Sketchup Pro is a professional 3D modeling and drawing tool that’s designed to help people unleash their creativity and develop intuitive 3D models on their desktop. It’s a full-featured tool that offers a variety of designing tools that’ll make your designing process easier and more productive. One can use SketchUp Pro to develop high-scale 3D-models with extreme precision and 100% accuracy.
SketchUp Pro is meant for people who want to step up their designing capabilities and work on different 3D projects including residential architecture, commercial architecture, and even internal architecture. With SketchUp Pro 2021, you’ll be able to draw all your visual ideas in 3D and share them with your team members easily.
While its interface hasn’t been changed much, there are several new key features in the all new SketchUp Pro 2021. For instance, the 2021 edition has brand-new 3D-objects that’ll streamline your entire workflow and help you complete your projects at the earliest. Also, you get a new “Predesign” tool that’s designed to understand the natural environment before starting the actual designing process.
SketchUp Pro offers extensive customization. You can practically download any project and customize its elements to give it your own creative touch. This is a great feature for designers who often have to work on re-designing projects. It also has a fully-functional designing toolbox that’ll make it easier to work on highly complex projects. You can also integrate dedicated extensions to enhance the overall functionality of the software and make your designing process smoother.
Moreover, it’s always a hassle to write-down project reports while working on a 3D model. With SketchUp Pro, however, that’s not the case at all. Designers can use its built-in editor to create 2D reports of their entire project and instantly share them with all the stakeholders.
What’s more? SketchUp Pro is packed with a remarkable and probably the most appealing update, i.e. Predesign. It’s a dedicated climate research tool that’ll help you to get familiar with the natural environment of the current project site. This will make it much easier to dive into the designing process without committing any unexpected blunders.
SketchUp was first developed by a startup company named “Last Software”, and acquired by Google Inc. in 2006. After six years in 2012, it was acquired again by Trimble Inc. (was before “Trimble Navigation”) – a mapping surveying company.
