Google Earth, SketchUp Connection

Integrated connections with Google Earth and SketchUp allow opening or merging models from Google Earth or SketchUp directly into ARCHICAD, or exporting to these formats. The related add-ons are now fully-integrated in ARCHICAD. The Send Model to Google Earth function provides a one-step viewing experience. Merge the imported location coordinates or retain ARCHICAD’s Project Location data to place the new model relative to these coordinates.
