SketchUp Pro 2017 is an easy to use and powerful 3D Modelling Software for Architectural Professionals which creates 3D Designs, 2D drawings and documentations from 3D models and supports BIM elements.
Today, SketchUp Pro is considered an 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.
What is Sketchup? Sketchup is a low cost 3D modelling program suitable for use in Architectural, Interior Design, Civil, BIM (entry level) and Mechanical Engineering, Film, and Video Game design. Free to use version is called SketchUp Make or Viewer, and paid commercial version with extra features professional features is SketchUp Pro. Sketchup program is known for easy to use and learn. Software provides access to an online Open source repository free-of-charge model assemblies (e.g., windows, doors, automobiles, etc.), Cloud Account, 3D Warehouse, where users contribute models. The program includes 2D drawing layout functionality, which allows surface rendering in variable "styles", supports third-party "plug-in" programs hosted on a site called Extension Warehouse to provide other capabilities (e.g., near photo-realistic rendering), and enables placement of its models within Google Earth.
SketchUp Pro 2017 version is once again faster and smarter than previous versions which comes with new time saving tools in Layout, Improved 3D Warehouse, BIM classification and interoperability such as; IFC and an ecosystem that makes it easier for Sketchup users to find and use the third party plugins, add-ons and extensions. Latest versions are added with; Trimble Connect for more collaboration, 3D Warehouse, Enhanced Layout API and Tables in Layout, Support for new Graphics and HD Monitors, Cloud references, Report Generator, Extensions Manager, Refreshed textures, Small flexible dimensions, Improved CAD Exports, SketchUp Mobile Viewer 2.1 and Skill Builders.
SketchUp Pro 2017 Licence comes with 1-Year Maintenance and Support Contract, which is upgradeable to 2 or 3-years at extra cost. Future renewal of maintenance contract is optional however it is highly recommened because this provide access to latest versions and various online features.
