TRIMBLE SketchUp Overview


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.


SketchUp is identical with friendly and forgiving 3D modeling software. It starts by drawing lines and shapes and push and pull surfaces to turn them into 3D forms. It can also stretch, copy, rotate and paint to make anything. It is a 3D modeling computer software that offers broad range of design applications.

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.
