Work without boundaries

Imagine beginning your design journey at home, continuing it during your commute on an iPad, and finalizing it in your office — all without a hitch. Whether you are at a construction site, office, or anywhere in between, Go defies traditional boundaries by helping you bring your designs to life with tools that travel with you. By sharing models in the cloud, you can access your designs from anywhere and with anyone.

Real-world integration

Go allows you to incorporate real-world context into your designs. Seamlessly pull in satellite imagery for site references, create custom textures with iPad's camera, and integrate pre-made components from 3D Warehouse, the world’s largest 3D model library. SketchUp isn’t restricted to your office space. Take your iPad to the job site and collaborate in real time. Analyze plan details, verify dimensions for reference, and provide markups to be stored in the cloud, ensuring that your entire team remains connected and well-informed.
