Sketchup for Scouts 2: Download pioneering components for SketchUp
First, if you haven't heard the good news: SketchUp is now free! If you are using it for fun (ie. not making money out of it) you can now download a free version (19 Mb) at sketchup.google.com - just for PC at the moment but Mac is on the way as well.
The second part of this development from Google is something called the 3d Warehouse, where you can upload and download SketchUp models. Quite a few of my models from this site are up there already for you to download (a small raft, a big raft, a trebuchet and an obstacle course), and I plan on adding more. If you upload your own pioneering projects, tag them with 'scouting' so that they show up in this search.
