Sometimes the easiest way to design an installation of any kind is with a biro on the back of an envelope. Sometimes though, the easiest way is to use a CAD (computer-aided design) programme like SketchUp for a full three dimensional effect.

SketchUp has around 40 million users worldwide, making it the most commonly used 3D modelling programme on the planet, so it made sense for us to put all of our planks and posts on there so any designer could easily access them to put into their own plans.

We have also added some sample designs of platforms and boardwalks to help you on your way if that’s the kind of thing you’ll be designing.

Obviously, all of this is free of charge, so please help yourself.
