SketchUp Pro is an easy-to-use 3D modeler that lets you think through and pre-build projects on the computer before you tackle them in real life.

The best tool for any job.

Try out design variations in 3D​

Experimenting in woodworking software or cabinet design software is a lot less expensive than experimenting in the shop. Use SketchUp to visualise as many designs as you like without wasting a single piece of wood. Make sure your idea is possible and get any mistakes out of the way in SketchUp before you head to the hardware store.

Get good fast​

If you want to be productive fast, you’ve come to the right place. SketchUp is the easiest way to learn how to draw in 3D. And once you learn the basics, SketchUp gets out of your way so you can draw whatever you want, however you want.

Measure twice, cut once

Think of 3D modeling your project as the ultimate form of measurement. With SketchUp, you can model accurately, take dimensions, and generate a cutlist in 3D before you build it. SketchUp is remarkably accurate, so you can model anything – from a wall of cabinets to a lap joint – with as much precision and detail as you like.

Real materials

Upload photos of wood grain, color, and finishes, or pull from material catalogs on 3D Warehouse.

Cutlists and cost estimates

SketchUp reports pull model information so you can do things like add up parts for cutlists and cost estimates.

Free 3D model library

Turn your 3D model into a 2D plan that includes dimensions, details, notes… anything you need to start the build.

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.
