1. MODELUR for Urban Design

MODELUR is a parametric urban design tool impeccably integrated into SketchUp. It helps user quickly create and test different urban design alternatives with the real-time calculation of key urban parameters like FAR, number of apartments, required parking spaces, etc. It also gives Interactive 3D Zoning that includes warnings when the design is not in line with zoning regulations (Buildings are too high or if they place too close together, etc.), GIS data import/export, Live Sync with Excel, and much more.


a) Boost your productivity design 3 to 5 times faster
b) Make well knowledgeable decisions
c) Increase confidence in your design
d) Work directly inside zoning policy
e) Quickly iterate and evaluate design alternatives
f) Focus on the design conclusion


a) flawless integration with SketchUp ,making it as simple as intuitive to use
b) Parametric Buildings, City Blocks and Land Uses - Interactive 3D Zoning
c) Live Sync to Excel only for Windows
d) Real-time calculation of key urban performance indicators (FAR, apartments, parking spaces, etc.)
e) Real-time zoning compliance check (FAR is exceeded or buildings are too close together, etc.)
f) One-click Import of OSM 3D buildings and 2D footprints - GIS (SHP or Geo JSON) import and export.

3. Simplify Contours Tool

This command reduces the number of contour segments.

Import contour line drawings that execute in other CAD applications. SketchUp will often convert polyspline contours into polyline that contain hundreds or even thousands of straight-line segments. This script reduces the number of edge segments that make up the contour lines, which reduces the overall file size making it easier to work with the contours in SketchUp.
