SketchUp News Viewer
Keep an eye on SketchUp news and tutorials from blogs, forums, tweets and Facebook posts right inside SketchUp.
SketchUp News Viewer

This small plugin adds a news browser to the SketchUp Help menu. Now you can follow news and tutorial blog posts but also Twitter and Facebook postings as well as forum discussions all in one place – without even leaving SketchUp! Clicking a link will get you to the original article (on the source website).

News items and tutorials on the left side of the screen come from a variety of sources, including the official Trimble blogs, SketchUcation and a variety of other tutorial sites (including mine). The right side aggregates Trimble’s Facebook posts with Tweets that include @sketchup and discussions from the SketchUcation forums.

I included in this collection whatever source reliably publishes good information and has an accessible RSS feed. If you know of a good blog etc. that should be included here, please suggest it in the comments.

Usage:

Go to Help > SketchUp News to read the latest news.

You can also find this plugin on GitHub.
