Augmented Reality plugin for Google Sketchup

Found this trial plugin today. it lets me view my old sketchup models in AR !!!
the plugin is called AR-media™ Plugin v1.1 for Google SketchUp™ you can get it here or at http://www.inglobetechnologies.com/en/products/arplugin_su/info.php
heres some of the stuff i did a while back.. now in AR!!! :cheers:

medievel castle

dune buggy

boat

(original post)

and some other stuff.. to check how it handles complex or multiple objects


and heres some architectural design plans for a restaurant called Cirrus by my friend KT Thomas at Flip Design Pvt. Ltd.


currently the plugin has a tough time rendering textures.. so i suggest u use only colour fills for now.. also it does have problems with normal maps sometimes.

detailed installation instructions are below in the comments thread >

yes you need to-1) install the plugin2) have a webcam plugged in and working(try it with skype or msn to check)3) load your model in sketchup and click the plugin button4) it takes a few seconds to convert the file and load up the AR app5) print out this file - c:/program files/ARplugin 1.1 (Trial Version)/docs/Marker.pdf6) the print out should look like this(if you don't have a printer close by, load the image on your mobilephone and point it at the web cam)
