Google Sketchup ADT Plugin

Scott's House
Google SketchUp (free) is an easy-to-learn 3D modeling program whose few simple tools enable you to create 3D models of houses, sheds, decks, home additions. You can add details, textures and glass to your models, and place your finished models in Google Earth, share them with others by posting them to the 3D Warehouse, or print hard copies. With no training, and my first sketch, I was able to draw my house in just a couple hours.

The ease of use and flexibility of modeling in SketchUp provides a powerful alternative to using ADT Mass Elements. Now you can bring SketchUp model geometry directly into ADT/ABS in two ways:
  • As straight up geometry - all vertical surfaces become walls, all horizontal surfaces become slabs and sloping surfaces become roof elements.
  • As translated geometry based on material or layer.
