Sketchup: Easy-to-use CAD and 3D modeling software

Sketchup is a 3D design and modeling tool that provides a visual rendering of all architectural projects: houses, buildings, warehouses, etc.

Sketchup, a simple and intuitive design tool 

While most 3D modeling software is complex and not very functional for novice users, SketchUp is built end-to-end to be a unique modeling system where anyone can create anything without having to focus on unnecessary components.

When the building is completely designed, a layout tool is used to cover the surfaces in order to obtain a rendering close to the reality of the product: 

  • The building's exterior,

  • Its layout and iterior design,

A perspective tool allows the building to be positioned in its neighbourhood to observe the visual coherence of the place.

Why use Sketchup in companies?

People who do not want to make a precisely measured model or do not need to use a more advanced system such as AutoCAD (2D/3D graphical modelling software), can simply draw and model their ideas with SketchUp.

It is so simple and easy to use that it can be considered as the Microsoft Paint equivalent for the world of 3D modeling.
