Google SketchUp

I was messing around with Google and decided to look at all the stuff they have available to you. (BTW I am in no way affiliated with Google or anything.)

I found SketchUp, a free 3d drawing program which is actually kind of fun to mess around with. Considering I can't draw I managed to make a 3d... thing. LOL.

I wanted to share the link with people who could draw, just in case anyone wanted to try it. 3d Betta's would be cool. :)

It is pretty easy to use, is free, and has tutorials. I don't know if you need to sign up with a google account or not though in order to download it. I already had one, so I guess you would need to see.

Anyways, hope you all have fun, and Best Wishes!

LOL that's about how I felt :D I started with the tutorial template but ...didn't exactly follow all their instructions. ;) Then again this is coming from someone who can't figure out paint, paintshop pro, photoshop, or anything like those programs LOL (I guess i'm too old now ;) )

The thing I ended up with was a 3d peanut kind of thing with a tail and a window. Still fun though :D (The peanut with a tail was supposed to be a 3d Betta. Once it wasn't close looking I just started playing with the different options. LOL

Hope you have better luck :D

I use sketchup for work - Ive been teaching myself tho so its a slow process. I take the architect's plans and build 3d models of the houses. Its rather fun but very hard to do.
