Augmented Reality with Google Sketchup

Google Sketchup with AR-Media Plug-in

For a practical design use in education the best starting point is with Google Sketchup. The software is free from Google (currently Sketchup version 7 is free) and allows the user to create 3D drawings of objects. However, if your drawing skills are not strong then Sketchup gives access to a warehouse of images, most of which can be downloaded and viewed in the software. The AR application is available through a free plug-in from AR Media.After watching the video clip below, you will find all the links you need and a tutorial to help you get started on the next page.
