SketchUp is a 3D modeling program optimized for a broad range of applications such as architectural, civil, mechanical, film as well as video game design. Visualizing spaces in 3D is critical to the successful design of architectural spaces. With SketchUp, you can create and edit 3D models that let you quickly explore the interplay of light, color, space and form.
