Embed interactive 3D objects in websites

Sketchup is an easy to use 3D modelling tool now owned by Google. I first tried it out a couple of years back and then, not having any reason to use it, put it away in a dark virtual cupboard.

I needed to create a model today though so I reached deep into the back of the cupboard and was able to whip this up in a couple of hours (in between meetings and reacquainting myself with elements of how it works).

There is also a nifty third party plugin with the imaginative name of Sketchup Web Exporter that enables you to display your models in a web browser – you can actually click and drag on this object to rotate it.

  1. I just can’t imagine what it looked now. I totally have to regret the time I wasn’t able to use them for all my activities intended for it. Well I just hope I’m not too late.
