SketchUp Viewer for Hololens makes it possible to engage colleagues and clients in experiential design review: a powerful new way to evaluate, coordinate, and communicate in mixed reality. The application’s collaboration functionality supports co-located or distributed multi-user see-what-we-see viewing sessions. With HoloLens, you and your teammates can virtually inhabit a design, helping to facilitate clear and efficient communication about complex spatial issues. With SketchUp Viewer, you also have the ability to interact with your designs as holographic scale models, supplementing or alleviating the need to build physical models of your projects. The application includes many of the viewing, navigation and information tools that you’re used to using in SketchUp. You can easily fly around your project models by choosing from the list of the scenes that you’ve created in SketchUp; toggle layer visibility on-and-off to control model visibility; and use the Tape Measure tool and Entity Info tool to quickly access important information about your model. 3D works better when we share it together, so get going. It’s time to experience your designs in mixed reality.
