Newest Review: ... you are able to create is also very straight-forward. Icons are there within the interface: 'Orbit' allows you to twist around where you click at the radius you're currently at, whilst 'Pan' lets you move up, down, left, right on a set plain within the space. What's great about SketchUp is that it also utilises keyboard and mouse short-cuts which makes it quicker to draft and move around - ... more

Google SketchUp is 3D design software. This review is about using SketchUp in a professional manner, for the purpose of demonstrating internal/external layouts, colour schemes, materials, locations, and ultimately for helping to produce realistic renders of buildings. Clients and planning authorities are the target, for these are the people who need to know what a building will look like before it has been the constructed. Sketchup is free, easy to use, and contains all the tools necessary to be utilised in a proper Architectural practice. I have hence been using it regularly on my placement at an office in Newark to produce 3D mock-ups of various projects - large and ... Read the complete review

Sketch-up is not only for designing models, and building's for plan's in your work. It can be used for a lot of thing's actually. The first week or two, I just built basic structures for the fun of it, houses and such. Then I realized what you can do with it. You can export models and then open them in other software to use. For example, you can export them and then use them for a 3D video game! Or something else. You can also export your creations to the 3D warehouse, basically, it's where everyone's creations are. They are available for download to use in your creations, and you can modify, edit them! The warehouse is a good feature and lets you share all ... Read the complete review

I decided to check out Google Sketchup after being told I would be using it at a later date in my Architecture degree at university. I found this program to be a great tool indeed, and easier to use than other pieces of 3D design software i have used such as PRO DESKTOP 7. It follows the same sort of rules as other packages, drawing planes and extruding them. This program is quite easy to learn but it does take some time to learn it. There are many tutorials on the Google Sketchup web page and on youtube. These tutorials allow you to pause the video and to do it yourself at the same time, which i found to be a great way to learn the program. I still use these ... Read the complete review

I really do find Google sketchup a wonderful tool I use it so often to help me with design work. I used to use other CAD software however, it was really difficult to use. That is why I love Sketchup so much, I find it so easy to get the finished product that I intended. The interface I find is really simplistic with the tools really well layed out making it ideal to use. There is also an impressive amount of tools that allow you to The finished object son skecthup are of a high quality which I find to be really good. I also love how there is a walking mode which allows your model to be walked around. The models can also be easily looked at from a variety of ... Read the complete review

I stumbled across this fantastic software after reading seantheprawn's review. Now I gave up architecture a long time ago, but I still love designing and this software will also help with my current studies. So what exactly is it? It is freeware 3d modeling program from google. This means that it is completely free to down load the basic one (like it is with google earth), and it will allow you to design models in 3d. What are its good points? -Free (always a bonus), - Very easy to use, - Doesn't take up much room on your computer, - good for a wide rang of projects., -online free training, -inference. *Ease of use* If you have ...
