Advantage 2. Adjust to the lifelike drawings you'll create fast. That's because SketchUp is an intuitive, powerful and simple-to-learn 3D drawing tool.
Advantage 3. SketchUp allows you to render surfaces in an array of "styles". Pick from a variety of architecture that best suits your design and pleases your client.
Advantage 4. SketchUp makes it easy to integrate with software that furnishes additional capabilities. It also supports third-party "plug-in" programs.
Advantage 5. With SketchUp you can place your model within "Google Earth" - right on the actual site!
