Great article!

My company is extremely interested in this whole area of SketchUp as a BIM platform. The numbers of people becoming interested in SketchUp will become a challenge to the big software providers.

My prediction:

– The bigger companies will alter their platforms to feed into SketchUp or some similar open platform.
– Autodesk, Graphisoft et al will realise that they need a completely new revenue model and end up selling advertising to BIM content providers along with free/ low cost BIM platforms
