SketchUp Make 64-bit is a simple and easy-to-use 3D modeling tool that can be used on its own or as a Google Earth plug-in. With it, you can create 2D or 3D objects of any kind, and even change the used color schemes or materials of your models. Finished models can be printed, published, stored in the 3D Warehouse, or even published directly to the Google Earth where user created models of real structures can be seen by millions of visitors who daily use this service both on all modern PCs and portable devices.

Note: SketchUp Make is now SketchUp Pro.

SketchUp Make is a powerful yet user-friendly 3D modeling software designed for architects, designers, engineers, and hobbyists. Developed by Trimble Inc., it offers a comprehensive suite of tools for creating, editing, and sharing 3D models with ease.

There are many great modeling tools currently on the market, but the SketchUp Free was built from the ground up to be the first modeling program to novices, but leaving enough advance tools and services that those novices and advanced users alike have room to experiment, expand their knowledge and learn countless new things about the world of 3D modeling.

SketchUp for Web
SketchUp’s core 3D modeler runs right in your web browser.

Cloud storage
10 GB of Trimble Connect cloud storage so you can share your projects and collaborate with your team.

Mobile model viewing
View 3D models on your mobile device with the SketchUp Viewer app.

Import SKP, JPG, PNG file types, and export SKP, PNG, STL file types.

3D Warehouse
Access user-generated and manufacturer-produced models to give your projects context and life.

All you need is an internet connection. No credit card required.

This approach to simplicity and easy access to advanced tools is perfectly showcased in its interface, which offers a wide variety of tools, documentation, and tutorials that can provide each novice with easy acclimation. With SketchUp Make 64-bit, users can easily model and redecorate your living room, invent a new piece of furniture, model your city for Google Earth, use it as a tool for your school or university projects, introduce it into your work pipeline, and much more.

The Freeware version of this program can be used without limitations, but professionals will most likely be attracted to the paid “Pro” version that places a much higher focus on architecture and easier ability to transfer your drawings into 3D objects.
