Create your own content with SketchUp

The guys at SketchUp have just posted an article on their blog about the new .skp import and Google 3D Warehouse support in Antics.

As many Antics users will be trying SketchUp for the first time I thought we should return the favour 🙂 If you’re looking to make the most of SketchUp then be sure to check out the Tips and Tricks category of their blog as well as their forum (where you will find some threads discussing Antics already). SketchUp offer a free and pro version, like we do with Antics, so it’s well worth adding to your software armoury.

If you’re completely new to this, SketchUp is a very cool piece of software that lets you create and modify your own 3D models. As the name suggests, it’s as easy as sketching out the model you want, then manipulating it to make it 3D. You can have simple props ready in minutes, and then share them on the Google 3D Warehouse, and of course import them into Antics for use in your scenes.

Here’s a quick introductory video on how easy SketchUp is to use:

    So you can create content which can be brought into Antics with the FREE version of Sketchup? Am I understanding that right?

    Hi, that’s right Overman. Create your content in the free version of SketchUp, save it as a .skp file, then import it into Antics. Or you can just download free content from the Google Content Warehouse and drop that straight into your Antics scene.

    We’re really excited about the new SketchUp support. It’s such an easy to use program with a great UI which makes it a fantastic companion to Antics users. The fact you can download it for free makes it a no-brainer!
