Google SKetchup http://www.sketchup.com/ SketchUp is a free utility that allows you to create 3D models for Google Earth. The program is basically a CAD tool, and although it offers Google Earth support, it can be used to create other types of drawings and 3D models as well. Perhaps one of the most useful features is that you can download 3D buildings and other objects from an online library. Once you do, you can use the model in its existing form or you can use the drawing tools to modify it.
