Trimble Launches SketchUp Mobile Viewer for iPad at Basecamp 2014

SketchUp Users Gain the Ability to Access Content and Models in 3D Warehouse Anywhere, Anytime

VAIL, Colo., April 15, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —   Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced the availability of the SketchUp Mobile Viewer for iPad, a new app providing design and construction professionals with convenient, on-the-go access to SketchUp models.

Available in the iTunes App Store, the app allows iPad users to store and access their own 3D models, as well as explore and download models from the entire universe of SketchUp files available in the 3D Warehouse. Users also can orbit, pan and zoom around 3D models using multi-touch gestures, and present their own private 3D models to clients and partners.

The app was launched during the SketchUp 2014 3D Basecamp 2014 conference in Vail, Colo., where over 300 power users and enthusiasts from across the globe are gathered to collaborate and learn through various training sessions, presentations and workshops.

The announcement follows Trimble's recent release of SketchUp 2014, which featured major enhancements to 3D Warehouse, as well as new tools for classifying model components and tighter interoperability with other products in Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. The SketchUp Mobile Viewer is the first-ever SketchUp tablet product; Trimble plans to add support for Android tablets in an upcoming release.

The SketchUp Mobile Viewer is available now for $9.99 exclusively through the Apple App Store. The app is compatible with iPad 3 or iPad Mini 2 and newer Apple tablets, and with iOS 6 and newer Apple operating systems.
