When I create models in Sketchup Pro, I’ve used callouts and 3D text to specify items in the model. When exporting to Sketchup Mobile Viewer for use in the field, only the 3D text appears and the callouts do not.
In addition, the navigation is extremely difficult in Sketchup Mobile Viewer. Am I doing something wrong? How am I supposed to zoom in? Pinching doesn’t work.
You are exactly correct. In fact that and the high price of Sketchup compares to other CAD apps, and the inability to send active drawings to contractors and government approval boards who have SketchUp Viewer has convinced me to switch to some other drawing app. Sad:(
NO, I was correct 4 years ago when I made the comments you reference, but 4 months later, as I also said above, dimension and callout display was added to the SketchUp Mobile Viewer in ver 3.
(The Desktop Viewer always had dimension and text callout display.)
Again, the discrepancy / complaint for this topic was alleviated (solved) 4 years ago.
Huh? SketchUp model files are sent to these entities all the time. The Desktop Viewer and Mobile Viewer are for just that … simple viewing.
This is also offtopic for this thread, but I suggest you read up on the features of the 3rd way to have “consumers” interact with SketchUp model files and associated documents.
Your response indicates professional workflow, which is what Trimble Connect is all about. It allows a more “active” means of viewing and giving feedback about project documents. https://connect.trimble.com/capabilities
… is debatable, and offtopic for this category. There are several other active topic threads to discuss “pros and cons” of the recent price and licensing changes in the proper forum category for the SketchUp application.
