  • Define and Save custom Profiles
  • Automatic orientation of profile extrusion along any path
  • Full control of profile orientation along a path

  • NEW Easier editing of paths
  • NEW Profiles are now stored as editable SKP files (but don’t worry - your custom Profile libraries from version 1 can be easily imported and automatically converted)
  • and much more!

A detailed user guide is included with the installation. Inside SketchUp, go to Extensions->Profile Builder 2->Help to view the complete documentation.

Thousands of profiles packed in with installation:

  • AISC Steel Shapes (C, HSS, L, S, W)
  • AITC Glulam Profiles
  • more than 1400 Moulding Profiles
  • Handrails
  • Lumber
  • Concrete curbs

Due to the current limits of the Extension Warehouse, I am not able to provide an upgrade option for Profile Builder Pro (version 1) customers. Instead, I am offering an introductory price for ALL PB2 customers of $37.50 US (25% discount).

A 30 day free trial is available as well, so take it for a test run and let me know what you think!


Bought Profile Builder 2. But it will not fully install into skecthup as it says its missing a license number
There is no menu to even enter a license number within my extension warehouse.

Ive have updated, uninstalled, reinstalled, disabled, enabled, and still nothing…
please advise

Hi Jason, There was a bug in the Extension Warehouse but it should not be fixed. Please try un-installing and re-installing again.
