<p>Here at Earthware we are always keen to drive more value from the <a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/vscapes" target="_blank">VScapes 3d property modelling</a> presentations, completed for our property development clients. So when we heard about the new web page exporter for Google's 3d modelling application Sketchup, we immediately saw its application to building projects.</p> <p>The exporter is much more basic than the <a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/blog/?p=43" target="_blank">3d model viewer from 3dVia</a> we have previously shown on the blog but it has one advantage, you don't need to install anything extra to see the model its works in any normal web browser!</p> <p>Its really easily to use and as you can see for yourself below its pretty effective.</p> <p><iframe border="0" src="http://www.earthware.co.uk/demos/sketchupexporter/HamptoninArden_index.html" width="410" height="410"></iframe></p> <p>To read more about using the Sketchup web exporter plugin see this <a href="http://sketchuptips.blogspot.com/2008/06/sketchup-web-exporter-beta-windows.html" target="_blank">video tutorial</a>. The exporter is a beta release and we would love to see more functionality in future including 360 rotation and basic zooming, hopefully the best is yet to come!</p> <p>This is just another way for our clients to present their building projects adding to the established Vscapes products including <a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/products/property/vscapes/default.aspx" target="_blank">videos</a>, <a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/products/property/vscapes/default.aspx" target="_blank">Google Earth models</a> and <a href="http://sketchuptips.blogspot.com/2008/06/sketchup-web-exporter-beta-windows.html" target="_blank">3d PDFs</a>.</p>
