We use this for much of our planning and bidding process. Sketchup can create complex 3d models that help our clients see the finished product before they’ve agreed to a proposal. We also use it for making cut lists, estimating materials, and troubleshooting construction. We can even create as-built drawings of structures before we begin work. For our workflow, this is faster than Autocad.
