What is SketchUp?

SketchUp is a premier 3D design software that makes 3D modeling for everyone. It's used for a wide range of 3D modeling projects like architectural, interior design, landscape architecture, video game design …

 

SketchUp provides a Library where third parties can add different models they've build, allowing everyone to use these models in their designs.

 

Renson also created a page on SketchUp's 3D Warehouse. On this page our Outdoor models are completely drawn according to the right restrictions. You can easily download these models in a new or existing SketchUp document.
