Figured I would post this don't know if anyone else has....

this is a free service via Google you can build your own 3D models, it is called skecth up. here is an example (no I did not do it, it was in their model area)... figured those who like to build fields and stadiums might be interested...

I started using this program around a year ago and I must say that this program is pretty nice after using it for awhile. However, the program slows down if you make a very detailed model. I made a miller park model and I thought it turned out alright. My File is already nearly 90MB. A few pics from the model I made:

Tried it once...never really got the hang of it...perhaps someone can point me to some nice stadium-building tutorials?

I prefer to draw my custom stadiums. It comes more natual to me.

Wow first post in a very long time, but what a great site this is.. Thanks CC.

Anyways Google Sketch is really cool for schools or teams which are building new stadiums and want to show them to the fans before they build them.... For instance the U of Akron is building a $55.7 million dollar stadium, using this once the renderings are finalized, their fans can have a good idea of what it will look like!

Best new design tool in my opinion...I work at an architecture firm where we do loads of visualisations for clients - NedsNine - change the settings to run at a lower visual quality whilst building, i find that makes it run faster (as obviously not havign shadows on does too)...the best aspect is that you can import drawings straight from autocad - so the detail is done on a programme that supports lots of lines, and is easier to get acurate dimensions and geometry and then you simply render in sketchup...genius

i'd like to do a version of the pepsi center in colorado - any idea where i can find dmiensions or a pattern?
