SketchUp 2014 is here and SightSpace 3D mobile supports it! SightSpace for Apple and Android loads SketchUp files (versions 8, 2013, and 2014) 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. Continue reading →

We are previewing new features for our SightSpace 3D mobile application for Google SketchUp at the American Institute of Architects convention in Washington, DC this week (May 17-19) in Booth #1908. The dog house included in this post is a clue to one of our features because it is very special. If you are not familiar with SightSpace, it views Google SketchUp files on Apple and Android devices in Augmented Reality by superimposing the digital designs in the real-world in real-time, enabling you to walk through the model by simply moving your device. Additional features include stereoscopic red/cyan 3D, annotate 3D models, bookmark favorite views, take screenshots, share notes and photos, and more. Continue reading →
Our SightSpace 3D mobile app viewer for Google SketchUp (in .KMZ format) is now available on Amazon’s Kindle Fire and can be downloaded on the Amazon Appstore for Android. SightSpace 3D is a powerful tool to view models created in Google SketchUp and other programs that read .KMZ files. These include Google Earth, the Google 3D Warehouse, ArchiCAD, and ArcGIS. With SightSpace, you can annotate 3D models, bookmark favorite views, take screenshots, and share notes and photos. If you have a pair of red/cyan glasses, you can also view models in full Stereoscopic 3D. SightSpace 3D is also available for download on the iTunes App Store for Apple devices and for Android phones and tablets on Google Play (formerly the Android Market).
