Sketchup is now FREE thanks to Google (12 Comments) (link)

Recently Agg put my design thread up in the interesting forum threads section of a news post. A number of members have since asked me what program I used to do the renders I had up in that thread. I used a piece of software called "Sketchup" by @last software. I found this program a few years back and ended up paying for a copy of it, but now thanks to the awesome people at Google you guys can download it for free. It's an awesome piece of design software and will allow you to create and share designs with other people. It now has built into it the ability to upload and download models from Google's newly created 3D Warehouse. It also plugs in to Google Earth.

You can get Sketchup here. It is 100% free.

I highly recommend this program for anyone who is thinking about experimenting with CAD or just wants to play with "the MS-Paint of the 3D industry".
