Google Announces Free Version of Google SketchUp

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, April 27, 2006 – Furthering Google's commitment to making the world's information more accessible and useful, today Google is launching a free version of Google SketchUp, a simple, powerful tool for creating, viewing, and modifying 3D images quickly and easily. Available at http://sketchup.google.com, Google SketchUp is a 3D design and visualization application created for anyone who wants to build 3D models for personal use or for display in Google Earth.

Additionally Google is launching the 3D Warehouse, a repository of 3D content that serves as a single source for searching, sharing and storing the world's 3D content. Available within Sketchup ( http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/) the 3D Warehouse enables users to share their 3D creations and collaboratively develop 3D content for Google Earth. Both geo-referenced models (those that have been assigned a specific location in Google Earth) and non-geo-referenced (free standing) models are available in the 3D Warehouse.

Today's launch seamlessly integrates the powerful, easy-to-use modeling capabilities of SketchUp with the geospatial functionality of Google Earth, enabling users to more quickly and easily model the world around them in Google Earth.
