I've recently downloaded the newest version of google's sketch up software and I'm amazed at how intuitive the software is and how well done the tutorials and videos are done. I think this is absolutely fantastic that google would make a CAD/3D program that anyone can use. I've worked as an instructor and a teacher and am duely impressed with the interface and ease of use. I loath text based programs, I've used AutoCAD in the past and have briefly tried to use other textbased programs. In my oppinion they greatly increase the time needed to get past the learning curve and to actually be able to produce anything of value. I'm wondering if there are others here that use this program and if anyone has bought the full version? I'm seriously considering purchasing it and would like to hear from someone with more experience than I have. On the surface it seems like a very powerful program, for being so easy to use and for being so cheap. The fact that you can export to other file types only increases the attraction. What are your thoughts? Have you used this, have you purchased the full version? How would you stack this up against other CAD and 3D programs?
