Trimble SketchUp is a 3D modeling computer program used for drawing layout functionalities. It was
acquired by Trimble from Google in June 2012. SketchUp allows its commercial clients to create 3D
models of buildings, furniture, and landscapes. It also allows to customize the interfaces and thereby
widens the scope of possibilities for 3D designs and shares 3D models as walkthrough animations and
scenes with realistic lighting and shades. With SketchUp, importing and exporting files, animations from
other programs for modeling or image editing is very easy.
