Google SketchUp: Free 3d Modeling Tool

I’ve been playing with Google SketchUp— a free and easy-to-use 3D modeling tool. It allows you to make a model of just about anything. I think it is a great tool for drawing science equipment.

Below is one of my first creations– it’s a ringstand.

Go to CNET to read their review or watch their video of Google SketchUp in action.

Before you start playing with Google SketchUp, I highly recommend that you watch the three tutorials that Google offers– they were a big help.

Don’t have time to create 3D models? See what others have done. Google allows SketchUp users to share their creations in the 3D Warehouse. Happy modeling!
