Jeff Branch is a woodworker and blogger. In the pre-SketchUp years, the majority of Jeff’s furniture design was via pencil and graph paper. Jeff now designs furniture projects using SketchUp Pro, which he also uses as an illustration tool in the project plans he creates.
There's more to SketchUp than 3D modeling. But you know that, right?
For presenting work to clients, planning boards, contractors -- whomever -- we still use 2D drawings to convey design and detail. That’s pretty clear.
We use software to solve problems. Sometimes that problem is tackling work email, and sometimes that problem is beating your friends at Mario Kart. Think about that for a second: video games are so engaging that you actually look forward to solving the problems they present. You even invite your friends over to help!
An accomplished architect and artist from Mexico, Andres Souto is no stranger to thought-provoking design. His most recent (and award-winning) project achieves just that -- by exploring the relationship between the digital and physical worlds, with 3D Warehouse at its core.
It's that time of year: our latest desktop update, SketchUp 2017, is available to download today! The best way to explore our software is to use it: so watch this video, then jump into a new SketchUp and orbit for yourself!
LayOut 2017 is available, and you know what that means! That’s right! Massive improvements to DWG and DXF output. This release includes several enhancements that will help SketchUp and LayOut fit into your CAD workflow like never before.
