SketchUp (now a Google company)

I played with Google’s new property, SketchUp, tonight. After watching a couple of the videos, it’s easy to use. I hope they release a free version.  [More on SketchUp over at Make.]

Anyway, I grabbed an image of the Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver (the Eccleston version) from Henriks, imported it as a texture and then reshaped a rectangle to fit its outline. Then I used the follow tool to wrap that outline around a circle, made a few adjustments and put some color on it. I’m pretty happy with it! The SketchUp file is here. Now where did I put that 3D printer…..
