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.
Welcome to Part 2 of my SketchUp Basecamp round-up. In Part 1, I summarized Basecamp as a whole and the announcements. Now I am going to personalize it to us, our friends at Shaderlight, and some of the great people we got to meet. SketchUcation unofficially kicked of Basecamp on Sunday night by having a mixer and we met many attendees.
Shaderlight, presented their interactive rendering plugin during a ‘Rendering Round-up” on Day 1 and in an unconference on Day 2. They were very well received and many SketchUp users got to see our Shaderlight Cloud Rendering in action. They were excited to be able to send complex animations to the cloud and to submit unlimited, simultaneous renders. To make sure Shaderlight users are never without their renders, we introduced the Shaderlight Cloud Viewer for Android devices. Don’t worry Apple users, your app is coming soon.
