We have enabled the SketchUp for Schools app on our district domain. This free online app is available through our G Suite for Education license and allows users to create, edit, and view 3D models.

SketchUp for Schools

To initially install it, visit https://edu.sketchup.com/app
and accept the permissions it requires.

Later you can return to that same address to invoke it or, in the Google Chrome web browser, it will have an entry in the Apps group on the left end of the bookmarks bar.

We also have district licenses for free installation of the Windows desktop version of SketchUp Pro. 

SketchUp Pro

The software is similarly used for 3D modeling and its LayOut can be used for plans, elevations, details, title blocks, and more. Have someone at your site file a Help Desk ticket if you need it installed on a desktop system.
Google Drawings available too
The simple and free Google Drawings app is also available for use in any Chrome web browser. It is embedded in Google Docs but can also be independently invoked as a stand-alone app.


Sketchpad app for Chromebooks, etc.

Another free online app:


Chrome Art & Creativity Extensions

There are also some other relevant Chrome extensions which Google features on its online store which can be used on Chromebooks as well as the Chrome browser on desktops, etc.:
