Demo of VizPro for SketchUp

This sketchup video tutorial provides the demonstration of Viz parametric modeling sketchup extension.

The tutorial briefly explains how to operate through the extension as well as generate a basic parametric model in sketchup. The extension sustains all the modeling history.

Parametric modeling means monitor the steps to generate the model in order that the objects are modified in due course devoid of undo and redo the various steps.

To get started go to the menu Extensions -> Viz -> Start Viz, or click the Vz button on the toolbar. As soon as the Viz Pro window opens, press Spacebar key to include new nodes.


1. In SketchUp, choose Window > Extension Manager.
2. Click the Install Extension button.

3. A open dialog box will be visible, then navigate to the .rbz file saved to your computer, choose the file, and click OK (Microsoft Windows) or Open (Mac OS X).
4. Restart SketchUp

Watch the following video to learn the complete process to create parametric modeling in sketchup.

How to set up light for a daytime interior rendering with Vray 3.4 for sketchup

In this construction video tutorial, Minh from Architecture Inspirations, briefly explains the method to arrange the lighting perfectly for a daytime interior rendering with Vray 3.4 for sketchup.

The step-by-step methods include the followings :-

Trace your main light source
Modify camera settings

Improve the Sunlight
Lighten dark shadows
Modify sun settings

Notes :- Render settings are very crucial and there exist various rendering conditions like interior shots, dusk shots, and daytime shots which need diverse setups.

In V-Ray for Sketchup, the V-Ray interface runs within Sketchup. Different things like the sun, cameras, and materials are associated with each other among the two programs. If the sun angle in Sketchup is modified, the sun angle in V-Ray will also be changed.

Usually, the sun angle should be modified in Sketchup to set the shadows in proper position prior to move to V-Ray. The Sketchup scene that is going to be rendered in V-Ray should be saved by going to “View>Animation>Add Scene”.

It is very useful while overlaying Sketchup image exports on top of the V-Ray renderings or it is required to render the similar view subsequently.

To learn the complete process, watch the following video tutorial.
