SketchUp for iPad

Get Started

Create, edit, and mark up 3D projects anywhere with SketchUp for iPad. Start a free 7-day trial, or access the app with any paid SketchUp subscription


Built for working anywhere

Work doesn’t always happen in a traditional office setting; it happens on a job site, at home, or on the go. With 3D modelers purpose-built for iPad and web, SketchUp Go has the tools you need to get the job done no matter where you’re located. Quickly create in 3D with SketchUp for iPad, sync your projects to the cloud with Trimble Connect, and pick them back up using any device with SketchUp for Web. Working on the go has never been easier.

From sketchpad to SketchUp for iPad



Generate concepts quickly

Design quickly and easily on your iPad using smart drawing tools or sketch directly on top of 3D models with the Apple Pencil.

Bring in real-world context

Pull in satellite imagery for site context, texture models by taking photos with your camera, and import pre-made components of real products from 3D Warehouse

Mark up digitally

Streamline design reviews by marking up 3D models on your iPad where your feedback is consolidated in a singular 3D project.

Drive the project forward

Keep project stakeholders moving in the right direction by sharing design details and critical changes to the cloud with Trimble Connect


Wow-worthy presentations

Fly stakeholders through designs using SketchUp for iPad or SketchUp for Web and capture design feedback in real-time by iterating in 3D. To take it up a notch, toggle on AR mode and truly bring the design to life for clients. For stakeholders who want to access models on their own devices, they can view 3D projects on iOS and Android viewer apps for free.

Create when inspiration strikes

Brilliant ideas don't always hit you when it’s convenient — but a mobile 3D drawing space makes it possible to get work done wherever you are.


Cut confusion with 3D collaboration

Reduce the back-and-forth between stakeholders by collaborating in 3D on the job site. Zoom in on construction details, take precise measurements, and mark up on-site issues in 3D from your iPad. All feedback is stored in the cloud, so the team can stay coordinated and keep the project moving forward together.

Sketch anything in 3D. Simple.

With support for Apple Pencil, multi-touch gestures, and of course, mouse and keyboard, you can easily draw, swipe, and click to give form to your creative vision.


Mark up & move projects forward

Quickly redline 3D models, make field edits on the fly, and sync all of your changes to the cloud to keep stakeholders aligned while on the go.
