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.

Developer's Description

Google SketchUp is a free, easy-to-learn 3D-modeling program with a few simple tools to let you create 3D models of houses, sheds, decks, home additions, woodworking projects, and even space ships. You can add details, textures, and glass to your models, and design with dimensional accuracy. You can place your finished models in Google Earth, share them with others by posting them to the 3D Warehouse, or print hard copies. Google SketchUp is a great way to discover if 3D modeling is right for you.
