Simple yet powerful
and communicate your ideas in 3D.
Iterate in 3D
and quickly develop your projects.
Accurate, detailed models
SketchUp enables you to design, define, and plan in all stages of the project.
Visualise in no time
SketchUp is designed to behave like your hand — more like a pencil than complicated 3D modeling software. SketchUp gets out of your way so you can draw whatever you can imagine, efficiently. Throughout the design-build process, SketchUp helps you analyze problems and get the project under construction.
SketchUp isn’t just for 3D modeling — it’s also great for communicating your construction designs in 2D. Draw plans, elevations, sections, build details, and finish it off with your title blocks. SketchUp is remarkably accurate, so you can be sure that anyone working on the project will have the information they need to get the job done. The best part: when your model changes, so does your document. Simple.
Present to impress
Tell a richer story with your model using animations, images, and videos. Create flyovers and walkthroughs that glide clients through your project. Clearly communicate your design vision by exporting high-quality images and videos that show variations and details. Want to impress your clients even more? Immerse them in projects using our augmented and virtual reality apps and watch the “wow’s” roll in.
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.
Integrate with 100s of Extensions
SketchUp integrates with an enormous library of extensions which can take your modelling to the next level, including producing renders, designing interiors and testing components.
Who uses SketchUp?
Hundreds of thousands of professionals in (take a deep breath) architecture, construction, engineering, commercial interiors, light construction, landscape architecture, kitchen & bath design, urban planning, game design, film & stage, woodworking, and plenty of other fields use SketchUp Pro all the time, every day. It’s the all-purpose antidote to complicated, expensive CAD software.
