product description

Who uses SketchUp Pro?

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.

A smarter way to think about 3D modeling

SketchUp Pro is like a pencil with superpowers. Start by drawing lines and shapes. Push and pull surfaces to turn them into 3D forms. Stretch, copy, rotate and paint to make anything you like. More advanced? Start modeling from CAD and terrain data, photographs or even hand sketches. Build models with custom behaviors and attributes. SketchUp Pro is as simple and as powerful as you want it to be. Learn more »

Turn your models into drawings with LayOut

At some point in every project, you need to produce a set of drawings that shows your model: plans, sections, elevations, perspectives. LayOut in SketchUp Pro lets you add model views to pages, choose drawing scales, adjust line weights and add dimensions, callouts and graphics. Changes to your model are reflected automatically in LayOut. When it’s time, export PDFs, images and CAD files. Learn more »

Get good, fast.

There’s a reason SketchUp is synonymous with friendly and forgiving 3D modeling software: we don’t sacrifice usability for the sake of functionality. With handy contextual tips, a dedicated Instructor panel for beginners, and mountains of online resources, help is always on the way. And just in case, every SketchUp Pro license includes a year of free technical support. Learn more »

No software is an island

We built SketchUp Pro to slide right into your existing workflow. Ready for some alphabet soup? With importers for DXF, DWG, 3DS, DAE, KMZ, TIF, JPG, PNG and a few more, you can bring in drawings, models and images to your heart’s content. SketchUp Pro also exports all of those formats, plus PDF, OBJ, FBX, XSI, VRML, MP4, WEBM and AVI. OMG. Learn more »

Slides are boring. Present from SketchUp Pro.

Scenes let you save views of your model to pull up anytime. Styles provide endless visual effects to make your work look precise, sketchy or anything in between. Section Planes slice through models for creating sectional views. Go fullscreen, walk around, add labels and export flyover animations. Present from SketchUp Pro and get your point across every single time. Learn more »

Models and plugins aplenty

Need a particular chair for the room you’re designing? A lamp for your carriage house? A rhino for your zoo? You’ll find almost anything you need in SketchUp’s 3D Warehouse, the world’s biggest repository of free 3D models. And as for plugins that provide extra features and tools, our all-new Extension Warehouse is your ticket to add-on nirvana. Learn more »

Don’t just design. Analyze.

SketchUp Pro can accurately predict where shadows will fall, given any time, date and location on earth. It can show you exactly what you’ll see from anywhere in your model. It will precisely calculate the area of any surface or material, or the volume of any enclosed 3D shape. It lets you add attributes to objects, and can spit out lists and reports with deliciously useful data. Learn more »

A world of context—literally

In about two minutes, you can choose a section of the world to bring into your SketchUp Pro model—up to a square kilometer at a time. For free, you’ll get aerial imagery, a 3D terrain model and lat-long data to produce accurate shadow studies. From there, you can import pre-modeled buildings for site context and use Google Maps Street View imagery to model anything else you need. Learn more »

A place for everything and everything in its place

Your mother always told you that the key to 3D modeling success was tidiness and organization. Make your models easy to work on and easy to present. Use groups and components to divvy up your geometry into logical chunks. Layers come in handy for separating big pieces of your model, and the Outliner is a way to see everything at once.

What's New in 2015?

64-bit application

For the first time ever, SketchUp is offering a 64-bit version for Windows machines. What's the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit applications?

Face Finder improvements

SketchUp sharpened "Face-Finder", the code SketchUp uses to create faces while you're modeling. Look for big improvements in operations like explode, especially in your behemoth-sized models.

Fast Styles

SketchUp is now self-aware of styles that help your model render faster. Youíll notice "Fast Styles" badged in the styles window, including those you create yourself. What makes a style fast, you ask?
