The easiest way to design
SketchUp Studio is the simplest way to steer your projects ahead with confidence. Model your project with the SketchUp tools you know and love, plus all the analysis tools you need to build efficient buildings.
Whatever your project goals, Sketchup can help. Whether you’re designing a passive low energy home, wanting to meet the 2030 challenge or aiming for another performance goal, SketchUp Studio helps you drive consensus on how to improve your project and worry less about whether you’re on track.
Complete 3D Modeling Software
SketchUp is a full-featured desktop modeler, built to make anything your imagination can create.
There’s a reasonSketchUp is synonymous with friendly and forgiving 3D modeling software: SketchUp doesn’t sacrifice usability for the sake of functionality. Start by drawing lines and shapes. Push and pull surfaces to turn them into 3D forms. Stretch, copy, rotate and paint to make anything you like.
If you want to be productive within a couple of hours, you’ve come to the right place.
UseSketchUp to get owners, inspectors, architects, engineers, and subcontractors all headed in the same direction.
Simple Is Powerful
3D Modeling The most intuitive way to design, document, and communicate your ideas in 3D. Iterate in 3D Work through your ideas in 3D space and quickly develop your projects. Accurate, detailed models Accuracy from the beginning is key. SketchUp enables you to design, define, and plan in all stages of the project.
Features You’ll Love
Interoperability – SketchUp plays well with all of the other tools in your design toolbox.
Extensibility – Use the Extension Warehouse to make SketchUp exactly what you need it to be.
Objects – Work smart and work fast with SketchUp’s objects.
Customization – Customize the look and feel of any project’s style to make it your very own.
Generate Reports – Get stakeholders all the details they need to get the job done.
Inferencing – This isn’t SketchUp’s first rodeo. SketchUp uses inferencing to make accuracy and speed a cinch.
Amplify your building performance: Sefaira’s analysis is nimble enough to keep up with the pace of conceptual and schematic design. Run full annual simulations powered by industry-accredited analysis engines, and get your building performance results in minutes instead of weeks.
Get the metrics you need:
Energy use and carbon emissions - Understand your design’s impact on energy cost and CO2 emissions while also measuring the potential impact of a renewable system.
Thermal comfort - See how shading improves operative temperatures and measure the impact of window openings on air temperature.
Daylight - Choose between Daylight Factor, Direct Sun Exposure, and Annual Daylight outputs (including Spatial Daylight Autonomy sDA).
HVAC - Quickly assess the impact of your architectural features on HVAC sizes and generate preliminary sizes to improve cost estimation.
Tools for your 3D modeling toolbox
SketchUp Pro for Desktop
An easy-to-use UI and intuitive tools make SketchUp the easiest way to design your building in 3D.
Share cohesive and compelling graphics using SketchUp, LayOut, and Sefaira.
Analyze energy use, daylighting, occupant thermal comfort, and HVAC before you build.
Virtual and augmented reality apps
Tour project models with your clients in the office or on site at 1:1 scale using our range of AR/VR and mobile apps.
Collaboration and cloud storage
Coordinate building models with stakeholders using Trimble Connect.
Enhanced design research
Quick insights for design research before you start in 3D. Get design recommendations based on weather and building type.
Create 3D Models - Using SketchUp, you can create 3D models, either by starting from scratch or by using existing data. Import drawings, CAD plans, photos, aerial imagery and other information, then use the modeling tools in SketchUp Pro to develop your ideas into 3D.
Add Data to your Model - Within SketchUp, you have the ability to add attributes to your model with Dynamic Components. At any point, create a report summarizing the attribute data in your model.
Import and Export- SketchUpcan bring in DXFs and DWGs from any standard CAD package. It can produce images, PDFs, CAD files, and HD animations. You can be sure that SketchUp Pro will plug right into your workflow.
Present and Document - For many of your projects, SketchUp, which includes LayOut, is all you will need. LayOut is the 2D presentation tool to SketchUp Pro for creating deliverables like permit and construction drawings, presentation documents, and full-screen digital presentations.
Collaborate - Construction organizations use SketchUpto quickly and effectively communicate 3D information to all project teams, enhancing collaboration and ensuring a shared vision. Using 3D models, one can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to reach a common goal.
