Foyr Neo offers a comprehensive suite of tools specifically designed for interior design projects, including –
- 2D & 3D space planner
- Highly curated render-ready product and material catalogs
- AI-driven, cloud-based, photorealistic 3D rendering & 4K walkthrough generation capabilities.
While Sketchup is a versatile 3D modeling software, it may not have specialized tools and features tailored for professional interior designing. It is particularly useful for basic 3D modeling and caters to a range of different industries.
Foyr Neo’s smart design canvas utilizes AI algorithms to learn each designer’s preference and customize their designing experience. It also automates numerous design processes. For example, while adding a door/window, the chosen product will automatically drop on the wall and a hole will be created as per the shape of the selected element.
Sketchup is designed for general 3D modeling use cases. To put things into perspective, doing the basic operation of adding a window on a wall might involve multiple steps and can take 2 to 10 mins depending on window complexity and user expertise.
Foyr NEO natively offers cloud-based, AI-driven, fast rendering with smart and simple lighting and environment controls and will always give you high-quality photorealistic renders and 4K walkthroughs of your design.
- NEO’s AI smartly adds ideal interior and window lighting as per your room size. It also accurately renders the materials used in your design to a degree that the leather on the sofa will appear exactly like its real life counterpart.
- With Neo, you can get a rendering of all 4 views of your room in just 2 minutes.
Sketchup requires third-party rendering plugins/extensions which you will have to purchase separately.
- Rendering is performed on your computer and so, you will require a powerful system that can handle a heavy load. Each render takes 15 – 60 minutes depending on your computer speed.
- The quality and appearance of the final render will also depend on your expertise with the complicated material and light settings of the third-party plugin.
Foyr Neo offers a captivating virtual walkthrough experience, allowing clients to immerse themselves in a realistic walkthrough of the designed space, enhancing design visualization and boosting client engagement.
- Using Foyr NEO, you can create high-quality walkthroughs of your design in just 5 clicks while its AI and cloud-based capabilities take care of the minor yet crucial details.
Sketchup offers certain third-party plugins which you have to purchase separately. You have to learn a highly complex system of setting up the camera paths using that plugin before you can start rendering the walkthrough. The rendering takes place on your computer, and you might have to wait 5-6 hours before its complete depending on your computer speed and bandwidth.
Foyr Neo provides a cloud-based platform that enables seamless collaboration among team members and clients, facilitating real-time project updates and streamlined communication.
While Sketchup offers some collaboration features, it may not have the same level of cloud-based collaboration capabilities as Foyr Neo.
Foyr Neo has a vast library of highly-curated render-ready 3D models of a variety of attractive and trendy design elements which can be easily customized as per your requirements. Just drag and drop these elements in your design to elevate it up several notches in no time.
Sketchup also has a 3D Warehouse with user-contributed models, but since this is a user-contributed library, the quality of the models is very inconsistent and might not be ideal in a professional design.

Foyr Neo provides a highly curated texture and material library replete with a range of customizable patterns and finishes, allowing designers to accurately represent their material choices in their designs. All textures in Foyr NEO inherit and exhibit authentic material information. For instance, if you apply a blue velvet fabric texture on your sofa from NEO’s material library, in the final render, the blue texture will look precisely like velvet looks in real life.
Sketchup may have a limited selection of materials available by default, requiring designers to source and import additional materials to achieve desired visual representation. In Sketchup, for imposing the materials on each texture, you need to use the materials from the third-party rendering plugin and need to deal with complicated technical settings for organizing each material. Without such complex and accurate organization, you won’t be able to achieve a good render.
