19-avatar-191209 What James Cameron did for the movies with Avatar D-Tools is going to do for system integration.  As much as I love a rack elevation or floorplan done up in Microsoft Visio it just does not hold a candle to what can be accomplished using Google SketchUp in the same amount of time.

Before I tip my hand too much I would encourage every system integration design professional out there to download a free copy of Google SketchUp and get familiar with the interface.  To help you along the learning curve check out this great Google SketchUp Tutorial, Edges To Rubies by Martin Rinehart.  And don’t forget to download the D-Tools/Google SketchUp 3D Component Library Demo

Get ready to be blown away in 2010.  Stay tuned for more information.
