Trying IMSI/Design’s Free TurboViewer

Friday, June 24th, 2011

IMSI/Design recently announced the debut of TurboViewer, a free app that allows fast viewing of native 3D DWG files on iPad and iPhone.


Shown is the Documents screen which displays documents you might store on TurboViewer.

When you open a file in TurboViewer, it will autosense whether you have
opened a 2D file or a 3D file. If you’re in a 3D file it will change the
gesture slightly to optimize its usage.

The main point of TurboViewer, said CEO Royal Farros, is its performance, and
noted that on the 3G iPhone I had it was going to be a bit slower than
on a 4G, or on an iPad, but I didn’t notice that it was slow at all. For
orbiting, zooming in and panning a drawing you can use standard iPhone
commands such as pinch to zoom in and out, do a single finger navigation
to orbit around a drawing. If you have files that are on the web,
select those from your web browser and download those. You can also email yourself files that can be viewed in TurboViewer.

Autodesk Sketchbook mobile app ought to turn some heads

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Something that should appeal to a lot of folks at a price tag of $2.99  — Autodesk SketchBook Mobile painting and drawing application which extends your digital sketchpad to your Apple iPhone or Apple iPod Touch. Sporting the same paint engine as Autodesk SketchBook Pro software, SketchBook Mobile offers professional-grade painting and drawing tools in a streamlined and intuitive user interface.

Although I can’t see architects designing large canvases with this tool, it is great for capturing those fleeting ideas that can end up on a cocktail napkin or the back of an envelope. This way you’ll be able to have a digital representation to take to your computer later. What a concept!
