SketchUp Studio 2021 Relaunch

We’ve been busy evolving the Studio offering to make it [even] more robust for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) professionals. With that in mind, we are excited to announce two brand-spankin’ new features that will have your workflow more enriched and streamlined than ever before. Welcome to the Studio family, V-Ray and Scan Essentials!

Real-time & photorealistic rendering with V-Ray 5

Visualisation is without question a huge part of the AEC professionals’ workflow – whether that be during design reviews with your team or client, or when you are presenting your design for final approvals. With V-Ray, you can now take your design from idea to photorealistic render by tweaking lighting, adding shadows, touching up reflective coatings, selecting global illumination settings – and so much more. Get started by exploring Chaos Cosmos, V-Ray’s robust, smart 3D content library. Download render-ready content, such as vegetation and people, directly into your SketchUp design – saving you time modelling.

Even better, you can also take advantage of real-time rendering capabilities with V-Ray Vision. Compared to slower, traditional rendering processes, V-Ray Vision lets you quickly make edits on the fly — while modeling in SketchUp. With instant rendering at your fingertips, you can quickly present ideas to clients and drastically shorten project timelines — either in the office or completely remote. Flexibility at its finest. Once you’re done modeling, export screenshots, animations, and panoramic images for virtual reality viewing. Talk about elevating your design visualisation process!

Import point cloud data with Scan Essentials

Similar to PreDesign and Add Location, Scan Essentials is, well, essential from the very start of your workflow. By giving you the tools to import, view, and model directly on point cloud data in SketchUp, it serves as a blueprint for a solid 3D foundation. Whether you’re retrofitting or delivering a new build, you don’t need to start from scratch. Some features to help support your workflow include importing point clouds from drones, terrestrial scans, photogrammetry, lidar sensors, and mobile mapping; modeling directly on point clouds; comparison functionality to ensure your model is aligned with your point cloud; alternate views; as well as the ability to zoom on specific sections, and alter colors and transparency. Your context is ready for 3D primetime! Once you’re done with your 3D model, it’s time to go to 2D with a direct LayOut integration. Save modeling time by exporting contextual scan data directly into LayOut for professional documentation.

Ultimately, the point cloud visual is the richest data of all, but the benefits it brings to your entire workflow are invaluable; for example, increasing modeling accuracy and efficiency. With Scan Essentials, you can better integrate project stages, from site surveys to design, construction, and then post-construction, supporting greater success on complex projects.
