Google SketchUp

Google SketchUp is what the NaNo poster from yesterday’s blog entry went with to mock up his town. It’s a free 3D modelling program that claims to include spaceship support:

With just a few simple tools, you can create 3D models of houses, sheds, decks, home additions, woodworking projects - even space ships. And once you’ve built your models, you can place them in Google Earth, post them to the 3D Warehouse, or print hard copies.

Here’s the Star Trek section of the 3D Warehouse.
