Tools for drawing Site Surveys in SketchUp.  

(Works in either SketchUp Make or SketchUp Pro versions 16 and later.)

All building projects start with a site survey: which defines the boundaries of one or more plots of land.

An accurate survey is crucial to determining the legal setbacks and coverages that limit building design.  

What you can do with this extension: 

1. Draw one or more land parcels from a legal description, surveyor's field notes or survey drawing.  Calculate property areas.  Use Feet or Meters. 

2. Each parcel is bounded by a series of straight bearings and/or arcs. 

3. Bearings may by one of two types:

  • Quadrant Bearings (angles always <90 degrees measured within the 4 quadrants: NE, NW, SE, SW) which are commonly used in North America.
  • Azimuth Bearings (angles <360 measured clockwise from North). 

4. Arcs sizes may be defined by radius and

  • Arc Length
  •  Chord Length or
  •  Center angle 

5. Arc orientation may be defined by:

  •  Bearing or Arc tangency
  •  Center Location or
  •  Chord Bearing 

6. Design any number of parcels in a subdivision. 

7. Convert an imported CAD file into a properly annotated survey drawing. (SketchUp PRO only) 

Full user Guide included.  Watch ALL the videos above for complete instruction covering advanced survey techniques.

While I love to use SketchUp for 3D design, many basic design tasks are fundamentally 2D. My extensions will enable and streamline such tasks. I am a licensed architect and have been an avid SketchUp user since the first beta release in 2000. (See my architectural website nearby.) I have been using 3D CAD since 1977, and also have developed extensions to other 2D and 3D CAD systems at various times since then.
