Google Releases Free Sketchup Version


Google has released a free version of the SketchUp application for creating, viewing and modifying 3D images that it has acquired when with the purchase of @Last Software in March.

Google is also launching a web site called 3D Warehouse, where SketchUp users can store and share their designs and collaborate.

SketchUp has also been integrated with Google Earth, so that now SketchUp designs can be integrated with that popular mapping application, Google said.

The free version of Sketchupe is for personal use only. It is based on the existing SketchUp Pro 5, a fee-based version with a commercial license and more advanced features.

The fee-based version is intended primarily for professionals, such as architects, designers, builders, art directors and game developers, while the free version is aimed at hobbyists.

Right now, the free version is only available for Windows 2000 and Windows XP Home and Professional editions. A version for Mac OS X is in the works.

Other minimum requirements include 80MB of available hard-disk space, a video card that is fully compliant with the OpenGL application specification, Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher and Windows Media Player or QuickTime 5.0.
