Quickly redline 3D models, make field edits on the fly, and sync all of your changes to the cloud to keep stakeholders aligned while on the go.
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.
A robust integration with our cloud-based collaboration platform, Trimble Connect, keeps files in sync across devices so you can move seamlessly between SketchUp for iPad, SketchUp for Web, and SketchUp Pro desktop design apps.
