What can I do with SketchUp?
You can use SketchUp to create 3D models of just about anything you can imagine. SketchUp is easy to learn and use, and is designed primarily for the conceptual phase of design.
People use SketchUp to create architectural, mechanical, landscape, and woodworking models, as well as to design the levels in games, and the sets and storyboards for movies and television shows.
SketchUp can export models to a variety of 3D* and 2D formats. Many of the standard CAD programs can import and work with files that have been exported from SketchUp.
