There are many things that can be added on to SketchUp.  One of these add-ons is the ability to make panorama images or 360 degree views in the model.  The setup is easy for PC’s: download CubicPanoOut from Smustard.com.  Then download GoCubic.exe from panoguide.com. The Smustard plugin goes into your SketchUp plugins folder.  Open your model and select your opening view. Then go up to Camera -> CubicPano Out. You can select the pixels of the images and a few other settings before clicking Ok.  It takes time (five minutes or so), but eventually it will make five images.  Then start GoCubic.  GoCubic is a simple program that takes the exported images from SketchUp and converts them into a QTVR format.  The “movie” output is an .mov file that can be read by QuickTime Movie Player.  The file can be placed online or emailed.
