CAD to Google Earth via Alibre

Here’s an interesting bit of information I discovered on the 3D CAD NEWS blog (Link): Alibre’s very recently announced support for Google Earth (not even sure where I read about it but think I stumbled across it on DigitalMediaWorld – Link – where I didn’t bother reading past the first sentence) also happens to provide a path for other CAD applications.

I was one of the original sign-ups for Alibre back when it was first launching, but I’d not had much need for it (since I run Pro/E and Maya). Now I’m interested in giving this a try because as most of you know (based on a number of posts, including this one regarding Whirlpool – reLink), file portability is a big deal to me.
