Freeware Google SketchUp for Mac offers a suite of powerful 3D drawing tools that lets you experiment and play with new designs. All actions are carried out using two button bars, one that runs down the left side and another that sits along the top of the work space. After you simply sketch and draw edges, the application fills in the objects to create 3D geometry.
This SketchUp Freeware for Mac is used by professionals and consumers alike. It contains a unique interface that allows 3D forms to be created, viewed, and modified quickly and easily. The core of its simplicity is that you draw the edges of the desired model in 3D space, just as you would using a pencil and paper. SketchUp infers your design intent and automatically determines the nature of the lines and fill shapes to create 3D geometry.
Free Google SketchUp for Mac handles perspective and alignment calculations automatically. You can then export these objects into CAD, 3D-modeling, image-editing, illustration, or animation programs for further manipulation and editing. Functionality and price mark this for professional use, but curious amateurs may enjoy exploring the demo.
