Game designers use SketchUp because it's the fastest way to get from an idea to something they can see. From game modding to rapid prototyping, SketchUp Pro is a simple but powerful tool for exploring and presenting your ideas in 3D.
Explore ideas quickly
SketchUp's simplicity lets you explore and iterate without losing focus on your ideas - it stays out of your way. You'll spend less time hunting for tools and reading manuals, and more time getting things done. Promise.
Preview game play right in SketchUp
In addition to flying around like a superhero, SketchUp lets you interact with your models in a first-person, "walking-and-looking-around" mode. Running through corridors and up and down stairs lets you understand the relationship between your design and actual game play in real time.
Find models of anything you need - for free
Deep in cyberspace, there's a huge, online repository of free content that you can access anytime. It's called the 3D Warehouse, and there, you can download cars, ships, people, trees and anything else you can think of. Why model everything you need when you can search for it for free?
Need to send your model to another program? No problem.
With SketchUp Pro, you can export your models to use in other software. SketchUp Pro can generate 3DS, OBJ, FBX and COLLADA (DAE) files, among others. Get your ideas down quickly with SketchUp, then move them into your favorite 3D program when you're ready.
