I love sketchup. One time I made my entire room in it.

ihh JPEG compression ;)
The product seems quite interessting. Has anybody tried it and can tell how hard/easy it is to work with it? And can I use the output for commercial use?

Corsin, if you refer to the illustration of my post, GIF compression is usually inferior in terms of file size... even when it's line art. I compressed in both GIF and JPEG for this post and then checked the file sizes... well, the GIF ended up much larger. And if you don't refer to my post, well, then just forget about this :)

Okay here we go
Integrate this 3d-software in to Google Earth Plus and make the plugin default in the free and upper versions!
Thank you

This is a pretty cool program. Any idea how Google plans to use Sketchup?

I put a nice post with a couple of drawings on my blog www.webmetricsguru.com.
