Alternatives to Sketchup for Windows with any license

    • Sketch up is sold on how easy it is to use. Blender is god level complex. Guest • Jul 2017 • 35 agrees and 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Good generic 3D modeller, but not as suited for quick space modelling. naught101Jul 2017 • 27 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Blender is more geared toward 3D art like for gaming rather than structure modeling. Guest • Jul 2017 • 25 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • SketchUp is really easy, and Blender is not. Guest • Oct 2017 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • There is a steep learning curve to blender which can put those who are used to sketchup's simpler interface at a disadvantage. It's functionality is also for animation and 3d modeling, not exactly archeitechtual builds. Guest • Nov 2017 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's not easy enough as sketchup. It can be an alternative for 3dsmax and maya maybe. Guest • Oct 2017 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Sketchup is ideal for quick and dirty space + structure modeling. Blender is an in-depth 3D modeling software, and it's not easy OR quick to use for that kind of task. Guest • Jan 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • SketchUp is used for quick, easy, and simple modelling of things like buildings, rooms, or general objects. Blender is used for general modelling for characters, objects, complex environments, and animation use. While Blender supports and trumps SketchUp's featureset, Blender is a completely different beast for untrained individuals due to Blender's dramatically increased flexibility.

    • 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. Guest • Jun 2016 • 16 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • If you are looking for something related to home design, SweetHome3D is an excellent solution. But it is not a general purpose cad suite. Guest • Jan 2017 • 12 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Sketchup is a more generic 3D modeller. Sweet Home 3D is a tool for house and furniture designs. Guest • Mar 2017 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • one is a modeling software that alows to make anything from scratch the other(sweet home 3d) is specifically to make house and furniture arrangements and while it has some freedom, it is still limited to that idea Guest • Feb 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Feb 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • SH3D is great for home projects but lacks a lot when compared to Sketchup. Simply don't share enough features to be comparable. Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • Good 2D drawing, has isometrics as well, reads DXF but isn't an alternative to a 3D CAD software assembling blocks. FreeCAD is better but a difficult to make the parts. Guest • Mar 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
