Hypercosm LLC, a leader in 3D interactive simulation software, announces the release of a new free tool for web-enabling 3D models designed with Google SketchUp Pro software from Google, Inc. The Hypercosm Teleporter for SketchUp Pro 5 preserves the SketchUp rendering style and converts model data into a "view only" Hypercosm applet format. This allows a user to view and explore a model, but not to modify or change it - keeping design data private.

Hypercosm LLC announces the release of a new tool for web-enabling 3D models designed with Google SketchUp Pro software from Google, Inc.

The Hypercosm Teleporter for SketchUp Pro 5 is a free program to automatically export 3D models into interactive web pages. It preserves the SketchUp rendering style and converts model data into a "view only" Hypercosm applet format. This allows a user to view and explore a model using the free Hypercosm Player, but not to modify or change it - keeping design data private.

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.

“Hypercosm is a fantastic viewing tool for anyone needing to share SketchUp models, but protect their work in a view-only format,” said Abe Megahed, Chief Technical Officer of Hypercosm.

A Hypercosm Teleporter for SketchUp Pro version will also be released in December 2006. The Pro version will include features such as a choice of user interface templates, export of individual SketchUp pages, cross-sectioning and tour guide support.
