Check your model's compatibility with Viso3D iPad app

The Viso3D Evaluation period is 30 days from installation. Before purchasing the Viso3D exporter plug-in, please make sure the SketchUp models you want your clients to view, will export and load on the Viso3D iPad viewer. The Viso3D iPad viewer is available for free on the iTunes app store. Search for viso3D. If the SketchUp model is large such as over 500,000 faces and/ or has large amount of textures, you may not be able to load and view it on an iPad due to system memory limitations.
