Editors' Review

SketchUp gives you the tools to create all kinds of 3D images and designs, from woodworking blueprints to urban planning designs. With multiple template options and an intuitive interface, this program lets you direct all of your energy into creating and not into fumbling through complicated menu options.

Pros

Template variety: No matter what kind of design you're looking to create, you'll likely find just the right template in this program. There are options for Construction Documentation, Landscape Architecture, Interior and Production Design, 3D Printing, and more. Additionally, each type of template lets you choose the system of measurement you'd like to use and on what scale.

Help options: This program can do a lot, and there are a lot of different resources in place to help you access all of its features. Depending on your experience level and the way you like to learn, you can make use of Video Tutorials, Self-paced Tutorials, a Getting Started Guide, Quick Reference Cards, or other Help options.

Cons

Time to learn: Because there is so much to learn, though, it can take some time to get the hang of using this program effectively. Beginners to design programs will likely take longer than users who already have some experience working with similar software; but few people will be able to jump right in and get results immediately.

Bottom Line

SketchUp is a smooth and efficient free program that provides a lot of functionality to facilitate all kinds of designing. Its plentiful Help resources make it accessible to even the most inexperienced users, but it does take some time to get the hang of all of the features the program provides.

"Great product -- until Google sold it"

June 01, 2015  |  By EllisBell

 |  Version: SketchUp 15.3.330

Pros

I learned 3D on Sketch-Up back when Sketch-Up was Google freeware. It doesn't have anywhere near the power of Blender, but it's a lot easier for a newbie to use. If you wanted all the bells and whistles, you can lay out $500 for Google's pro version, but I didn't find that necessary

Cons

Trimble has eliminated the freeware version. What Trimble calls "free" should actually be described as a trial version because it's only good for 30 days. If you want to get some hands-on 3D experience, there's no reason not to give the trial version a spin-through, but although Sketch-up is a convenient, easy-to-use product,it's in no way worth $500!

Summary

For serious 3D modeling with genuine freeware, use the open-source Blender. You won't be dependent on Trimble, with the risk that they could discontinue Sketch-Up or increase the price, leaving you with unusable files and a lot of work gone down the tube. Blender has a much steeper learning curve and it's interface is quite unconventional, but once you get into it you've got a 3D IDE that's going to last you a lifetime.

"Incompatible w/ Vista"

February 28, 2015  |  By shawn.lawrence

 |  Version: SketchUp 15.3.330

Pros

Prior to reformatting, I had the older version of Google Sketchup and it worked great.

Cons

I thought I would just jump online and download the latest version of Sketchup after reformatting. However, even though I specify that I'm searching for a version of the program that will run on Vista, after the download and file extraction, the install fails because it requires Windows 7 to operate. Can't seem to find an older version which would be nice.
