    Anyone played with Google's Sketchup?
    http://www.sketchup.com/
    Kinda a free AutoCad for the rest of us.
    I was playing with it.  How do you like the new tank?

    Anyway you can import models too and not surpising there are quite a few more reef geeks out there so you can see the Dart and the lumniarchs over there too.

    Alot of easier than AutoCAD was. Not that CAD was too hard.

    Should make it easier to order a tank when you can just hand over the 3D model of it.

    I have every version of it since R10. 3d sucked up till 2000, after that it got really easy to pull 2d designs into a 3d object,.
