Cubits lets you download, view, and save 3D models from Trimble 3D Warehouse, or load your own KMZ files exported from SketchUp. Explore the thousands of high-quality models, including those from the Google Earth building layer, or show off your own projects.

• Load KMZ files exported from SketchUp — sync them using iTunes, or open them from Mail attachments or other apps that support document sharing, such as Dropbox.
• Pan, rotate, and zoom with intuitive, orbit-style multitouch gestures
• Choose your own background colors and style — a solid color or gradient between high and low "sky" colors with optional ground plane
• Pinpoint a model's real-world location on a map
• Take screenshots to sync back to your computer or use in other iPhone apps
• Tweak many custom settings — toggle lighting, textures and axes, change backgrounds, or adjust advanced options like mipmapping
• Enjoy the carefully designed user interface
• Full support for Retina displays

Ratings and Reviews

SketchUp is very powerful with cubits


Email yourself .kmz attachments and open them on your iPad and you get great results. Very beautiful renderings that you can spin around and pinch to zoom very intuitively.

the search results still won't update!!!

I posted two models in the past month and nothing has pulled up relating to them on the search results, which shows that the search results only update when the app updates, which makes the app pretty much useless.

Great for viewing small models, even on 3GS


I bought this so I could easily show SketchUp models for some house renovations to contractors on my iPhone 3GS. I was expecting poor performance on my older phone, but for my simple bathroom models performance is smooth. Its a bit choppy on a basement model I did, but that includes some more complex furniture components (including a drum set). It doesn't render everything quite perfectly (sometimes merging coplanar surfaces into one), but that may be an issue with the export to KMZ from SketchUp and not this application. Getting my models from Dropbox was easy, but I can see how it could be confusing if you aren't familiar with how doc sharing works in iOS. You need to "send" the KMZ file from the Dropbox app to Cubits, not the other way around.
