    Yes, trimble bought Sketchup in December of 2017. SketchUp gives way for designers to simulate models and test building plans indoors, before getting back outside to build the real thing. More than three million people run Sketchup on their computers monthly, including 85% of architects. The purchase by Trimble reunites the two companies after they merged in 2014, giving designers access to tools like MicroStation Resource Library (MRML) Technology that will help connect designs with construction documents. Trimble also offers technology that integrates 3D data into BIM workflows using aggregate surfaces over large geographical areas or mesh networks when desired detail is needed or when local terrain needs reconciling due to elevation changes.

    Answer: No, Google did.
    Google's acquisition of Trimble has many people speculating that the SketchUp team will be reassigned to work on GIS software, such as Google Earth and Maps. This acquisition makes sense considering that 3D imaging technology is fundamental to publicly accessible digital maps."

    "How can I integrate SketchUp projects in a virtual GIS environment," Dennis Zahka It's not out of the question for Google to have bought sketchup so they can "offer more great geospatial services," but it seems more likely they bought it because of their own tools that were using sketchup succesfully anyways."S

    Companies don't just outright buy competitors and close down, they often license the technology and revenue share with the company who developed it. We created a new entity called Trimble3D Utility to make our utility data collection software more effective. And since we never disclose details about acquisitions or mergers of any kind, I can't answer this question for you unfortunately. You would need to get in touch with trimble directly if you want more information. I hope this helps! Good Luck! █ █ Disclaimer: There may be affiliate links in this post (which means that we receive a small commission).

    Yes, Trimble purchased SketchUp. Trimble Inc. acquired the SketchUp company last August. The California-based company is best known for its 3D drawing program that has been used in home design projects around the world. Trrugged's purchase will be completed when it acquires all outstanding shares of securities if they are not freely held, according to their filing with the Securities Exchange Commission on Wednesday Feb 9th 2013.
