What's new in SketchUp Studio 2023?
Shave hours off your Revit-to-SketchUp workflow
The new Revit file import feature within a Studio subscription allows you to accurately and efficiently convert your Revit models into SketchUp geometry for deeper collaboration across project phases, teams, and stakeholders. Various workarounds do already exist to export Revit models to SketchUp, but this new importer saves the most time, is more accurate in geometry conversion, and leads to much lighter models.
“The Revit Importer sped up my importing and cleans up workflows from a couple of days to a few hours, even with complex models.”
-Carl Goodiel, VDC Manager
New Revit Importer, Flip-Tool changes, and Referenced .DWGs
Why use the Revit Importer?
- Improve collaboration with project stakeholders who create Revit deliverables.
- Preserve model structures between software for less cleanup.
- Move Revit models into SketchUp to iterate new ideas quickly.
- Build efficiencies; the imported Revit file is automatically optimized for easier geometry manipulation in SketchUp and significantly reduces file size.
- Create compelling visuals; Revit material colors and transparencies are respected during import to speed up visualization workflows.
- Translate Revit levels to SketchUp section planes.

Discoverable and connected workflows
Breakthroughs for Desktop
Build your anything – faster – with new modeling and documentation features and improvements in SketchUp. Explore a brand new Flip tool that replicates design elements predictably, manage DWG files in LayOut, and more.
Take the guesswork out of Flip transformations — the brand-new Flip tool lets you pre-visualise the outcome to model more predictably. Previsualise the plane you want to flip your selection along, then hover over the red, green, or blue planes to confirm the proper orientation. Click to flip! Fewer clicks and undoes means you can focus more of your valuable energy on developing a symmetrical relationship, evaluating it, and modifying it.
