SketchUp 2024 is here!


Experience, work collaboratively, create and communicate
with the most intuitive 3D design software available.

SketchUp is simple, yet powerful software for anyone who wants to create, share or download 3D models.
SketchUp is used for a wide variety of design projects, including architecture, interiors, landscaping and video game design.

Whether it's a bathroom or skyscraper; you can make your idea a reality with SketchUp!


SketchUp Pro

There’s a reason SketchUp is synonymous with friendly and forgiving 3D modeling software: it doesn’t sacrifice usability for the sake of functionality. Start by drawing lines and shapes. Push and pull surfaces to turn them into 3D forms. Stretch, copy, rotate and paint to make anything you like.



LayOut is an extra application that comes with SketchUp Pro. With this you can make professional presentations of your SketchUp Pro models in no time. With LayOut you can place SketchUp Pro models in multiple views on a template (e.g. your house style) and add graphic elements such as titles, arrows, pattern fills, logos and photos for printing or screen presentations. So you can easily create a professional presentation document or you can fascinate your customers with a nice screen presentation!



StyleBuilder is a tool that you can use to create customized sketchy-edge Styles. You can apply these Styles to your models to make them look hand-drawn. Sketchy-edge Styles can look like anything -- wavy pencil lines, quick pen strokes, marks from a fat stick of graphite -- if you can get them into your computer, you can make them into a Style.



This tool provides designers of buildings, outside spaces, and master plans with the information they need to properly factor climate insights into their initial concepts, getting designs started in the right direction before the modelling process begins.


SketchUp Pro is equipped with the following functionalities to offer you easy, but versatile 3D modeling.



System Requirements



  • Windows 10 or 11 - 64 Bit
  • WebGL compatible web browser

Minimum Hardware Requirements:

  • 2.1+ GHz processor
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 1 GB hard disk space

Video card

* If you are looking for a new system or upgrade, please pay extra attention to the video card. We do recommend video cards with a nVidia RTX chip, preferably form the GeForce range. These cards support OpenGL very well and have qualitative drivers. OpenGL is the heart of the 3D view for SketchUp Pro. On-board video cards (soldered chipsets) are strongly discouraged! If you have any doubts about a new video card, please view this benchmark (preferably high-end).

SketchUp History

New in SketchUp Pro 2024

Ambient Occlusion

A new style setting that adds visual emphasis to corners and edges, increasing perceived depth and realism within the SketchUp interface.

Trimble Connect Integration

Trimble Connect is now a native integration within the desktop application. You can access your cloud-saved files almost instantly and saving your file preserves progress and updates the file’s version history in Trimble Connect.

Link Sharing

Generate view-only shareable models to distribute to colleagues and clients. The recipient doesn’t need to have the software installed.

Ground Mesh in Scan Essentials (Studio only)

Quickly and efficiently turn a terrain point cloud into an accurate, quad-face based, ground mesh with a chosen resolution. The Ground Mesh tool automatically extracts terrain information - whether from a full point cloud, a segmented or classified cloud. Choose from Fit Cloud, Rectangular, and Bounded options.

Add Location

Simplify the process of adding site terrain to your model. Adjust contour and tessellation density to suit your needs with the mesh density slider. Select low density for lighter, faster files and higher density for more detailed and precise terrain.

New Graphics Engine for SketchUp

Experience substantial upticks in re -draw and model load speed when you orbit, zoom and pan. You have the option to toggle the new engine off or on based on your hardware and system.

New Graphics Engine for LayOut (LABS)
LayOut’s new graphics engine brings the on-screen drawing of SketchUp and LayOut entities into a more modern infrastructure and improves performance in file navigation and responsiveness.

Draft Mode in LayOut

Enabling the Draft Mode in LayOut improves speed and responsiveness as you navigate or draw in your file - especially noticeable with heavier, more complex files.

Benefit from enhanced mapping to IFC class attributes, and maintain data-rich models for improved project performance and BIM exports.

New 3D file formats

Import and export support for USDZ and gITF file formats.


Now you don’t need to ‘Save As’ to access documents in 2022 or later.
