What you might not know, is that these guys work on a new plugin for SketchUP, and SketchUP Pro for architects, a plug-in that will revolutionize how we visualize architectural projects in real-time 3D with photo-real illumination called LumenRT.
From the creators:
Thanks to LumenRT, architects no longer have to choose between high-quality images and real-time visualization: They can walk or fly through their designs and experience the true quality of light in fully interactive 3D!
LumenRT real-time environments can even be packaged into convenient, self-contained executables that can be run on any computer without requiring additional software.
In Depth Review | SketchUp 7.1 for Architectural Visualization
a book by Robin de Jongh
This week you might have noticed a “Featured Book” section on our middle sidebar. Well the book is entitled SketchUp 7.1 for Architectural Visualization – Beginner’s Guide and is a detailed guide, that will literally take you by the hand and teach you how to make stunning photo-realistic and artistic visuals of your projects, with free software, and free resources that you can find all over the internet.
So let me start my review, because I can’t wait to tell you guys about the things you can learn through this book.
This is a recent finding via Youtube, and we think you will love this training available for free, as well as the paid one. The video embeded here on the site is the first one they launched and it’s basically a tutorial for drawing a 3d lantern. But enough blabbering, this is what you can do with Sketchup, a awesome software from the good ol’ Google:
Enjoy, and if you think this was helpful, drop a line, don’t be just a passer-by.
This morning Google announced Google SketchUp 7.1. This new version will be a free upgrade for existing Pro users, and has emphasis on three important aspects of this easy-to-use (yet powerful and extensible) software: performance, an improved version of LayOut (2.1) and collaboration.
As for performance, the engine has been improved and you will notice that orbiting, zooming and drawing can be quicker and smoother in 7.1, for both PC and Mac editions.
LayOut 2.1, the SU componente that enables you to create presentation boards and design documents straight from your model, has now the ability to apply dimensions to scaled SU models and vector graphics. Based on my personal experience, LayOut is very good to deliver quick construction documents and has helped me a lot working with furniture manufacturers. The new dimension tool is something I was waiting for.
