When you start to do a concept, and you need to unleash your creativity, you need tools that are easy to use – tools similar to sketching on a physical piece of paper, and SketchUp for iPad does precisely this.

It [SketchUp for iPad] helps me communicate more efficiently with our general contractors. They love seeing the model on an iPad versus paper because it’s more detailed. I enjoy 3D modeling on iPad because it’s like a digital piece of paper; it’s so much more flexible than bringing your laptop out in the field.

I use SketchUp every day in the film industry. Now, I use SketchUp on my iPad and take my work wherever I go – the train, on set, etc. Before SketchUp for iPad, I would hand sketch on sets and jot down dimensions on a piece of paper; now, I can do it right there with the Director on my iPad. It’s saved me a lot of design time – about half a day’s work. Plus, I don’t lose any modeling space with the way the UI has been developed. All of the menus are dropdowns, so it saves a ton of space. 3D visualization on iPad has ever been easier.

I build everything from furniture pieces to intricate bookcases. With iPad, I can take my work wherever I go. I can quickly capture my woodworking projects while sitting on the couch with my wife. I’m no longer tied to my desktop. It’s great to have that flexibility.
