How to Launch a SketchUp File into Prospect
- Open the IrisVR Prospect app on your desktop.
- Drag and drop a SketchUp file into the drop-zone or browse for your file by clicking the "+" icon within your project in the center panel.
- Once the file is finished processing, select it and click "Launch".
- Enjoy your file in VR!
Note: File updating is only available for files imported using version 2.12* or newer.
What is file updating?
File updating allows you to update the existing file in your Prospect library with the latest geometry from your source model while bringing along any issues, annotations, and photos created in Prospect previously.
How it works:
When exporting an updated file, be sure to save the file to the same Project in your Prospect Library. SketchUp files will be updated if a new version of the same file is imported.
If you do not wish for files to be updated, you may turn off the feature in your Settings section toward the top right corner of the Prospect Library under the "File Processing" section.
File Specific Settings
Materials and Textures
Standard image types (JPG and PNG), colors, and textures up to 100MB are supported in Prospect.
Other material libraries, such as V-Ray, Maxwell, or Podium, are not currently supported, nor are double sided faces.
- With files imported with Prospect version 2.11 or newer, users have a higher degree of control over geometry visibility in VR, based on the information contained within your Navisworks model.
- Mix and match Visibility Settings between geometry within the following:
- By default, Prospect will maintain the layer visibility of your last saved scene. Within Prospect all SketchUp layers can be toggled on/off to showcase different design options, materials, layouts, etc.
The sun location in Prospect is taken from the SketchUp file geolocation, if the file does not have geolocation Prospect will default to 0,0,0. Learn more about geolocation from SketchUp's here.
Any billboard or face-me components in SketchUp will also maintain this behavior in VR.
