SketchUp is a 3D authoring tool for both Mac and Windows. A few months ago, a plug-in was released that made it easy for Windows versions of the application to export objects to Google Earth. Now the Mac version is out too.
While the plug-in is only useful to SketchUp users, all Google Earth users can display the exported files. Some of the more impressive examples are available for download at the bottom of the plug-in page. (My favorite: the Acropolis [KML])
