SketchUp is a handy 3D modeling program that provides a wide range of drawing applications particularly for architectural, interior design, civil and mechanical engineering industries.
Formerly owned by Google, the program has a freeware version and also a paid version that offers additional functionality for users.
The program has a range of features including an open source library of model assemblies, a 3D warehouse to share models and a program, which allows users to draw layout functionality plus a range of plug-in programs for enhanced capabilities including photo-realistic rendering and integration with Google Earth.
A SketchUp professional can create sketches from conception to your concept’s fruition including programming, diagramming, design development, detailing documentation, RFI’s – basically every element of the 3D modeling process.
3D modeling improves the efficiency and general look & feel of designs. 3D modeling allows for an improved speed and accuracy compared to 2D designs and is the most up to date format for displaying drawings and models in the design, architecture and engineering fields.
Benefits of using the 3D modeling capabilities of SketchUp include:
Speed and accuracy - 3D modeling can construct sites or structures much faster than 2D drawings or models can. 3D models clearly outline intricate aspects of a site or structure because they provide a more accurate & detailed picture.
Optimal Precision - Professionals can use 3D laser scanning to create micro models of real spaces. This means architects and engineers don't have to spend time measuring and re-checking parts of a structure to develop a precise 3D model.
Scenario visualization - SketchUp professionals can manipulate 3D models in a way they often can't be done with traditional 2D CAD drawings. Professionals can validate their plans and identify any issues or expected problems with the structure's design quality.
Quick turnaround - By using programs such as SketchUp & SketchUp Pro, architects and engineers can spend less time on the design stage of their projects and more time on each specific task. Professionals use 3D modeling to save themselves from time consuming reworking projects and increases in budgets.
