Getting Started with SketchUp
SketchUp is a free 3D modelling software from Google with amazing functionality. At PekaSys, we use SketchUp to model and share systems, and can then use Google Earth to geolocate the systems so that we have a record where each system is and what we use them for.
One of the great things about SketchUp is the 3D Warehouse. This allows you to share models online so others can download them into their projects, saving time through sharing. PekaSys shares these models online to save you work.
