Google SketchUp

Filed under: Technology — jasony @ 10:45 am

SketchUp was bought by Google a few months ago. Google has now made their version free!
I used SketchUp’s demo (10 hours of unlimited use) a year ago to design an woodworking project for a client, but I couldn’t justify the high price. So I’m giddy that Google is now offering a version for free. A friend and I were talking about this about a week ago and wondering if Google would ever do this sort of thing. Guess now we know. This means Google gets a legion of free designers out there to populate Google Earth with models. How long before every building in Google Earth is modeled in 3d? What are the possibilities then?

(Mac version lists as “coming soon”. Guess I’ll have to be a little more patient)
