PlaceMaker is a plugin for SketchUp that allows you to import High resolution Aerials, 3D buildings, Parametric 3D roads and walks and even bodies of water and trees. It will save you hours, if not days, of work and create instant cities from across the world.
Quick to learn and simple to use, locate your site through the PlaceMaker interface and start importing. Currently you can import in buildings, roads, paths, trees, water bodies and high resolution aerials. Everything to get your project started with rich context and detail.
PlaceMaker now comes with ALL the 3D Buildings in the United States.
Microsoft has generously made public all the 2D building footprints for the USA. PlaceMaker now imports those footprints and converts them to 3D buildings. From the smallest, most rural town, to the largest city, our US customers can expect to have complete 3D buildings, roads and high-resolution aerials for their projects in the United States.
And more 3D buildings for other countries are on the way as part of our promise at PlaceMaker to obtain and provide more.
