SightSpace Augmented Reality Updated for iPhone 6 & iOS 8

The new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iOS 8 are here and we have updated
our SightSpace line of mobile tools to support them! SightSpace 3D for Apple loads SketchUp files (versions 8 and later) in the native .SKP format (as well as .KMZ and .KML).. There is no need to use a plugin, export the file, or place it on a website in order to view your model on-the-go. Place your SketchUp model right onto your device using iTunes or USB, Dropbox, email, or the new 3D Warehouse (yes, we updated to support the new Warehouse!) If you are not familiar with this powerful mobile tool, SightSpace enables you to not only take your model mobile, but also to use Augmented Reality to overlay it onto the live camera feed of a device. View your model in the real world, in real-time.

SketchUp Basecamp 2014 Recap!

SketchUp 3DBasecamp was held April 14-16th in Vail, CO. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, it was a gathering of about 300 SketchUp enthusiasts who attended sessions, went to workshops, networked, and hung out. There were great sessions (like “The SketchUp Workflow for Architecture”) and we presented our workshop on SketchUp and Augmented Reality (and the slides are available for download). Basecamp was also very exciting for us because we officially launched our SightSpace View¬†Augmented Reality plugin and companion mobile app (Apple and Android) for SketchUp. ¬†SightSpace View is a powerful tool to share your designs, in context, with clients and colleagues.
