SketchUp for iPad

Create, edit, and mark up 3D projects anywhere with SketchUp for iPad.

Capture your creativity on the go

SketchUp for iPad is the most accessible bridge for designers who have always dreamed of creating in 3D. Mark up designs, reimagine ideas, present the final concept, or start a project from scratch with the ease of drawing by hand. Take your design process up a notch in new, exciting – and mobile – ways.

A robust integration with our cloud-based collaboration platform, Trimble Connect, keeps files in sync across devices so you can move seamlessly between SketchUp for iPad, SketchUp for Web, and SketchUp Pro desktop design apps. Whether you’re connected to high-speed internet, or you’re working offline, take your work with you wherever you go.

Wherever your projects take you, SketchUp for iPad has your back. Draw and iterate quickly in 3D, review and collaborate with ease, and keep the project moving forward — directly on iPad.

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.

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.


As simple as sketching with pen and paper, create in 3D using your Apple Pencil.

Doodle something with an Apple Pencil (or your fingers!) and watch it come to life in 3D.

Mark up drawings and overlay annotations in 3D with different styles, colours, and strokes.

Import imagery and add real-world photo textures using your iPad’s camera.

Situate your 3D model in the physical environment using AR mode, and see your designs from a whole new perspective.

Speed up your design workflow by downloading from our library of over four million pre-built models, including foliage, fixtures, appliances, and furniture.

Rapidly prototype in 3D by pulling in parametrically configurable models from 3D Warehouse.
