As Google expands the use of its 3D Warehouse Web site for its SketchUp design tool, Whirlpool Corporation helps make the design process even easier for architects and designers by offering 3-D models of its Whirlpool and Gladiator brand products on the site. Google offers a free and a professional version of the Google SketchUp 3-D design and visualization tool to the architectural community.

Developed for conceptual stages of design, Google SketchUp is a powerful yet easy-to-learn software used for quick and easy 3-D form creation. The Google 3D Warehouse is a repository of 3-D building objects that expedites the design process. These initial Whirlpool models offer designers and their clients the ability to visualize their designs in 3-D. The SketchUp models can then be converted into all major CAD products without having to draw designs twice.

More than 120 top U.S. design firms currently use Google SketchUp for 3-D design and visualization. As the Google 3D Warehouse expands the number of 3-D objects available for designers, Whirlpool Corporation plans to expand its 3-D appliance model offerings to include Jenn-Air, KitchenAid, Maytag, and Amana brands.

SketchUp is compatible with CAD products such as Graphisoft Archicad 10, MicroStation V8, Autodesk AutoCAD Revit Series Systems Plus, VectorWorks Architect, DataCAD, Nemetschek, Rhinoceros and Softech.
