SketchUp is a 3D modeling computer program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, landscape architecture, civil and mechanical engineering, film and video game design.
SketchUp is 3D interior design software that brings your ideas to life
The program includes drawing layout functionality, allows surface rendering in variable “styles”, supports third-party “plug-in” programs hosted on a site called Extension Warehouse to provide other capabilities (e.g. near photo-realistic rendering) and enables placement of its models within Google Earth.
Architecture can place SketchUp model in the reality.
- SketchUp was developed by startup company @Last Software of Boulder, Colorado, co-founded in 1999 by Brad Schell and Joe Esch
SketchUp debuted in 2000 as a general-purpose 3D content creation tool and was envisioned as a software program “that would allow design professionals to draw the way they want by emulating the feel and freedom of working with pen and paper in a simple and elegant interface, that would be fun to use and easy to learn and that would be used by designers to play with their designs in a way that is not possible with traditional design software. It also has user friendly buttons to make it easier to use.”
The program won a Community Choice Award at its first tradeshow in 2000.
- Google acquired SketchUp on March 14, 2006, developing a plugin for Google Earth.
- Trimble Inc acquired SketchUp from Google on June 1, 2012
- A new site was provided, Extension Warehouse, hosting plugins and extensions for SketchUp.
