We are pleased to launch our expanded line of SightSpace Augmented Reality apps for Trimble SketchUp at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) convention in Denver, CO in Booth #4210! If you are attending, visit us from June 20-22!
If you are not familiar with SightSpace or Augmented Reality, our suite of mobile products for Trimble SketchUp pre-visualizes buildings, materials, fixtures, and more, using a mobile device to enable professionals to effectively communicate scale and context.
In Booth #4210, see designs come alive in real environments with SightSpace® 3D, Pro, and View.
Great news! Our popular SightSpace 3D mobile viewer with Augmented Reality is now available for download for Android devices in four languages: English, Chinese (simplified), French, and Spanish! If you are not familiar with SightSpace, it is a viewer for SketchUp files (in .KMZ format) on Android (and Apple) devices. It is a powerful tool to visualize a SketchUp model in the real world, in place, by using Augmented Reality technology. Move the device and the view changes in real-time. Additional features include stereoscopic red/cyan 3D, annotate 3D models, bookmark favorite views, take screenshots, share notes and photos, and more.
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.
Martin from Shaderlight presents at the 'Rendering Round-up'
SketchUp Basecamp starts in Boulder, CO on Monday, October 15th. What is it? It is a get-together for 250 people who are enthusiastic users and are planning on spending 3 days on all things SketchUp. SketchUp team members and attendees will present sessions – and this includes us! On Tuesday at 2pm, we will be presenting on Augmented Reality in SketchUp and showcasing our mobile application, SightSpace 3D for Apple and Android. Our partner, ArtVPS, will be demonstrating the interactive Shaderlight rendering plug-in, including the capability to render on the cloud on both Monday and Tuesday. Additionally, we will both be available at vendor tables on Tuesday and Wednesday to demonstrate mobile, Augmented Reality, and rendering on the cloud.
I will post a summary of Basecamp in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, if you have any questions, email us at info@LimitlessComputing.com, check out our media advisory for Basecamp, or contact our press rep Marilyn Kroner.
During the AIA 2012 expo in Washington, DC, that took place in mid-May, we were demonstrating our new Shaderlight Cloud Rendering plug-in for SketchUp and new features for SightSpace 3D, our mobile viewer with Augmented Reality for SketchUp. In our booth we joined up with the good people of Shaderlight to show off Shaderlight Cloud Rendering (launching June 2012) which is the first, and only, SketchUp rendering plug-in to use the power of fast computers on the cloud to deliver high quality photorealistic renderings fast without tying up your desktop.
Why is this image so special? Other than the adorable puppy?
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 →
