    Default Anyone use Google Sketchup?

    Has anyone used Google Sketup. I've been playing around with it for a while, and for a free program, it's pretty good.

    I have used it quite a bit, I just lost a pile of my models but do check out the 3d warehouse before you re-create a bunch of stuff...

    Laser (the acronym derived from Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation) is a spectacular manifestation of this process. It is a source which emits a kind of light of unrivaled purity and intensity not found in any of the previously known sources of radiation. - Lasers & Non-Linear Optics, B.B. Laud.

    Excellent.
    I've created some accurate scale models:
    Laserwave LWG300mW module & PSU, Flexmount, Scanpro 20k scanners and a few more bits (see below)
    I'll put them on the ftp if any wants to use them

    Those are pretty sweet the FTP is nifty, but add them to the 3D warehouse so everybody can use them ...

    Question

    Is there anyway to get these into a program to convert them to something scannable?

    Once created, they save as .skp files. I guess there's something out there that can convert, maybe.
