Google SketchUp Pro 6

Google has released SketchUp Pro 6, an update to its intuitive 3D modeling software that allows designers and planners to explore, communicate and present complex design concepts. "Google SketchUp Pro 6 now lets you create 3D models from photographs, match existing models to background photos, render sketchy effects and fog and mark your models with 3D text, logos and watermarks. With the new Styles palette, you have easy access to a collection of display settings, which you can save and share. You also have greater control, with new features like enhanced modifier keys that let you perform operations like "copy" while you move, rotate or push/pull." Google SketchUp Pro 6, a free upgrade for Pro users, is $500 and requires Mac OS X 10.4.

    I wasn't aware of that, but kudos to Google. The upgrade is free as well- not bad.

    That sounds like a cool feature: being able to create a 3-D model from a photograph. Now if only I had a need for such software.

    Google 6 Pro buggy

    Got the Pro version because I had bought an earlier version of Sketchup from @Last. It's not quite ready for prime time. It takes 5 minutes to start up then insists I have too many copies running even though there's only one. The free email tech support may eventually solve it, however after three days they have yet to respond.
