Sketch is a vector graphics editor for macOS developed by the Dutch company Sketch B.V. (formerly named Bohemian Coding). It was first released on 7 September 2010[1] and won an Apple Design Award in 2012.[2]

It is primarily used for user interface and user experience design of websites and mobile apps and does not include print design features.[3] Sketch has more recently added features for prototyping and collaboration. Being only available for macOS, third party software and handoff tools may be used to view Sketch designs on other platforms.[4]

Program details[edit]

Sketch is used primarily for designing the UI and UX of mobile apps and web. The files designed in Sketch are saved in its own .sketch file format, though .sketch files can be opened in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and other programs. The designs can also be saved in the popular PNG, JPG, SVG, PDF, TIFF, WebP, etc., formats. The designs created in Sketch are utilized by app engineers to design mobile apps and by website developers convert designs into websites.[5]

Although Sketch was previously sold through the App Store, the developers pulled the app from the store in December 2015 and instead sold it through their own website. They cited Apple's strict technical guidelines, slow review process and lack of upgrade pricing as reasons for the decision.[6] On 8 June 2016, they announced on their blog that they were switching to a new licensing system for Sketch. Licenses would allow users to receive updates for 1 year, after which they could continue using the last version published prior to the license expiring, or renew their license to continue receiving updates for another year.[7]

    Robert Thsuster

    The trial version was very helpful in one of my larger jobs and the finished product was spot-on
    for the on-site install. The two floor registers fell right into place with the breakfast nook seating! The client LOVED the piece and we’re in conversation for another large job.

    ExpandAdam Harris

    SketchList 3D Pro is a really good CAD software for the DIY set. There are a few things that they could have included to make life easier for non-professionals, but it’s still got a lot of versatility so that you don’t need to be a cabinet maker to make use of it. All in all, I highly recommend this software, and will now be using it as my primary go-to when I need to work with cabinets.

    ExpandDon Neil

    Easy to use, very nice rendering and really helpful towards creating my material list, along with
    minimizing waste with the cut lists and diagrams.

    ExpandJohn R.

    Ease of use… works like a woodworker thinks rather than how a programmer thinks.

    ExpandCraig R.

    Very good support along with online education videos.

    ExpandFrank Willingham

    I looked for years for a design woodworking software program that would easily capture a design and enable modifications. I tried Autocad, Designcad, and Sketchup. As a result of my experience. I found all of these programs are very complicated, expensive, and carry a huge learning curve. Sketchlist has captured the best of these programs from a woodworker’s perspective. Furthermore it is easy to input dimensions and make adjustments as needed.
    Whether it is a simple box design or the molding that surrounds it, SketchList makes it easy.
    And it is very affordable.

    ExpandLee Peterson

    SketchList 3D Professional offers me all the features I could possibly use. It is particularly
    useful in estimating how much material I will need for each project, and for providing cutting layouts. Because I find it to be very accurate on material costs I feel comfortable with that part of my bids.

    ExpandJohn Lansing

    I am sorry it took me so long to purchase your design software, but boy when I did, the business boomed! I’ve been using your cabinet design software now quite extensively. I have designed and quoted on 4 jobs in the first month of receiving it and have successfully won 3 of those jobs. The fourth one was actually put on hold because of the customers situation!

    ExpandMike Oldak

    SketchList is unbelievable! I’ve use this cabinet design software package and it really pays off.
    Just the optimization of the cuts for the 4×8 sheets of plywood was worth the price. Saving even a sheet now and then pays for the software. I give the local wood shop my cutting diagrams and have them do all of that for me. This was especially important as my small shop didn’t handle large 4×8 sheets easily. Feel free to use the photos I sent if you like as examples of what can be done with SketchList on a first try.

    ExpandFred Eisis

    Our shop uses SketchList everyday, sometimes even directly with our customers standing over our shoulder. Most of all we love the design features that are related just to woodworking and the photo backgrounds from clients are an amazing feature. Furthermore we’re thinking of using the 3D PDF on a touch screen in our showroom.

    ExpandDan Longiaru

    I used your software for a wall unit for one of my clients. Up to now we’ve done everything with pen and paper. The 3D renderings absolutely blew them away. In addition, your software guided me in a detailed technical discussion with the clients about their requirements. Since that type of discussion sometimes uncovers requirements that affected the contract price — better to find out sooner than later.
