With just a few simple tools, you can create 3D models of houses, sheds, decks, home additions, woodworking projects - even space ships. And once you've built your models, you can place them in Google Earth, post them to the 3D Warehouse, or print hard copies.

Google SketchUp is free for personal use. No registration is required. Download it now to start modeling.

What happened to Google SketchUp?

SketchUp was developed in 2000 by @Last Software. In 2006, it was acquired by Google and in 2012 Trimble bought SketchUp from Google. This is the Google version, which has been discontinued. The latest version from Trimble can be found here.

What's New:

  • Now supports textures.
  • Using Google SketchUp, creating textured models is as easy as taking a photo and applying it to a 3D model.
