How Can We Help?

Communicating Your Designs

 NOTICE: In observance of the Memorial Day in the U.S., Trimble employees will be home with friends and family on Monday, May 29th. All emails will experience a delayed response during this time.

After you create a 3D model, you likely need to share your design with others. SketchUp’s tools for sharing and communicating how your designs look are as versatile as a Ginsu kitchen knife set.

Just like the Ginsu, SketchUp’s section planes enable you to slice your model quickly and easily, so you can share a cross-section of your model.

But wait! There’s more!

In SketchUp, you can also

And that’s not all you can do!

The ways you can share your designs go beyond SketchUp. In the 3D Warehouse, you can upload your model and share it with the SketchUp Community. If you’re a SketchUp Pro user, you have LayOut, which enables you to create 2D drawings and documentation of your model, including plans, sections, elevations, and perspectives.

Tip: For details about exporting a view of your model as an image file, see Using SketchUp Data with Other Modeling Programs or Tools, which covers how to import or export several different file types into or out of SketchUp.
