Whirlpool Goes Transreal


I had a feeling it would be one of the major appliance manufacturers that would take consumer-level products to this stage. They have big, boxy shapes which are great for online use, and they’re the next step down when going from architecture to interiors on the “environmental models” list. So it’s not a surprise to read over on 3pointD (Link) that Whirlpool – by way of a press release (Link to Forbes; Whirlpool news section isn’t available atm) – has announced that they’ve started stocking models to Google’s SketchUp 3D Warehouse.

We’ve now entered the equivalent of Henry Ford’s garage.
