Google Sketchup Pro 6

I've been suprised that
Google has launched Google Sketchup Pro 6 in just few months after launching sketchup 6. The new recommended feature for this version is the LayOut (beta).

With LayOut (beta) you can:

  • Create compelling multi-page design documents and presentations.
  • Arrange and annotate multiple scaled images on a single-page.
  • Create customized elements and symbols for your presentations using 2D Vector graphics toolsets.
  • Create, document and present your designs using a single software package.
These are all in one, save time for doing photo touch-up and presentation panel. You know why? time is the assert for architects. :) Google has thought everything for you.

8 hours FREE trial version of Google SketchUp Pro is from availabe!
