What Is SketchUp?
SketchUp, also known as Google Sketchup, is a 3D modeling computer program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, civil and mechanical engineering, film, and video game designs. It is available in a free version (SketchUp Make) and a paid version with additional functionality (SketchUp Pro).
Why Choose SketchUp Over Other Softwares?
SketchUp is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction. Programming, diagramming, design development, detailing, and documentation. SketchUp is hands-down the most intuitive and easy-to-learn 3D drawing tool around. It is the perfect tool to visualize concepts and is very user friendly. When you have to construct a form out of a vague concept, you have to draw and redraw, correct and repair constantly. SketchUp gives you the freedom of making changes easily and as quick as possible.
SketchUp Make gives you limited freedom and tools of creating a complete project, which is why going with SketchUp Pro would be a better option.
Think By Drawing In 3D
SketchUp Pro is designed to behave like an extension of your hand, so you can draw whatever you want, however you want.
Create Accurate, Highly-Detailed Models
SketchUp is accurate to a thousandth of an inch, so you can design, specify, and plan with as much or little detail as you need.
Produce Scaled, Accurate Drawings
SketchUp isn’t just for 3D models. Draw plans, elevations, details, title blocks and a lot more with LayOut. When your model changes, so does your document. Simple.
Generate Presentation Documents
How about high-resolution digital presentations? With LayOut, you’re equipped for page design, drafting, vector illustration and slide presentations: everything you need to explain your project. The LayOut feature can create a multi-page document with different styles, perspectives, measurements and views, all from one model. Not only that, your entire document gets automatically updated on modifying the original model. This is a unique feature because you get both print and digital documents from one LayOut. Still in beta stage, this feature will only get better.
Create Compelling Walkthroughs
Use SketchUp Pro to turn your models into animated walkthroughs and flyovers that explain every detail.
Find A Model From A Trusted Manufacturer
With manufacturer partners like Herman Miller, Formica, Thermador and many others, we’re working to make 3D Warehouse the best place on the web to find a model of a specific, real-world object. Now when you specify an oven for a kitchen, you can be sure you’re working with accurate geometry, not to mention beautiful models.
Present On Any Device
When you upload your models to 3D Warehouse, it’s easy to pull them down onto your phone or tablet using the SketchUp Mobile Viewer app. Then, get hands on with clients and collaborators wherever, however you’d like.
Import, Build, Test
Would you like to redesign something that has been built in another software? Simply import it into SketchUp. The format does not matter as SketchUp supports all formats. Once done, measure it, turn it around, get a different perspective or go for a walk around your construct. Test it till you are satisfied.
You have built your design. Now, how would you like to present it? SketchUp converts your design into perfect 2D prints. Add text, annotation, measurements, anything you like, to make your presentation look professional.
SketchUp is simple to use and support is easily accessible. Simply email Tech Support. The SketchUp blog has user experiences in every aspect, so help is always at hand. The software is open to developers who would like to add value.
