Trimble acquires SketchUp from Google
On April 26, 2012, Trimble announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire SketchUp® from Google. SketchUp is one of the most popular 3D modeling tools in the world. As part of the SketchUp platform, Trimble will also partner with Google on running and developing SketchUp's 3D Warehouse, an online repository where users can find, share, store and collaborate on 3D models.
Interesting just wonder how this will work out, they will spent a lot to make SketchUp BIM worthy. But after buying Tekla they seem to be serious. This can only be good for us users.
