Create 3D Models

SketchUp Pro can create 3D models by starting from scratch or by using available data. It Import drawings such as CAD plans, photos, aerial imagery and other information and use the modeling tools in SketchUp Pro to develop ideas into 3D.


Add Data to Model

SketchUp Pro has a ability to add characteristics to model with Dynamic Components. It summarizes report and attribute data in the model.


Import and Export

SketchUp Pro gets DXFs and DWGs from any standard CAD package. It can produce images, PDFs, CAD files, and HD animations.


Present and Document

LayOut is the 2D presentation tool to SketchUp Pro for creating deliverables such as permit and construction drawings, presentation documents and full-screen digital presentations.



Construction organizations use SketchUp Pro to 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.

TRIMBLE SketchUp presence in 3D Animation Software

Trimble has offered its animation program SketchUp with two versions, SketchUp Make and SketchUp Pro. SketchUp Make is a free-of-charge version for home and personal users. The company offers a 30-day trial of SketchUp Pro for free and later users can either switch to Pro version or continue with SketchUp Make with no extra cost. To tap the growing trend of software available as mobile applications, Trimble developed multiple applications for Android and iOS operating systems, namely, SketchUp Mobile Viewer, Cubits, IrisVR Prospect, and Kubity. The company has implemented both organic and in-organic strategies for its growth. For instance, Trimble SketchUp partnered with Umbra, a leading graphics software technology company, to bring refined building information models (BIM), 3D data visualization, mixed reality, and the HoloLens. Umbra can process 3D BIM models allowing Trimble clients to work with voluminous 3D content on virtual devices by producing enhanced content.

“Amazing extension”

SketchUP is an awesome tool for planning out a 3D space quickly, without needing much 3D design knowledge. The SketchUp Warehouse is also an amazing extension that allows users to use pre-built assets from other users, speeding up the design process even more.

“Good for designing objects quickly”

I needed a program that would help nurture my creativity in designing an object that was technically sound as well as innovative. SketchUp helped me do this. Apart from creating designs, it also lets me edit designs, which really helps.

“Ease of use and recognition – important benefits”

The various types of tools and colors that this program offers are the best for me. Plus, since it easy to handle, it saves a lot of time that otherwise would be spent on trying to learn and understand it. Also, it is compatible with autocad, which improves its credibility and functionality to a great extent. It does, however, require a strong system to work on, so keep that in mind.
