What a revelation this is… Google SketchUp is amazing! As I’ve been writing some articles about LittleBigPlanet and the mechanics it supports, I’ve been wanting a means to draw some of the designs. Having checked out the most common open source CAD packages, I was sadly disappointed. Then I recalled hearing about SketchUp and decided to check it out.
I was up and running, and drawing some (for my first efforts) not bad diagrams to illustrate my articles.
Check out this page to see whats possible in around 20 minutes with SketchUp. On all the other applications I tried I couldn’t even draw a line! So, if you want a nice easy to use means of doing some CAD type work, give SketchUp a try.
