What are the benefits to using a simple 3D modeling based software like SketchUp for designers and architects? How does this software compare to others that have become a standard in industries like Architecture?

In this episode, Mike talks about his fascination with the software, SketchUp, which is a 3D modeling software that many architects use to develop concepts for their projects. He talks about the moment he first discovered SketchUp in the early 2000’s and how excited he was to share his models with his friends in architecture school.

Tim shares his experience with the software, which wasn’t his first experience with 3D modeling software, and explains why he didn’t like using it as much as others. Mike and Tim get into a discussion about how there are so many different apps available for designers to use and each one is capable of producing similar results. It’s about finding the right one that feels natural for the designer to use.
