Better Drawings

If you need to add linework that’s not in your model, you can now create a scaled drawing in LayOut and sketch over a 3D model or draw from details to scale from scratch directly in LayOut. LayOut is even better at everything you need to draw details or create beautiful illustrations at scale. You can also import a DWG into LayOut and find illustrations already scaled to paper size. SketchUp projects can live side by side with CAD linework and take advantage of DWG libraries everywhere.

SketchUp now features Advanced Attribute fields so now it’s even easier to embed projects with useful information. BIM works best when information moves freely between applications. You can rely on IFC in SketchUp to transfer the attributes you assign and manipulate in projects. Generate Report aggregates component data so you can do things like configure reports to sum parts and quantities for schedules and cutlists, or create detailed estimates by adding up prices by layer.
