Can you do that in SketchUp?

In expos and conferences, in studios and on job sites, in workshops and meetups, in makerspaces and classrooms, in forums, at Basecamps, on YouTube... People who use SketchUp are everywhere. But for every SketchUp aficionado, it seems there are twenty more people who don’t realize how much is possible in 3D.

For all you SketchUppers out there -- you know who you are -- we think it’s important that other people understand what you do. It's time the world learned the power of Orbit. So, the next time someone asks, “Can you do that in SketchUp?”, just point them our way... we’ve got your back.


Yes, you can do that in SketchUp.

Special thanks to the SketchUppers who helped us bring this story to life!
