A plugin for the popular 3D CAD software Google SketchUp, which was written by Alexander Schreyer (Assistant Program Director and Lecturer in BCT) was recently featured in one of Google’s case-studies on their official blog. As can be seen in the image above, his Ruby Code Editor plugin, which allows a user to write and execute code in SketchUp’s 3D environment has been used extensively by Turner Construction. Some of the case-study examples include Turner’s construction of the WTC Transit Hub in New York City.
