Axis Camera Extension for SketchUp 3D CAD Software

Axis Camera Extension for SketchUp 3D CAD SoftwareAxis announced another new tool for integrators, architects and engineers that helps make designing video surveillance systems easier and more accurate with the introduction of the Axis Camera Extension for the popular SketchUp 3D CAD software.

With the new free-of-charge software extension from Axis, SketchUp users can select different Axis Network Cameras and insert them into 3D models of buildings to determine optimal layout and settings for surveillance coverage. They can evaluate different camera models, mounting positions, and pan, tilt and zoom cameras to visually depict real world coverage in a 3D CAD model to avoid blind spots and ensure optimal coverage.

Also, since SketchUp integrates with Google Maps, it makes it easier for architects, engineers, consultants and integrators to design surveillance systems for city surveillance or critical infrastructure projects. This new software extension joins other design tools from Axis including Axis Coverage Shapes for Microsoft Visio and Axis Camera Families for Autodesk Revit.
