Google have bought SketchUp.

SketchUp is a very intuitive 3D program designed for drawing 3D architecture, I have been using this program for my projects. And indeed unlike other 3D program the learning curve is lots easier.

The reason Google bought SkethUp is Google Map. Yep - they planning to represent the whole planet in 3D with open source help.

If you check the Google 3D Gallery : http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/
Currently there is no entry for Indonesia. So buckleup people! Download SkethUp for free from http://sketchup.google.com/ and start modelling!

Tutorial videos are available from http://www.sketchup.com

SketchUp can import 3DS file. If the free version cant do it, then get the pro demo version. I have never try it though since I model everything in SkethUp.

Viz and 3Dmax is much more powerfull than SketchUp. But for modelling architecture, SketchUp is much more straightforward. With intuitive interface. Trust me you will love it!

Wah gua koq promosi sketchup buanget ya? hahaha

Whoah the rooftop is really hard. I do it real quick by making a cone. I was working using your file at first but then I end up making from scracth. I will upload the file to google map for everyone user later on.

Count me in! I've been a fanatic user of Sketchup. I think it is the best thing since sliced bread!

Actually last year I tried to model the entire city of Jakarta using Sketchup, but I could not find topographical map of Jakarta in DWG format (or any format). If any of you guys know where to get it, please let me know. I'm willing to pay for it.
