SketchUp

Version: 8 || Release Date: 2010-09-01 || License: Commercial with demo ($495) App Owner: joran

SketchUp is a deceptively simple, amazingly powerful tool for creating, viewing, and modifying 3D ideas quickly and easily. SketchUp was developed to combine the elegance and spontaneity of pencil sketching with the speed and flexibility of today's digital media.

Developed for the conceptual stages of design, this powerful yet easy-to-learn software allows for quick and easy 3D form creation, the result is an interface that supports a dynamic, creative exploration of 3D form, material and light.

PowerPC not supported on ver 8.0? Ver.7 still awsome. Not going to buy a new machine for Sketchup though.

AppFresh misreports the version number.

This superb application is a essential visualisation tool which only needs a few basic concepts and a bit of lateral thinking to learn. I managed to make a scale model of a space I was working on in my first attempt. Later, I was importing images and textures and exporting animations of concepts. Mind bogglingly great for a free app. I think my only quibble is if pan, tilt and walk were just one tool (modified by keystrokes) rather than different tools.

Latest version is 6.4.245.

AWESOME!

Not Universal? The application appears as "Intel" on my activity monitor.

Handy for quick 3D visualization.

This is a dupe, already exists at: http://osx.iusethis.com/app/googlesketchup

(or rename as avocade mentions)

The big brother to Google SketchUp. Please change the name to SketchUp Pro which is what the paid version is called now.

This is one of my all-time favorite programs. Amazingly intuitive--most 3D apps are quite hard to use.
