A few wonderful things to announce with the release of V4:
For starters, the SketchUp Viewer app for iOS & Android is now FREE!(mium). Meaning, we’ve made the standard model viewing features freely available and introduced a new, premium in-app feature set for augmented reality (AR) viewing that enables you to experience your 3D models by merging them with the world around you. AR viewing works for iOS devices that support ARKit, and Android devices that support ARCore. AR viewing features are available via in-app purchase for $9.99/yr and you’re able to test the features by playing with the sample models that ship with the app. For those of you who purchased the app previously, when you upgrade to V4, you’ll automatically be granted a free, 1yr trial of the AR feature set!
Additions to the free feature set include support for Apple’s Files app & Android’s Storage Access Framework, making it much easier to open models from Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud and other popular file storage apps. And last but not least, the new Select tool and Entity Info panel put information about edge lengths, the area of faces, volume of solids, and component and group definitions at your fingertips.
We hope you’ll love V4 as much as we do and look forward to hearing feedback about the things you love and the things you hope we’ll continue to improve upon!
