Autodesk has smartly jumped on the “labs” bandwagon and created Autodesk Labs. They’ve posted a Google Earth extension to AutoCAD 2007 which allows you to publish 3D models right into Google Earth. I believe our company is upgrading from AutoCAD 2006 to 2007 soon so I’ll have to give it a shot when it arrives.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, ESRI hiding their code in ArcScripts is a complete waste of time. Heck by definition, it isn’t even in the correct place as ArcScripts is for work contributed by ESRI’s user community. I guess the user community includes those who actually work at ESRI.
