Experience SketchUp in new ways

In order to solve the toughest design issues, you need the right tools. This is why SketchUp and iPad are the perfect (design) pair:

  • Work on the go, whether you're working on or offline;
  • Create in 3D with the ease of drawing manually without sacrificing precision with the Apple Pencil;
  • Access projects anywhere thanks to the mobility of iPad;
  • And share creations while traveling through AirDrop, text, email, or sync files with your favorite storage app.

SketchUp for iPad has all the basic features and some old favorites you'll probably love to see again - Entity Info, Shadows, Styles, Materials, Add Location, Tags, Scenes, Image export, Animation export and not to mention access to 3D Warehouse...and much more. Finally, this is the trusty old SketchUp, but on an iPad.

In addition, this all-new interface includes robust, intuitive modeling tools developed specifically for the iPad. SketchUp for iPad offers the professional features you need with the usability you want.

The highlights:

Auto Shape: With this new machine learning feature, you transform scribbles into 3D shapes in an instant. Even better, you can bring in Live Components: parametrically configurable objects that redraw themselves in real-time. What a time saver!

Markup mode: Do you like to edit designs with a red pen? Well, there's a great solution for this! Using the Apple Pencil, make notes and sketches on 3D models with a variety of styles, colors and strokes. When you're ready to turn those red lines into actual designs, use the Apple Pencil to quickly iterate in 3D.

AR view: Experience your projects in the context of reality with iPad's powerful augmented reality view capabilities. You' ll walk through pre-stored scenes in AR and explore your model at a very intense 1:1 scale.

Draw your way: Use Apple Pencil, mouse and keyboard, or multi-touch gestures to create in 3D. Whatever feels right for you!

Add Foto-texture Draw inspiration from the real world into your projects using your iPad's integrated camera. Take a photo and apply it as texture to any surface in your model. Simple.

Always connected: Trimble's cloud-based project management solution, Trimble Connect, is now at your fingertips. With Trimble Connect, you work on your preferred device - ranging from SketchUp Pro, SketchUp for iPad, to SketchUp for Web. You' ll always have the most recent file, so you' re always ready when the work demands it.

Cross-app functionality: SketchUp for iPad also functions perfectly with other apps. With the USDz export feature, you can create in 3D in SketchUp for iPad and then draw or paint in various other apps, such as Procreate and Morpholio Trace.
