SketchUp Pro - New in 2016

SketchUp 2016 is here

Connected, refreshed and best of all… still SketchUp.

What’s new?

SketchUp, connected

Reference, sync, comment, report, and share: SketchUp 2016 is more connected than ever to the projects, information, and people you work with.

Trimble Connect is a new way to store, sync, reference, share, and collaborate on design/build projects. Sign up for a free account, then start uploading .skp, .pdf, .dxf, .ifc… however you work, Trimble Connect helps you work smarter together.
In SketchUp 2016, 3D Warehouse models can work as reference objects in any project. Download a model from 3D Warehouse, then reload it to update changes to every instance of that component.
We thought you should have more control of what information SketchUp Pro exports from models, and how it’s organized. So we reworked ‘Generate Report’ tool to do just that.
With this release, LayOut’s reference objects are web friendly. That means your LayOut projects can reference and update files that are stored and synced with services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Trimble Connect Sync.
We’re proud to announce our first step towards an extension ecosystem for LayOut. Using this new API developers can now create and customize .layout files from SketchUp models.

Simple, intuitive, just right

Every day, we obsess over making SketchUp seamless and efficient. Here’s what our obsession yielded in SketchUp 2016.

On Windows machines, we’ve re-worked SketchUp’s floating utility dialogs (Styles, Scenes, Components, etc.) so that they neatly stack inside customizable, completely collapsible trays. Simple, clean, just right.

What else is new?

If you haven’t been paying attention, we’ve been working on some other fun projects.

SketchUp Mobile Viewer 2.1

Our mobile app now works on phones and tablets, and connects to Trimble Connect and Dropbox.
