When designing an exhibition I like to begin with a few minutes planning out the design with a pen & paper. Once I am happy the exhibition is fitting together well and making sense, I usually begin 3D modelling in SketchUp.
I use SketchUp most days and can produce detailed 3D designs very quickly. I have developed creative texturing techniques using SketchUp alongside 3ds Max & Photoshop. This speeds up the design process of producing impressive exhibition visuals.

Using SketchUp throughout the exhibition design development stages can result in a detailed 3d model of the entire exhibition including interactive exhibits, museum showcase layouts and graphic designs:
