Trimble has just released an open beta of a new browser-based, cloud-hosted version of its popular 3D modeler SketchUp. For now, my.sketchup.com is a thin subset of the desktop version. The cloud-based version was introduced at an event for users earlier this year but was invite-only until yesterday. MySketchUp requires an active account with either Trimble Connect or the Google Drive system. Google was the previous owner of SketchUp, and continues to host 3D Warehouse, an open library of models created in SketchUp. Signing up for MySketchUp will create a 10GB storage space on Trimble Connect at no charge. More on My.SketchUp on Graphic Speak
