How to use slice for sketchup to slice any solid objects

This is another useful presentation on a sketchup extension from Justin Geis. In this sketchup tutorial one will be familiar with slicer for sketchup. This is a free sketchup extension developed by TIG. This sketchup extension facilitates the users to slice any solid object into different pieces. The users can obtain slices of their SketchUp model to develop a real life model. These slices can be exported as a CNC router.

The Plugin creates slices out of a specified 3D model and the users will be able to select the required axis to be applied for the slices to be generated.

The plugin can extent the slices on the ground plane to arrange a Top view and Export to AutoCad.

To apply the plugin, opt for a group or component, go to Plugins –> Slicer and then use the dialog box to organize how the slices will be produced.

In order to activate this plugin, the Mac users have to install this font from sketchucation.com

Shaderlight Revolutionizes 3D Rendering For Sketchup

A new 3D rendering tool is transforming the way Google SketchUp is being used across the globe. Since the launch of Shaderlight in October, SketchUp fans everywhere have been eager to test it out.

Shaderlight is a fully integrated plug-in that introduces interactive rendering to Google SketchUp 7 and SketchUp 8. The full release features Shaderlight’s unique ‘progressive’ rendering that enables users to see their image develop on screen as they continue to work inside SketchUp.

However you use Google SketchUp, Shaderlight is a tool designed to fit seamlessly with your workflow. Its familiar UI and simplicity make it the perfect tool to dive straight in to and render the kind of images that your clients expect to see.

The physically-based lighting and photorealistic materials within Shaderlight deliver high quality results that let you accurately visualise your concepts in 3D without the need to be a rendering expert.

Some feedback to date from SketchUp users:

Robin de Jongh, author of SketchUp 7.1 for Architectural Visualisation, said:


“I reviewed most of the major rendering software out there that supports SketchUp. Learning how the majority of them worked was painful to say the least. If you want to avoid that kind of pain (take it from someone who knows!) then Shaderlight is the renderer for you.”

Shaderlight for SketchUp is proving a popular addition to Google SketchUp in colleges around the globe.  The powerful combination of the Google SketchUp and Shaderlight lets students express their ideas quickly and simply, transforming their concepts from simple 3D models into stunning, photorealistic images with ease. Students and colleges worldwide are choosing the software over more complex rendering packages that are costly and time consuming to teach.

Professor of 3D Modelling at The Florence Institute of Interior Design, Sekhar Roy, said: “I have spoken to many colleges about the benefits of Shaderlight, one of which is now considering introducing SketchUp to courses so that Shaderlight can be taught! Shaderlight is going to truly effect the educational market as most students are looking for easy render solutions to bring their designs to another level”.

Users can download Shaderlight now from http://www.shaderlight.com and experience all the ‘Pro’ features free for 14 days, after which time Shaderlight Pro is available for $199.
