your SketchUp
SketchUp extensions are add-on tools that solve 3D modeling problems which might otherwise leave you scratching your head. And there are hundreds of them to explore.
Model and Document
With LayOut, insert SketchUp model views wherever you want on the pages of your document.These “viewports” are living, breathing views of your project. When your model changes, all of your viewports update, too. Say goodbye to exporting a million images out of SketchUp.
Make beautiful drawings
LayOut brings the “feel” of SketchUp into 2D space in an incomparably beautiful way. Line work, shadows, textures, text, dimensions, title blocks: all exactly the way you want.
Intuitive vector drawing
LayOut’s drawing tools are just like SketchUp’s: simple, smart, and fun.And because everything you draw is vector smart, scaling and rotating can be done with utmost precision.
Dimension, detail, explain
Use dimensioning tools that snap to the edges of SketchUp models and quickly set the format, scale, and precision of displayed measurements.
Customize callouts via controls for line weight, arrow and stroke style, curved leader lines, font formatting, line spacing... You get the picture, and so will everyone else.
3D Warehouse is the world’s largest repository of free 3D models, and it works seamlessly with
SketchUp. That means entourage, furniture, equipment, case work, the entire kitchen sink (literally)
is all handy in a few clicks.
Present on any device
When you upload your models to 3D Warehouse, it’s easy to pull them down onto your phone or tablet using the SketchUp Mobile Viewer app. Then, get hands on with clients and collaborators wherever, however you’d like.
