Here are the Top 5 Free Alternatives to SketchUp

A simple, intuitive interface is available in SketchUp software released in 2000. They believe in thinking in 3D and drawing in 3D. You can learn the workflow in a matter of minutes, and most of it is easy to understand.

This article has compiled a list of 3D modeling software that gets the closest to SketchUp’s usability and features while still being difficult to find. Also listed is the next loosest tier above those who do not require something quite so close. There is no end to the number of 3D modeling programs available outside of the SketchUp alternatives.

1. Revit

Architectural and interior design firms are very fond of SketchUp. Revit might be the main competitor for this application. In 2002, Autodesk acquired this software, and it has been updated every year since then. In Revit, you can design architecture and work on structural engineering (BIM).

The program is more technical than SketchUp but also offers a more comprehensive toolset. Taking this into account alone makes Revit a much more complex program to use.

Moreover, it requires greater computational power to function smoothly. Although this software is relatively expensive, it’s worthwhile to consider it for architecture projects regardless of its cost.

2. Tinkercad

The program is geared towards newcomer in both 3D printing and CAD. An engineer from Google founded the company in 2010 to make the 3D design more accessible to non-technical users. Autodesk acquired the company in 2013, and since then, it has become increasingly popular with 3D printer enthusiasts.
