SketchUp Pro is modelling software for 3D printing that's simple, fun, and predictable. Make what you can imagine.

Design it. Make it. Enjoy the process.

Start modeling right away

Don’t waste time learning complicated software. SketchUp is the fun, easy way to learn 3D modeling. Once you’ve got the basics down, draw whatever you imagine—one element at a time.

Create any shape imaginable

Transform simple shapes into imaginative structures using SketchUp’s Move and Scale tools. And, with Solid tools, you can manipulate geometry easily. Combining a wing onto a model plane or interlocking parts together? No problem.

Take risks. We've got your back.

SketchUp’s speed and simplicity support exploration, experimentation, and the occasional misfire by letting you make and fix mistakes before you ever get to g-code. And, in the case of true catastrophes, there’s always Autosave.

Your 3D toolkit

STL import and export

SketchUp speaks STL – and a whole bunch of other 3D file formats – so your models are always one click away from the standard 3D printing file format.

Free 3D model library

Why SketchUp?


Become a Master Modeller

SketchUp was built to be an intuitive, easy-to-learn system, with our online tutorials and support service you will master the program in no time.


Local Service and Support

Purchasing your licence through Professional CAD Systems gives you access to our local support service via phone or email 5 days a week.


No Experience Necessary

SketchUp is nimble and lightweight software that does not require specialist teams to implement and maintain the package.


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.


Working Construction Drawings

Annotate your drawings as intensively as you’d like. Combine text, graphics and dimensions to create fully documented working drawings ready for construction.


Export and Share Your Models

Publish photo-realistic renders of your model, develop 2D and 3D flythroughs and export to video files. Share these with your clients, your students or your teachers.


Customize your SketchUp

SketchUp Extensions are add-ons that solve 3D modeling problems which might otherwise leave you scratching your head. And there are hundreds of them to explore.
