Make everything easier

No one wants to waste time learning complicated computer programs. SketchUp is hands-down the most intuitive, not to mention powerful, easy-to-learn 3D drawing tool on the planet. If you want to be productive within a couple of hours, you’ve come to the right place.

    • Get good, fast

      No one wants to waste time learning complicated software. SketchUp Pro is hands-down the most intuitive and easy-to-learn 3D drawing tool on the planet.

    • Think by drawing in 3D

      We designed SketchUp to behave like an extension of your hand. The idea is to get out of your way so that you can draw whatever you want, however you want.

    • Iterate quickly through design ideas

      We love how architects use layers and layers of tracing paper to develop and improve their ideas. Similarly, SketchUp was born to be simple to let you iterate.

    • Produce scaled, accurate 2D drawings

      SketchUp isn’t just for 3D models. Draw plans, elevations, details, title blocks and other graphics with LayOut. When your model changes, so does your document. Simple.

    • Generate presentation documents

      SketchUp Pro includes LayOut, an incredibly powerful tool with features for page layout, drafting, vector illustration and slide presentations.

    • Create compelling visualizations and walkthroughs

      Use SketchUp Pro to turn your models into animated walkthroughs and flyovers that explain every detail of your design.

Don't take our word for it...

  • SketchUp is the only tool we use for creating game environments. The toolset allows for clear delineation of simple surfaces using volume and vertex-based tools.

  • The tools in SketchUp are easy to use and intuitive. Instead of figuring out how to use each feature, SketchUp lets me focus on the design itself.

  • SketchUp is so completely useful, because it’s so fast. Right away, I start making real design choices that we can implement in the game.

  • One of the things we like about SketchUp is that it enables an artist to come in, pick it up, learn it quickly, and start producing.
