Sketchup for carpentry


Good morning,
as hobby I do little carpentry works. I would like to use Sketchup to realize 3D projects of my works with the possibility of having the esplosion of any single part of the project. This is the aim…
I would like to know if there is a specific free release of Sketchup (if possible an Italian version), where I can download it and if for 3d modelling it is possible to obtan the explosion of the component.
Many thank


Dear Matteo1970,
SketchUp is used by thousands of carpenters and furniture-makers all over the world. There is another forum on the SketchUcation web site that is devoted to woodworking. Go to
There are also several books, in English, that are for people who want to use SketchUp for woodworking. I recommend SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers, USD$12.99, from Taunton Press (
Hope this helps.
