Great for mocking up floor layouts

Positive Comment by GringoFrenzy
about Sketchup Aug 2015

I used this to make a 3D model of a house I was looking to buy. I traced over the 2D floorplans provided by the vendor and then simply 'lifted' the walls out of it, then placed furniture everywhere. Really handy for figuring out where to put things. There's a good online marketplace for furniture models etc and a lot of it is free, or you can pay for professional packs of props if you wanted to use this professionally.

It's the easiest program to create different shapes, also balls, once you understand how to do it.
I typed on YT: game, Sketchup, and found out, that Uncharted was made by using Sketchup.

Easiest 3D modeling tool

Positive Comment by BjornR
about Sketchup Mar 2012

Google Sketchup is (in my opinion) the easiest 3D modeling tool. It has a clear workspace and Google itself provides good tutorials for it on Youtube.
It's a shame there's no Linux version of it though.
