Easy to use
Creating professional 3D has probably never been easier than it what is in SketchUp Pro. Start by drawing simple lines and shapes and push and pull surfaces to turn them into 3D forms. The clean user interface and the simple tools let you get up and running in no time. With contextual tips, an instructor panel for beginners, and many online video tutorials, help is always available. Every SketchUp Pro license also includes a year of free technical support.
More advanced users can start modeling from CAD and terrain data, photographs or even hand sketches. Build models with custom behaviors and attributes. Learn some of the useful short commands – and soon it is only your imagination and creativity that might limit you! Professionals in dozens of fields choose SketchUp Pro because it is flexible enough for any type of 3D modeling and communication.
Free textures and 3D models available
SketchUp Pro includes some useful textures in different materials, like wood and bricks. Simply apply a texture on a surface by dragging and dropping it. And although it is very simple, there is no need to design everything from scratch – SketchUp Pro’s 3D Warehouse provides many free models that you can use in your projects. In fact, it is the world’s biggest repository of free 3D models.
