    Viso3D is comprised of two separate programs.

    One is a SketchUp plug-in which will export the SketchUp model along with textures, scenes, sun light and shadows to an iOs supported file format called .xcs. This SketchUp plug-in has a lightmap option which will bake sun light and shadows to SketchUp textures and add indirect lighting to the model. The SketchUp plug-in is currently only on SketchUp 8 and Windows. Mac version to be released next month.

    The other program is a free iPad app that will allow you to navigate in 3D the .xcs file. The app can be downloaded from the iTunes app store. It includes 3D navigation such as orbiting, rotating, panning and walk through motions.

    Free 30 day trial of the Viso3D SketchUp exporter plug-in is available.
