SketchUp is a widely popular tool used by architects worldwide to quickly create interactive 3D models of their projects. These are great for showing clients because they can be rotated or zoomed in the app – giving a really interesting preview of a design concept.
A lot of architecture companies that we work with have created SketchUp models of their projects and want to showcase these on their website. What tends to happen is that they export certain views of a building as 2D images and upload these to their portfolio. Due to the simplicity of SketchUp textures however, these don’t look very impressive without any of the interactivity that makes SketchUp great.
