The Pro version of Hypercosm Teleporter for SketchUp has all of the features of the free version that has been downloaded over 24,000 times since it was released in September 2006. Additional capabilities allow customized display of web-enabled 3D models and support for many of the features in SketchUp Pro, plus more control over technical aspects such as file compression and texture fidelity.

"We have been overwhelmed at the excitement that users of Hypercosm Teleporter for SketchUp have shared with us," said Abe Megahed, Chief Technical Officer of Hypercosm LLC. "We've been able to take much of their feedback and requests for features and build them into the Pro version."

The advantages of Hypercosm Teleporter Pro for SketchUp include:

  • Customized user interface skins
  • Exporting of SketchUp pages and layers
  • Cross-section and tour guide support
  • Sound and voice annotation support for adding audio files to SketchUp pages
  • Markup tools to add markers to a web page to call attention to a particular feature
  • Measuring tool to explore a 3D model and find dimensions or clearances
  • Copy Link Collaboration tool to capture your view, your current rendering mode, and any added markers all in a simple hyperlink

For advanced applications, the Pro version also allows a user to convert 3D scenes into a script code form where objects can be controlled using the Hypercosm "OMAR" 3D scripting language. This is helpful if a user has an idea for an advanced 3D simulation project, and is fully supported by the Hypercosm custom development services group.

Hypercosm Teleporter also has the advantage of a low file size format that makes web-based graphics practical for 3D models and animations. A SketchUp user can now get more value out of their 3D models by creating on on-line portfolio or sharing with customers, colleagues, friends and family through email just like other electronic documents.
