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.
We plan on growing PlaceMaker to have additional data sets. For example, we are teaming up with a company called Ecopia to provide over 220 million building models for the United States and Canada. This is first of its kind 3D models for SketchUp soon to be available as an in-app purchase.
