Podium Browser standalone web application

In some cases, you may need to access SU Podium Browser outside of SketchUp. This may be due to firewall interference or something to do with security issues that does not let you work with Podium Browser inside SketchUp.

For those cases, we have prepared a stand-alone version of Podium Browser that works within any web Browser and functions from outside of SketchUp.

You can access the Podium Browser stand-alone site here:

EULA: You will be asked to agree to the EULA every time you access Podium Browser Stand alone. Click on the "I agree to the above" button to proceed.

Using Podium Browser standalone in a web browser:

This Podium Browser version is not a SketchUp plugin, meaning items cannot be insterted directly into your SketchUp model. Instead, items are downloaded from our server, and saved to your disk as .skp files, at which point you will need to take the extra step and import these .skp files into your SketchUp session manually. If you are not sure how to import items into SketchUp, read here for an explanation.

The fastest way to insert these models into your SketchUp file is to click and drag the .skp file from the folder on your computer directly onto the SketchUp viewport, then release the mouse and the .skp file will be imported.

If you are a Free category user, simply download .skp files from the various Free categories. If you have a Podium Browser 2020 or SU Podium V2.6 license, follow the steps here to activate the web version.

Note: Mac users with Safari 7 (Maverick). Do not use Safari 7 if you want to use the stand alone web version. Use FireFox or Chrome. Safari will add an .html file extension to the .skp files being downloaded.
