SketchUp Viewer for mobile is now free
SketchUp Viewer for smartphones and tablets (iOS and Android) is now free for all to use! We've taken what was a paid product and made it free to increase the overall value of the SketchUp platform for the end user. A more accessible presentation option increases flexibility for designers. There is also an option to pay $9.99/year to access the app's AR capabilities.
What is SketchUp Viewer?
Bring 3D models to life on tablet or phone using SketchUp Viewer. Navigate and present your own SketchUp projects, or explore the millions of free models in 3D Warehouse for FREE! That’s right, SketchUp Viewer is now a FREE app!
Explore, present, and communicate in 3D. Here’s how:
Open or download models directly from 3D Warehouse or Trimble Connect. You can also open models using the iOS ‘Open In’ feature, for example when opening .SKP files sent as email attachments.
NEW!: SketchUp Viewer now supports Apple’s Files app, making it easy to open models from Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud and other file storage apps.
NEW!: Augmented reality (AR) viewing features enable you to experience your 3D models by merging them with the world around you. (Available via in-app purchase. $9.99 USD/yr.)
NEW!: With the Select tool and Entity Info panel you are able to get information about edge lengths, the area of faces, volume of solids, and component and group definitions.
Navigate using multi-touch gestures for orbiting, panning and zooming.
Jump to the most important places in your model using scenes you set up in SketchUp’s desktop and web modelers.*
Switch between perspective and orthographic cameras for production and architectural drawings.
Take measurements using the Tape Measure tool and adjust unit preferences to see measurements, dimension strings and Entity Info in the units of your choice.
Turn layers on or off to control the visibility of parts of your model.
Control the look and feel of your model by adjusting Edge and Face styles, including X-ray mode, along with toggles to control the visibility of Hidden Geometry, Section Planes, Section Cuts, Axes, and Watermarks.
Move existing section planes to get just the right interior view of models, or visualize important elevation and plan views.
*The app supports the following scene properties: Camera location and properties, Hidden Geometry, Visible Layers, Active Section Planes, Standard Edge Styles, Face Styles, Background/Sky/Ground Style settings, Watermarks and Axes Location.
