SketchUp is 3D modeling software that’s easy to learn, fun to use, and incredibly productive. Here’s what’s new in our latest release: SketchUp 2017! Same .SKP. New DNA Nothing Matters more than how fast, smoothly, and reliably your models render in SketchUp. This year, we made big changes to make SketchUp work even better. High DPI Modeling We've dialed in snapping, inferencing, and drawing, so SketchUp is as crisp as ever on high definition monitors (like Apple's Retina Display). Inferences abound... Often, the subtleties of inferencing make for 3D magic. We tweaked SketchUp's drawing paradigm this year to keep sketching smooth. 3D for everyone No matter how you observe color, SketchUp should work brilliantly. With new accessibility color customization for axes and inferencing, we invite you to paint your own shade of SketchUp. Got spreadsheets? Superb documents communicate through drawings and information, so we built Tables; a great way to manager spreadsheets in LayOut. Hi-fidelity DWGs Do you use SketchUp linework in other CAD applications? LayOut's enhanced DWG/DXF exporter is going to be your new best friend. Associated Dimensions Make a change to your model: any dimensions you've already drawn in LayOut will respect your edit. A special bit of SketchUp magic makes this possible.
