If you haven't come across this before, try it! It makes 3D models of stuff.

Great fun, easy to learn and use, I got the hang of the basics in half a day and now use it for work. Makes for a very cheap hobby too.

If a donkey like me can use it anyone can.

Here's an example.

Yeah, it's pretty good for a free package.

The thing is, it's easy.

I've tried stuff like this before to hopeless effect, but this . . . great!

It is. There's the odd thing that I find, I don't know, counter-intuitive maybe. It probably works better with a tablet than a mouse and I don't use a tablet.

Never used a tablet before. The other thing is you can paste in Google Earth images and overlay your site. Add to that, try the 'Components' thing. That's where I get my tipper lorries and diggers and stuff. Millions of items already drawn and uploaded by others.Should be more 'materials' soon too with the bonus packs.

Knocked a water treatment plant together in about an hour yesterday. All to scale with pumps and flanges and pipes etc. Then paste it into the main model as a component and move it around until it's in the right place.

When finished I can optimise the site design, then animate it to show regulators and clients etc.
