SketchUp - 3D for Everyone ***


SketchUp - 3D for Everyone
Posted by Picasa
- Last Software, Inc., makers of the award-winning SketchUp software, announces the release of SketchUp 5. SketchUp is a simple-yet-powerful tool that enables everyone to design and communicate in 3D on both Macintosh(R) and Windows(R) platforms.SketchUp 5 brings heaps of new features to designers worldwide, including a suite of cool new terrain tools called The Sandbox(TM), which creates easy ways to model terrain and similar organic shapes, add roads, building pads and parking lots. The Sandbox allows the projection of 2D geometry onto complex 3D surfaces -- with ease. A vastly expanded components library (from 145 items to over 3,000) allows design objects such as windows, doors, automobiles and desks -- and organic objects like people and animals -- to lend greater variety and detail to designs. Enhanced sketching tools include depth-cued edges that make the foreground of a model darker than the lines in the background, giving it a more realistic feel. The end-points tool highlights the corners of a model, and transparency maps offer full support for handling and use of images and texture maps. An improved user interface with new toolbars and icons gives SketchUp a new look while enhancing intuitiveness and simplicity. This includes "Snappy Dialogs" in which settings panels stay together, a wider variety of keyboard shortcuts, and improved online user guides.
