SketchUp Viewer for iOS/Android
SketchUp Viewer for Mobile opens models from 3D Warehouse, Trimble Connect or other online storage apps. View and present models with the familiar orbit, pan, and zoom tools. The viewer also supports scenes, fly-through animations, section planes, layer visibility, X-Ray, and edge and face styles.
AR features enable users to merge 3D models with real-world context; allowing them to reimagine room layouts, evaluate proposals in context or review projects as they would a scale model.
SketchUp Viewers for XR (AR/VR)
Subscribers to SketchUp Studio for Students will have access to our full range of viewers for mixed reality devices: Microsoft HoloLens and Windows Mixed Reality devices; and virtual reality devices: Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Other XR platforms are in development.
With SketchUp XR Viewers, users can immerse themselves in a project at 1:1 scale to experience, understand or resolve complex spatial dynamics. Cycling through scenes within a model facilitates rapid design decisions and can show construction sequencing. Teams may collaborate via live audio; virtual avatars represent a colleague’s point of view, allowing them to be more easily guided. Tools such as Tape Measure and Entity Info provide insights when needed. On AR devices, alignment with real-world reference points allows digital models to be placed in-situ.
SketchUp for Web
Subscribers to SketchUp Studio for Students are given access to the premium features of SketchUp’s browser-based modeller. Without support for extensions, SketchUp for Web is not for the true power user—but the core modelling tools are available on any device. With Trimble Connect and SketchUp for Web, a user isn’t required to carry their hardware everywhere they go to showcase conceptual designs to a client.
The premium web modeller includes the following features that are not available in SketchUp Free: Export to DWG/DXF/PDF/TIF/3DS/FBX/OBJ/XSI, Outliner, Solid Tools, and custom styles/materials.
Sefaira for SketchUp provides real-time energy and daylighting analysis within SketchUp, enabling architects to drive design decisions like form, orientation and facade design with real-time feedback
Trimble Connect for Business
Trimble Connect is a cloud storage and collaboration platform accessible via desktop, mobile, web and mixed reality devices. It allows users to share and access project information anywhere, with collaboration tools including 3D markup, task assignment and clash checking. Connect supports Autodesk, Tekla, and SketchUp file formats, plus point clouds, PDF, images, IFC, Microsoft Office files and more for collaboration across disparate teams and functions.
The Trimble Connect app for XR (HoloLens and MagicLeap) allows users to experience models in augmented reality in tabletop mode or at 1:1 scale; models can be aligned with real-world reference points for an immersive experience.
