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.

What's new in version 17.2.2555

This maintenance release fixes a Windows-only bug introduced in the first release of SketchUp 2016, also known as "M0" [version numbers 16.0.19912 (Win 64-bit); 16.0.19911 (Win 32-bit)] where uninstalling SketchUp resets your default Internet browser. To avoid running into this issue, leave SketchUp 2016 "M0" installed prior to installing this update - i.e., install SketchUp 2016 M1 over your existing version of SketchUp 2016 M0.
