Google Sketchup plugin released

by Giles Turnbull

The free Mac version of Google Sketchup is not quite ready yet, but in the meantime the Sketchup team announced availability of the Sketchup Google plug in for Mac OS X, which provides owners of a a Sketchup license with direct integration with Google Earth.



The free version of the software is licensed only for personal use; professionals are still required to shell out about $400 for the Pro version. The additional pro features include better export options (especially 3D export formats, animations and walkthroughs) and email tech support.



I never fail to be amazed by the kind of work Sketchup allows people to produce.
