How to speed up your modeling in sketchup with v-ray proxies

In this sketchup v-ray video tutorial, you will learn how to use v-ray proxies in skethup models to produce superior quality renderings with high polygon models.

Rendering in sketchup becomes complicated since sketchup can’t deal with high polygon models. So, if there are more faces and geometries in the model, the modeling process become slower since sketchup does not handle all the geometries efficiently.

With high polygon, high detail model inside your sketchup model, it becomes difficult to produce realistic rendering. But v-ray contains a tool known as proxies that facilitates to export the objects out of your model and substitute them with a low polygon preview model.


When rendering starts, v-ray will reference those files called meshes externally devoid of showing them in your model.
To learn the detail process, go through the following video tutorial.

Raylectron Render - The newest sketchup plugin

SoftByte Labs, Inc develops Raylectron Render, a user-friendly and photorealistic rendering and animation plugin for sketchup to transform any 3d models into a photo-realistic image.

The plugin is compatible with SketchUp 8, SketchUp 2013, SketchUp 2014, SketchUp 2015, SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017 and SketchUp 2018 as well as windows platform.

Raylectron facilitates the professional artists, hobbyist or anyone who produce 3D designs and wishes to convert their models into photorealism presentations, and/or to observe their models in 3D stereo just as they were real.

Raylectron includes all the settings to modify the output, as a result, no other software is necessary for executing the task.

With the help of material, it is possible to provide diverse effects for materials. It ranges from reflection (like mirror), refraction (like glass), transparency, glossiness, shininess, bump maps, normal maps and background images. Generate your individual grass & fur. Shadows are not fraudulent or simulated like "Soft shadows". Caustics are also real, not fraudulent or simulated.

Make your own animation that offers you a hands-free tour of a model.

Raylectron employs all the CPU cores and threads (user selectable) to render at a rapid speed and new GPU version available.

For more clarification, watch the following video tutorial.

Some useful sketchup tips to improve your modelling skill with sketchup

Given below, some handy tips for sketchup users to improve their modeling skills significantly.
01. Apply the 3D Warehouse gallery: examine and cleanse models prior to importing them.
There is a universe of downloadable 3D models made by other users that can fast-track the construction of your own models. To avoid adding additional information such as lines, layers, and materials, which will only increase file sizes, purge the model's components before saving them.
02. Place the model properly in space.
Geo-referencing a project facilitates you to consider it with regards to location, an intuitive quality for any successful architectural scheme. It is required to place a 3D model, avail it from the window> model information> geolocation> add location / define location customarily.
It is also very important to consider the time zone of each location.
03. Employ plugins and explore the new things in Extension Warehouse.
SketchUp users create different types of plugins which provide solution to the problems in each version as well as utilize the capability of accessible tools, and integrate new 3D modeling equipment.
Extensions are available from Solar North, which offer tools to fix the orientation for the angle of sunlight and shadows, to Sketchy FFD, a mesh operated with a series of control points in its vertices and edges to manipulate the dimensions of the chosen object.
04. Arrange and save your toolbar settings.
It is very crucial to customize the work surroundings as per your requirements and preferences. Make sure that your ideal settings are saved for future application, just manage sufficient time to arrange a toolbar. It will be possible to accomplish tasks in organized way and invest more time in concepts, design, and detailing.
05. Utilize groups and components to streamline editing and developing a model.
The most powerful feature of sketchup is to arrange models into groups of objects, lines or figures. The process is very quick and easy (secondary button> create group) and facilitate you to modify a specific section of your model (by double-clicking on it), keeping the other figures near the object unchanged. It is suggested to double-click on the newly generated surface, thus choose both faces and edges, and make a group prior to utilize the push / pull tool or any other modification.

How to resolve the issue while modeling in groups & components in sketchup

In this sketchup video tutorial, you will get some nice tricks which will be very helpful while modeling inside of groups and components.

Groups and components play an important role to make the model clean and valid. But sometime, problem arises when the geometry is invisible at the time of editing when the remaining part of the model gets in your way. By applying these tricks, it is possible to get a clear view while editing components. It becomes easier to edit inside of a group or components.

To start with, go to window tab and from the drop down menu click on modeling info option and then click on components tab. Here, couple sliders are available. Under editing display, there are two sliders namely Fade Similar Components and Fade Rest of Model. Under Component Axes, there is one check box called show component axes. Make necessary changes in the sliders to resolve the issue.

There is another option. Go to view menu and from drop down lists click on component edit and select either hide rest model or hide similar components.

To learn the tips in detail, go through the following video tutorial.

How to include v-ray materials in your sketchup models from v-ray material library

This is an exclusive Vray 3.6 for SketchUp tutorial which will teach you how to apply materials from v-ray material library to texture objects in sketchup to perform more superior renderings.

In v-ray, there is an extensive library that contains various materials and these materials can be employed in your sketchup models. You can get a superior rendering output as compared to low resolution sketchup materials.

The v-ray material library can be accessed from v-ray asset editor. Just make sure that the material section is clicked on, then click on the arrow located in left-hand side and go through the pop up menu with different categories where all the materials of v-ray are listed. As for instance, if you click on brick section, you will find various types of brick materials.

How to create curved ramp with various sketchup plugins

This is an exclusive video tutorial for sketchup users for learning how to create the design of a curved ramp in sketchup.

To create the model of curved ramp the following types of sketchup plugins are used :-

Fredo6 Tools (CurviShear)
FredoTools group a series of individual plugins. By providing them as a single package, it is possible to lessen the footprint on Sketchup and get rid of setting up each plugin separately.
CurviShear is a small independent script that facilitates to deform a curve or a set of curves by shearing them vertically along their contour. It is generally what is required to approximate CURVED RAMPS.
Curviloft – Curviloft produces surfaces from curves by Lofting and Skinning
Loft by Spline unites individual contours, open or closed with smooth splines
Loft along Path combines contours, along a given rail curve.

Skinning makes surfaces bounded by 4 or 3 contiguous contours

JHS Powerbar - This tool is actually a compilation of robust extensions from other developers, like TIG, Thom Thom, Rick Wilson, Christina Eneroth, and more.
