Using Google Sketchup for geometry
I've recently discoverd Google Sketchup, with a large amount of tutorials available and its easy to use interface. I'm thinking that this tool can be very useful for building geometry. Is there a way to make Google Sketchup really useful for CFD application ? It must be a way around for exporting the 3d model to a valid format file acceptable by Ansys or any other meshing application

I don't think that there is any CFD solver that supports google sketch up extensions.....and I don't think that GSketch up is capable of exporting models into any acceptable extensions as parasolid or IGS.
