SketchUp Pro 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 one of the most intuitive and easy-to-learn 3D drawing tools around.
Think by drawing in 3D
SketchUp was designed to behave like an extension of your hand, so you can draw whatever you want, however you want.
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.
Create compelling walkthroughs
Use SketchUp Pro to turn your models into animated walkthroughs and flyovers that explain every detail.
BIM Capabilities & Compatibility
SketchUp Pro incorporates BIM functionality to enable users to participate in BIM projects and provide data from their models to partners, suppliers and contractors. The 'Classifier' Tool within SketchUp Pro uses the IFC classification library and allows users to apply IFC classifications to the components of their model. Component data with their IFC classifications can then be exported using the 'Generate Report' function.
In addition to IFC classification reports, SketchUp Pro also exports to the IFC 2x3 file format. This makes models widely readable in this industry-standard format and is ideal for sharing model information with users on other platforms.
