I am excited to share that today Trimble announced it entered a definitive agreement to acquire SketchUp®, one of the most popular 3D modeling tools in the world, from Google.

SketchUp is used by millions of users-ranging from architects to engineering & construction firms to building & design professionals-for designing, modeling and visualizing projects. Learn about our SketchUp plans at
