From massing model to proposal, SketchUp Pro is ideal 3D urban design software that helps planners get the (whole) job done.

The big picture, at your fingertips.


A city planner's toolbox

Import 2D CAD files, 3D models, DEM data, or your own aerial imagery and scan data, and use it as a starting point for your planning project. Better yet, use SketchUp’s Geo-location tool and bring in exact terrain imagery with the click of a button. Once you’ve got your terrain, you can modify it quickly. With SketchUp, you’ll be turning contour lines into surfaces and draping hardscape elements onto flowing landscapes in no time.

Create compelling visualisations

SketchUp makes it easy to deliver your 3D urban planning models as accessible illustrations and animations. Send your model into LayOut to create detailed, colorful 2D plans with notes and scaled model views. Explain every detail of your proposal by turning your projects into animated walkthroughs and flyovers. Easily show alternate design scenarios and export videos. SketchUp helps you tell the full story and get client buy-in faster.

Access the world’s largest 3D model library

You don’t have to model everything from scratch. In fact, hundreds of thousands of objects — from buildings to vehicles to landscape elements — are available for download (for free!) from 3D Warehouse.

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.
