      If you are looking for something related to home design, SweetHome3D is an excellent solution. But it is not a general purpose cad suite.

      Very easy to learn. Has a huge library of "furniture" and other assets developed and shared by users. Has 3D photo's and video virtual tours. May not be that great for detailed framing plans and elevations.

      Sketchup is far more generic and can be used for creating 3D printing models. Sweet Home 3D is a targeted application designed for laying out house designs.

      SH3D is great for home projects but lacks a lot when compared to Sketchup. Simply don't share enough features to be comparable.

      Autodesk AutoCAD vs SketchUp opinions
      Most users think Autodesk AutoCAD is a great alternative to SketchUp.
      If you're talking about Autodesk software the 3D software is Revit, which is amazing, but AutoCAD is much more suited to 2D modelling and doing 3D requires a larger time investment or understanding of procedural coding etc. As for Revit, it leaves Sketchup in the dust, but it's also very expensive(I didn't see it on the list even after scrolling down, hmm).

      Onshape vs SketchUp opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Onshape is still a legitimate alternative to SketchUp, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      It's web based. I want native 3D modeling software.

      Linux = browser based, if I wanted browser apps I'd select web for platform.
