sketchup 7, Ernest 4049921

SketchUp is a 3D modeling program designed for architects,
civil engineers, filmmakers, game developers, and related professions.
First released in August 2000 as a general purpose 3D content creation tool, with the tagline "3D for Everyone" and envisioning a software "that would allow design professionals to draw the way they want by emulating the feel and freedom of working with pen and paper in a simple and elegant interface, that would be fun to use and easy to learn. Google acquired SketchUp on March 14, 2006, attracted by SketchUp work developing a plug-in for Google Earth. Since then in the Goggle Earth itself can be found thousands of 3d models of important buildings all around the world which help getting a better understanding of space in 3dimensions.

SketchUp version 7 the latest version has incorporated new interfaces some of them you will find described in this booklet.
