Google released SketchUp 7

Google released SketchUp 7, the newest free version of its 3D modeling software, along with its paid version, SketchUp 7 Pro. Like previous iterations of the software, SketchUp 7 will still allow you to model just about anything you’d like as long as you start with a pre-designed template. The software offers simple templates that help you gauge size through feet or meters, but it also includes architectural design, Google Earth, and a product design template to aide you in your modeling endeavors.

SketchUp is software you can use to build 3D models of anything: your house, killer robots, furniture, trees, abstract art — anything. Architects and engineers use it to design buildings and other structures.

Here’s what’s new:

  • a new class of “smart” objects called Dynamic Components, which are simpler to work with for new modelers are added.
  • a better link between SketchUp and the rest of the 3D world, made it possible to “sign” your models, and added Google Docs–style collaboration and sharing to our 3D Warehouse.
  • Adding powerful features for experienced SketchUp Pro users –SketchUp is only half of the SketchUp Pro suite; the other half is all about sharing your work with your clients. LayOut 2 lets you create multi-page documents and presentations. Your models are linked to your LayOut file so that changing the former automatically updates the latter.
