Viewer for HoloLens

SketchUp Viewer for HoloLens enables you to engage colleagues and clients in experiential design review: a powerful new way to evaluate, coordinate, and communicate in Mixed Reality.

With HoloLens, you can experience projects by walking through them at full one to one scale, in the office or in the field. You and your teammates can virtually inhabit a design, helping to facilitate clear and efficient communication about complex spatial issues.

With SketchUp Viewer for HoloLens, 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.

Tip: With SketchUp Viewer for HoloLens, you can view and interact with SketchUp models using a HoloLens 2 device or Trimble’s XR10 hardhat solution. See Microsoft HoloLens Support for details about the basics for getting up and running with your HoloLens 2 device.

The application includes many of the viewing, navigation, and information tools that you’ll recognize if you’re already familiar with SketchUp. You can easily fly around your project models by choosing from the list of the scenes that you’ve created in SketchUp; toggle tag visibility on or off to control the visibility of objects in the model; select and control the visibility of objects in your models using the Outliner panel; and use the Entity Info tool to quickly access important attribute data about objects in your model.
