    Default Sketch-Up/Google Earth

    Anyone ever check out the 3D Buildings feature inside google earth? Its a pretty cool feature that shows 3D models people have built that are placed on the map. Much of Baltimore and DC have been modeled.

    Now lets take it a step further... Has anyone ever built a 3D model for google earth?

    I built the old druid hill entrance/arch for a work project and entered it into google earth just to try it out. Thought it was pretty cool so I went ahead and built another one of my favorite abandonments fort carrol and dropped it in there.

    Its easy to learn so if your bored check out sketch-up and google earth. Both are free. Ive attached screenshots of my models and another someone has built of a popular spot plus downtown.

    The stuff I built was WAY too detailed. Google would never accept that. Models need to be fairly basic but made to look complex with photo overlays.
