There are various lessons ranging from learning about area and volume to studying building and community design – whose concepts are best exemplified in 3D. SketchUp can be applied to different segments of education like geography, social studies, history and industrial technology. With the application of SketchUp students get the ability to envisage geometry and other mathematical concepts without having to create their own models. Students can symbolize various "what if" kinds of situations which can assist them to visualize the size of very large objects. They can generate models to get used to architecture and design everything from games and toys to models of spaceships and cars.
Students who are undergoing training in Theater and film can apply SketchUp to conceptualize their sets. Students may utilize it to take part in community development projects which includes CAD, GIS, or other design functions. SketchUp is very useful for math students at all levels for understanding geometric concepts in a better way. Instructions or guiding questions can easily be imbedded into the model, to help students systematically examine the geometric features of a figure. And 3D design can easily be added to any number of classroom projects which are not directly connected with design. These are like designing a set for a play to creating visualizations of historical settings or about history by building a virtual history museum.
