Google is thinking to launch some application to make interactive SU models and show them off in iPad or Android. But the idea is totally on primary stage.
Some months ago Limitless Computing Inc.®, a provider of 3D mobile Augmented Reality, released SightSpace 3D for Android customers. It is the only mobile Augmented Reality aplication for Google SketchUp™. It is accessible for the Android Market @r $14.99.
SightSpace 3D facilitates observation of Google SketchUp designs on Android devices with Augmented Reality capabilities which superimpose digital models over prevailing physical environments. Stereoscopic 3D is accessible at the time of using Augmented Reality wearing 3D glasses.
But still there are some third party application which can help users to upload 3D models to their mobile devices.
Babel3D contains a supporting application for 3D visualization on mobile devices known as Glovius, accessible on both iOS and Android based devices (including tablets). The users will be able to open large 3D model files and assemblies with sizes well away from the limitations imposed by current mobile devices. One can get the applications for free on the Apple App Store and in the Android Market.
The application is compatible with SketchUp, 3DS, OBJ, STEP, IGES, JT, and other professional CAD formats like SolidWorks, Catia, Pro/E, Inventor, and NX.
The application supports display of annotations (right now, only for JT), and section planes alongside the standard three ortho-normal directions. The users get the ability to interact with the model applying the touch interface - pinch to zoom, single finger drag to rotate, two finger drag to pan, and double tap on the screen to reset the model. The user will also be able to save and email snapshots from within the app.
The potential user may connect to Babel3D from within these mobile apps and download the files converted to the mobile optimized file format directly on the device, and these can then be visualized on the app.
Walkabout3d Mobile: It is a newly launched user-friendly application for the iPhone facilitating SketchUp users to create and view the scenes of their designs directly on an iPhone and allocate the view of their design ideas to their clients.
The users can freely download WalkAbout3d Mobile in the iPhone App Store and is well-matched with the Trial version of Walk About3d.
The users can just click on the Generate Panorama button to produce the panoramic views while walk through a SketchUp design and categorize and illustrate each one to be demonstrated within the iPhone app.
The users will be capable of discovering the accurate location of each panoramic view on a map view within the app by geo-referencing a SketchUp model within SketchUp. All location details will be placed into Walkabout3d mechanically.
Allocation of scenes is performed by uploading the panorama project to webspace as per your requirement, and a user account system is available on the WalkAbout3d website providing users an simple way to get and distribute their WalkAbout3d Mobile projects from.
