View your sketchup models in iPad or iPhone/ iTouch with Visco3D
Cadalog, Inc, the leading developer of SketchUp plug-ins, recently introduced Viso3D. It consists of two individual programs. One is a SketchUp plug-in which can export a SketchUp model containing faces, textures, scenes, sunlight and shadows to a IOS supported file format known as .xcs. The exported file consists of the SketchUp geometry, colors, textures, scenes and shadows. The users can convey the converted .xcs file by e-mail or download the files with the help of Dropbox for iPad. On the other hand, the users can apply iTunes to transmit the .xcs files from your computer.
This sketchup plugin also contains a lightmap option having the ability to bake SketchUp shadows into textures involving SketchUp sun, shadows and indirect lighting.
The iPad app supports walk-through motions, orbiting, panning, lines for edges, moving forward and backward (walk thru) and SketchUp scene camera positions.
The Viso3D SketchUp exporter plug-in is priced at $49.00 (USD) having an introduction price of $19.95. Presently it is only compatible with SketchUp 8, 2013. The windows version is in full release. Mac version is in public beta.
A free 30 day trial of the Viso3D SketchUp exporter plug-in is available at www.viso3d.com
