The most intuitive way to design, document and communicate your ideas in 3D
Make everything easier
SketchUp is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction. Programming, diagramming, design development, detailing, documentation, RFIs—wherever you need drawings, you need SketchUp Pro.
Get good, fast
Whoever asked for complicated CAD software? SketchUp is hands-down the most intuitive and easy-to-learn 3D drawing tool around.
Think by drawing in 3D
We designed SketchUp to behave like an extension of your hand, so you can draw whatever you want, however you want.
Create accurate, highly-detailed models
SketchUp is accurate to a thousandth of an inch, so you can design, specify, and plan with as much or little detail as you need.
Produce scaled, accurate drawings
SketchUp isn’t just for 3D models. Draw plans, elevations, details, title blocks and a lot more with LayOut. When your model changes, so does your document. Simple.
Generate presentation documents
With LayOut, you’re equipped for page design, drafting, vector illustration and slide presentations: everything you need to explain everything.
Create compelling walkthroughs
Use SketchUp Pro to turn your models into animated walkthroughs and flyovers that explain every detail.
Simple is powerful
Find a 3D model of anything
Need an oven for the kitchen you’re designing? An automobile for your driveway? A rhino for your zoo? Find it all in 3D Warehouse, the world’s biggest library of free 3D models.
Turn models into documents
Eventually, some 3D models grow up to become professional 2D drawing sets. LayOut in SketchUp Pro helps you showcase your models and create drawings you’ll be proud of.
Intuitive vector drawing
LayOut’s drawing tools are just like SketchUp’s: simple, smart, and fun. And because everything you draw is vector smart, scaling and rotating can be done with utmost precision.
Dimension, detail, explain
Use dimensioning tools that snap to the edges of SketchUp models and quickly set the format, scale, and precision of displayed measurements. Customize callouts via controls for line weight, arrow and stroke style, curved leader lines, font formatting, line spacing… You get the picture, and so will everyone else.
New way of doing portables: separate .svm packages -useful for plugins & so: reduces main exe size that contains only the program, thne you can download the plugin package only if you want it! -ability for me to release a small program update through these separate files, without having to make the whole thing form scratch for each update. --> More updated portables and less unnecessary size! This release includes: - main package (465 Mb): 3 small exe files (SketchUp, LayOut, Style Builder) plus a .dat file with all the main data. - V-Ray 3.6 plugin package: optional .svm file, download if you want to use V-Ray with this SketchUp --> made it! should work, read activation txt carefully. Requires second version of SketchUp portable, not sure if it works with previous version. !! Use method 2 explained in txt, because method 1 is messed up !! - Plugins Pack (220 Mb): an additional optional collection of many plugins. See list You have to download the main package. If you want one or both of the additional plugins packages, download them and put the .svm file near the main exe files. At next startup, the portable will recognize the new plugins! All files from all packages:
