Using SketchUp with Help of VR

SketchUp is a computer program based on 3D model. This software is used to draw different type of application such as architectural, interior design landscape architecture, civil and mechanical engineering.

Now users can review their SketchUp models with VR. Here VR stands for virtual reality. SketchUp pro members can now see their SketchUp models from the inside by using the HTC Vive Oculus Rift headsets of virtual reality. By using this virtual reality SketchUp designers now save the time.

Using of virtual reality

Now users are able to review their SketchUp models with VR more effectively. Users need a right VR headset, a computer which are able to render VR experience and 3D to VR software. The virtual reality software, prospect is very intuitional to walk through SketchUp models.

Preparing SketchUp models for VR

Users have to do few things before entering the 3D based models using virtual reality software. At first users have to sure that their SketchUp models have proper geolocation settings. If the SketchUp models have proper geolocation setting then it properly counts glare and shadows cast from the natural light. This setting will also help by adjusting sun setting in virtual reality.

If users want to see different scene in the model or jump between different rooms or location then they have changed the settings in advance mode. The setting is changed automatically into viewpoints.

Viewing SketchUp models in Virtual Reality mode

After completing the upper mentioned steps now users have to plug in the VR headset and either they have to drag and drop a SketchUp file into the zone or find and upload their file by clicking the option browse. after that now users have to select the files and click the option view in VR put on the headset.
