Making a Sketchup Exhibition?

Checkout this page about making good exhibition labels.


SketchUp is a 3D modeling program designed for architectural, civil, and mechanical engineers as well as filmmakers, game developers, and related professions. It also includes features to facilitate the placement of models in Google Earth. It is designed to be easier to use than other 3D CAD programs. A feature of SketchUp is the 3D Warehouse that lets SketchUp users search for models made by others and contribute models.
