PlaceMaker is a plugin for SketchUp that allows you to import High resolution Aerials, 3D buildings, Parametric 3D roads and walks and even bodies of water and trees. It includes the ability to texture buildings using Google Street View. It will save you hours, if not days, of work and create instant cities from across the world.
Import High resolution aerial directly into SketchUp to use as your base.
Insert 3D building massing models for select locations and cities.
Roads and Paths
Place 3D roads, walks, paths and water into your model. All objects are modeled and render ready.
Model on Terrain
PlaceMaker will model and drape buildings, 3D roads and paths directly onto terrain.
Export to Revit
Use the Export to Revit function and import your model into Revit.
Instant Site Base
Create instant site base files to use for modeling, design and rendering.
Currently, PlaceMaker requires SketchUp Make 2016 or greater or SketchUp Pro 2016 or greater. It works on both PC and Mac operating systems. An internet connection is required. If you can run SketchUp, you should have no problem running PlaceMaker. However, the import process will be faster with a fast internet connection and more powerful CPU. It is also recommended (but not required) to have at least 8 GB of RAM.
