Welcome to the world of 3D!

To end my spring break blogging flurry, 2 links from Free Tech for Teachers, both dealing with digital models.

The first post talks about 3DTin, an in-browser tool for creating 3D images of things.  Now you know I love me some Google SketchUp,  but an in-browser tool would be a LOT better for school work than a dedicated program.  It looks really fun, and fairly user-friendly (for 3D drafting software).

The second post talks about Autodesk Homestyler, which lets you design a house, drop in rooms and furniture and maybe even textures, and then pop it up into 3D.  I wish I'd known about this 2 months ago, when I was prepping the house design unit.  Now that I know about it, I'll be looking for excuses to use it.
