Simple is powerful
Iterate in 3D
Work through your ideas in 3D and quickly develop your projects.
Accurate, detailed models
Visualise your ideas
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.
Low Learning Curve
Get yourself (or an entire team) up to speed and onboard fast with intuitive modeling, efficient user management features, and best of all free local NZ support and learning resources when you buy from Professional CAD Systems.
A robust 3D toolset
Go from sketch to 3D model and beyond with ease. Our interconnected tools will help you define, refine, and actualise your concepts from the big picture to the smallest details.
Collaboration made easy
