SketchUp Pro is the award-winning program that finally delivers a completely new way to design in 3D.

SketchUp Pro is a deceptively simple, amazingly powerful tool for creating, viewing, and modifying 3D ideas quickly and easily. SketchUp Pro was developed to combine the elegance and spontaneity of pencil sketching with the speed and flexibility of today's digital media. With SketchUp Pro you can create 3D surface models easily and visualise those with textures and animations. You can evaluate the shading of the sun, create landscapes, enrich your drawing with 3D objects (trees, people, cars, etc.), make sections of your model and walk through your designs.

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.


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



System Requirements



  • Windows 7 to 10 - 64 Bit

  • 3-button mouse with scroll function

Note: Windows Vista and earlier versions of Windows are no longer supported!

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 Quadro or GTX chip. 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!

System Check-Up Tool

If you have doubts about the compatibility of your system, you can download a special check-up tool, testing your system on the correct configurations.



  • macOS 10.13 to 10.15
  • WebGL compatible web browser

Minimum Hardware Requirements:

  • 2.1+ GHz processor
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 500 MB hard disk space
  • Video card 1+ GB 100% OpenGL*
  • 3-button mouse with scroll function

Recommended Hardware systeemeisen:

  • 2.4+ GHz processor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 1 GB hard disk space
  • Video card 2+ GB 100% OpenGL*
  • 33-button mouse with scroll function

Note: macOS 10.12 and earlier versions of macOS are no longer supported!

Video card

* If you are looking for a new system or upgrade, please pay extra attention to the video card. For Apple we recommend video cards compatible with a recent version of OpenGL. Integrated chip sets are not supported.

SketchUp History

New in SketchUp Pro 2020

Introducing Outliner

A BIG model organization change: Outliner. In an effort to increase model performance, you no longer have to create Layers upon Layers. Manage and organize your model straight within Outliner. Use the friendly eyeball icon to toggle between the major sections of your model, such as main floor plans and furniture.

New grips on bounding boxes

When you grab a point that is obscured in an object (such as a back corner or center point) and start to move it, your object will automatically go transparent when something in your model interferes with the object you are moving. This works with both the Rotate tool and Move tool. This will literally ‘transform’ your workflow. Don’t take our word for it: start positioning objects in hard to reach places to see what happens!

Better control of hidden objects

You’ll notice in your drop-down menu that we separated hiding objects from hiding geometry. How will this change your workflow? Well, this will give you the ability to better manage hidden geometry and hidden objects for an even easier modeling experience. For example, let’s say you want to edit hidden edges in a landscape or smoothed surface, but you still want to be able to hide objects that are nearby (like trees, bushes, or a building)...well you can do that now!

Updates to your SketchUp dictionary

SketchUp has a few updates to the naming conventions it uses when talking about SketchUp. This won’t change your workflow...but it makes sure you know SketchUp is saying a few things differently now.

Here’s the run-down! Objects are now a collective term for: groups, components, and dynamic components. This just means we don’t have to say “groups (slash) components” anymore ?. Also, Layers are now referred to as “Tags”. Keep in mind that these two terms are merely naming conventions and won’t influence your workflow.

LayOut 2020: document control

It’s all about taking back control... document control that is! The focus for LayOut was on improving the interaction between SketchUp & LayOut to save you time and [brain] energy. This means way less back and forth in SketchUp updating scenes to ensure your drawing comes out perfectly. Now you have more editing ability, directly in LayOut.

More power to adjust model views

LayOut now understands a lot more about your SketchUp model and what you’ve overridden. This means you can safely change a style or camera angle directly in LayOut without accidentally losing your changes (!!).

How do you know what’s different in your LayOut viewport versus your model? When you make changes in LayOut, parts of the menu bar will go dark gray, alerting you that you’ve made an override. Keep in mind: just because you made some changes in LayOut, doesn’t mean you’re stuck with those. You can always resync your viewports back to your SketchUp model if needed.

Improved customization of your drawings

Take those LayOut docs to the next level with different models and views. If you have one SketchUp model that exists across several viewports, you can now relink just one of those viewports to another SketchUp model. Previously, you had to delete that viewport, insert a new SKP model, and reset all your scale settings and viewport sizing. More efficient now? Yes!

And that’s not all! You also have the ability to toggle Tag visibility — straight in your LayOut doc! What does this mean for your workflow? You don’t have to create extra scenes just for your LayOut files, saving you a ton of time going back and forth between LayOut and SketchUp.
