What is SketchUp?
SketchUp is a deceptively simple, amazingly powerful tool for creating, viewing, and modifying 3D ideas quickly and easily. SketchUp was developed to combine the elegance and spontanity of pencil sketching with the speed and flexibility of today’s digital media. Developed for the conceptual stages of design, this powerful yet easy-to-learn software allows for quick and easy 3D form creation, the result is an interface that supports a dynamic, creative exploration of 3D form, material and light. SketchUp combines a compact yet robust tool-set with an intelligent guidance system that streamlines the 3D drawing process. Create 3D models and share them with the world! SketchUp is software that you can use to create 3D models of anything you like. It’s the easiest program you can use to create three-dimensional models of buildings, furniture, and everyday objects. And you can get your hands on a fully useful SketchUp demo version copy to try it your self!!!
Getting started with SketchUp
Most people get rolling with SketchUp in just a few minutes. Dozens of video tutorials, an extensive Help Centre and a worldwide user community mean that anyone who wants to make 3D models with SketchUp, can. People haven’t always found it easy to draw three-dimensional images on two-dimensional surfaces. Even with computers helping out, you can still run into problems. Most 3-D graphics programs have very difficult learning curves and they cost a fortune. SketchUp put the world of 3-D graphics upside down!!! With SketchUp, you start off with simple tools that are familiar if you’ve ever used a computer.
3D for Everyone!
Design software has been around for decades and is clearly here to stay. But we think something has been missing – the freedom, flexibility and fun that should go hand-in-hand with the design process. It’s our view that while traditional CAD software is necessary for developing detailed drawings, it’s simply too complex for most conceptual design work. SketchUp bridges the divide between design utility and fun! As designers ourselves, we created SketchUp as much to satisfy our own wishes as those of our users.
