Bring 3D models to life on iPad or iPhone 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. For information and instructions, please visit: This app is recommended for iPhone/iPad devices running iOS 11 or higher with a minimum of 1024Mb of RAM (Retina iPads or newer, iPhone 5 or newer). The AR feature uses ARKit and is compatible with iPhone 6s and newer, iPad Pro, or any 2017 iPad or newer, running iOS 11 or later.

  • Great app!

    Used regularly, love it!
  • Good spot for architectural ideas

    This isn’t the easiest app to use even with the tutorials. Secondly the app doesn’t operate the same way as the full site does. It’s still easier to take notes then head back to the laptop. Bdubya2222
  • Excellent way to present designs

    I love this app for showing my wife furniture design ideas. I have only viewed small sized models (~6MB) but they load and quickly manipulate well. This is on a plain iPad (I.e. not Pro).
  • Great app

    Viewing my models on this app is flawless as far as performance goes. It’s actually smoother than on the laptop I use to put these models together. My only complaint is when models are imported from pc to mobile, lighting and shadow effects are removed. I’m sure it’s because of performance but if there is a toggle setting to add or remove these effects that would be perfect.
  • Doesn’t work for me

    By Hedden West
    I did not find the “open” command even though I downloaded the skp file to my phone. And I have no idea what the 2 included skp files are for.
  • Only for simple models

    By DNVR1
    Couldn’t open a detailed room model stored on Google drive. Only seems to handle simple models. I was able to open a 10 mb file, but got a warning that the file size was very large...really? I work with photos much bigger than that.
  • Starting up

  • Useless

    Impossible to use
  • Works great!

    Seems to be very stable. Ability to orbit an object is smooth and works fine. Great to allow viewing on an iPad.
  • Fast and efficient.

    Great app to view things on the fly. Larger models load up very well. It gets the hob done AND it is FREE!!! Awesome. Good job guys.
