The most intuitive way to design, document and communicate your ideas in 3D
Make everything easier
SketchUp is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction. Programming, diagramming, design development, detailing, documentation, RFIs—wherever you need drawings, you need SketchUp Pro
Find a 3D model of anything
Need an oven for the kitchen you’re designing? An automobile for your driveway? A rhino for your zoo? Find it all in 3D Warehouse, the world’s biggest library of free 3D models.
Turn models into documents
Eventually, some 3D models grow up to become professional 2D drawing sets. LayOut in SketchUp Pro helps you showcase your models and create drawings you’ll be proud of.
Customize your SketchUp
SketchUp extensions are add-on tools that solve 3D modeling problems which might otherwise leave you scratching your head. And there are hundreds of them to explore.
Great documents often feature important information, so we built Tables; a great way to manage spreadsheets in LayOut. Create a Table from scratch, or import a .CSV or Excel file. Tables behave just like other spreadsheets: edit text, style cells, modify columns and rows… you get the gist. LayOut references your original spreadsheet, so updating every Table in your document is as simple as… click!
Now, when you make a change to your SketchUp model, any LayOut dimensions associated with the model update to reflect your edit. This is possible thanks to a new feature across the SketchUp platform called Persistent IDs. These are identifiers for geometry that help SketchUp (and its extensions) manipulate individual entities, like a specific edge or face. Basically, every sliver of your model just got smarter.
