Trimble has released a plugin for SketchUp Pro that is very compelling.  They have a plugin that directly brings in Trimble 3D scan data into SketchUp to make models.  This was just released yesterday, so I’m still studying it.  Here is where you can pick up the plugin: http://infogeospatial.trimble.com/trimble-scan-explorer-sketchup-extension.html  It seems to take the scan information to set up construction points and lines in SketchUp that can be used to draw the model.  It seems to make for an accurate measured model in a short amount of time.

A video on what it can do and how to use it is below.
