ArtVPS, the CAD software provider that developed the Shaderlight interactive rendering plugin for Trimble SketchUp, has released a collaborative cloud-based project management platform. Sketchpack lets architects, designers, contractors, and clients communicate, upload, and share interactive 3D architectural models via the cloud. The company partnered with Web-based modeling platform Sketchfab, which lets users share 3D models without an additional plug-in or host application on the system. Sketchpack supports 27 native 3D formats as well as features such as textures, normal maps, specular, diffuse, and transparency lights. Sketchpack can also be linked with social media accounts on platforms such as Google Drive, LinkedIn, and Facebook. artvps.com
