Introducing SketchUp 2017
The easiest way to draw in 3D
You love what you do. Now love how you do it.
Get good fast
There’s a reason SketchUp is synonymous with friendly and forgiving 3D modeling software: we don’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.
Find a 3D model of anything
Why model everything from scratch? Whether it’s a chair for the room you’re designing or a rhino for your zoo, you’ll find almost anything you need in SketchUp’s 3D Warehouse, the world’s biggest repository of free 3D models. And anyone can use 3D Warehouse to store and share models. Upload your best work and become a SketchUp legend.
Turn models into drawings with LayOut
At some point in most 3D projects, you’ll need to turn your model into a set of drawings that gets the point across. LayOut in SketchUp Pro lets you add model views to pages, choose drawing scales, adjust line weights, and add dimensions, callouts, and graphics. Make a change to your SketchUp model, and find it reflected automatically in LayOut. And when it’s time, export PDFs, images and CAD files.
After 12 months SketchUp Pro reverts to the free SketchUp Make. For a flavour of the differences (it used to be owned by Google):
You will receive a reminder 2 weeks and 1 week before the end of the 12 months from SketchUp asking whether you want to purchase another 12 month license and Entec will also contact you beforehand.
