SketchUp is 3D modeling software for professionals. SketchUp is easy and intuitive, allowing anyone to model in 3D quickly and accurately. Using 3D models, designers can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to reach a common goal.
To design flawlessly and creatively, SketchUp
offers you some simple, understandable view tools concentrated completely on
the object you draw on. The orbit, pan and zooms tools allow you to navigate
your drawing smoothly observing each part of your model. Working on SketchUp is
an interesting task as it stresses more on your design than on different
applications of features. These tools are designed to keep the process simple
while you are drawing an intricate 3D part. These options come in handy to view
your model from any corner. Let’s know how they work on your favorite 3D
Orbit tool: Orbit tool is used for rotating
your model to view it from different angles. This tool proved to be handy for
the beginners as they can easily check the view of the model. Quite popular
among others, this tool leads you the right design that you are looking for.
You can activate the orbit tool from camera menu, getting started tool bar, or
a large tool set tool bar.
Zoom tool: Zoom, as used traditionally, takes you closer to the
model you are drawing. If you are working on small models, zoom helps you make
it larger to fit your style. The best way to activate the zoom menu is rolling
the scroll wheel that lets you zoom in and out instantly without clicking any
menu bar and toolbar.
Zoom Extent is another option
that is different from the usual working of zoom itself. Zoom Extent is used
for making the model perfectly fit as the size of the window.
To use this tool, choose Zoom
Extent from Camera.
The Pan Tool: The pan tool is another known view tool to observe
your model from different angles – left, right, up and down. This tool brings
to you different sides of your model and allows you to check the corner.
Things you should know about
the pan tool:
• Pan stays in the camera menu
• Pan is in the tool bar
• Pan can also be activated through clicking on mouse’s scroll wheel button and
These three tools are commonly
used by the designers to set different viewpoints of the model. They are simple
yet effective to understand the model the better.

AccuCities is a London tech start-up, focusing on capturing
accurate and detailed 3D city models. Starting in London, we are capturing 3D
Models of this beautiful city in 4 basic levels of detail. As many of our
customers from areas such as architecture and urban planning use SketchUp,
customers can chose to buy the dataset as a sketchup files.
Depending on their needs, customers can buy a subscription to
the entire dataset or chose small sections of the model and purchase those
only. Prices for quarter square kilometer tiles of this High Detail 3D Model
start at £500 per tile and the subscription to the entire 25 km sq dataset
starts from £1,000 per month. The sketchup models of London are easy to use to
inform Architectural design, create CGI renders and animations but could also
be 3D printed.
AccuCities 3D City models are manually captured, using
photogrammetry, from the latest high-res aerial survey data. In High Detail 3D
Models we capture all visible features of the roofs, including chimneys,
parapet walls and dormer windows. The 3D Model is accurate to an incredible 15
centimetres in each axis. For customers who require lighter and more affordable
models can opt for Level 2 models - Level 2 models omit some features but this
makes the models lighter and easier to use. Not to mention they are half the
price of Level 3 models.

[Please link “3D Model of London” to www.accucities.com ] The Terrain in
AccuCites 3D model of London is not flat - it is captured using the same
photogrammetric technique as the buildings.
The terrain model is separated into major land use categories
such as water, road, greenspace or man-made surface. Trees in this dataset are
also captured from the aerial survey with the accurate heights and widths of
their canopy. AccuCities can capture 3D Models like these anywhere in London,
in the UK or in the world. Visit www.accucities.com for more information about
all levels of detail we can provide. On the website you can also directly buy
this 3D model and get a quote for 3D Models that are not yet in our library.
