SketchUp 8.0 Free Download

If you've tried 3D tools modelling programs before, and been put off by their complexity, SketchUp will feel very different. Not least because the program allows you to directly import models created by other users.

Click File > 3D Warehouse > Get Models, for instance, and a Google search window opens where you can find interesting models. There are landmarks, like Tower Bridge in London or St Peter's in Rome; more general building types, like police or fire stations; general scenery, such as trees or hedges; and if you're modelling the inside of a room then you'll find tables, chairs, TVs, everything you need to create a realistic environment, all of which can be imported in a few clicks.

And new features in this release include model geo-location with Google maps, colourful and accurate 3D terrain, the ability to create models by tracing photographs, and the Building Maker, which helps you create 3D buildings from images in Google Earth.

SketchUp 8 Pro takes all these features, and adds valuable extras, like the ability to import and export DXF and DWG files; work on 2D vector images in the 2D LayOut program, saving them to PDF or EPS files; and export your models to 3D formats including 3DS, OBJ, XSI, FBX, VRML and DAE.
