Highlights

You love what you do, now love how you do it

Trimble SketchUp Pro is the easiest way to create 3D models of pretty much anything. Popularised by Google, SketchUp has become the default modeller for professionals and novices who need rapid 3D modelling abilities.

Who uses SketchUp Pro? Everyone.

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.

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.

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 technical support.

No software is an island

SketchUp Pro slides right into your existing workflow 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. 

Get started right away

Get rolling with SketchUp in just a few minutes. Dozens of video tutorials, an extensive Help Center and a worldwide user community mean that anyone who wants to make 3D models with SketchUp, can.

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.

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 extensions that provide extra features and tools, The all-new Extension Warehouse is your ticket to add-on nirvana. 

BIM ready, from the first click

Where does building information modeling begin? In SketchUp Pro, start by tagging groups and components with industry standard classification types. Then, geo-locate your model for shadow studies and site context. Continue on, further enriching components with data attributes or programming functions. Build smart spreadsheet reports, or wrap up your entire project in a tidy IFC file, ready for further modeling and analysis with the next instrument in your BIM tool box.

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. 

Model anything you can imagine

Design a new piece of furniture. Create a skatepark, model your home,  design a garden feature, invent something new, plan an exhibition display. There's no limit to what you can create with SketchUp.

Get models online for free

You can build models from scratch, or you can download what you need. People all over the world share what they've made on the 3D Warehouse. It's a huge, searchable repository of models, and it's free with leterally thousands of pre made models.
