RENDERLights for SketchUp

3D Render Announces the Release of RENDERLights for SketchUp

RENDERLight for SketchUp is the fastest and easiest to use real-time
Radiosity and light simulation engine in the architectural industry.

Helsinki, Finland – March 8, 2011–Leveraging over a decade of
visualization and software development experience, 3D Render today
announced the release of RENDERLights for SketchUp. Building upon their
widely successful RENDERLights engine, architects, visualization
artists and designers now have access to a real-time virtual reality
engine on the popular Google SketchUp platform.

“We are very excited to get RENDERLights for SketchUp into the hands of the design community”, said Pauli Jantunen
Development Manager for 3D Render, “The speed of the design process has
changed dramatically and we’ve developed the first virtual reality
engine that will truly democratize visualization throughout the design

Boasting an incredibly powerful and simple user interface,
RENDERLights for SketchUp was designed from the ground up with the
design industry in mind. In an increasingly competitive market, it has
become critically important to quickly and easily communicate design
intent with internal stakeholders and customers. RENDERLights for
SketchUp brings real-time to the masses with unprecedented real-time
performance, radiosity lighting simulation, Google 3D Warehouse
integration and the shortest and easiest learning curve of any virtual
reality application on the market.

“For me it was ideal to see and present the architectural design and related urban planning with a portable digital model” said Ilari Schouwvlieger, Chairman of Board at BMZ Invest. “It aided us to promote the design for city officials, hotel operators and investors.”

RENDERLights for SketchUp shares many of the advanced features and
functionalities of the core RENDERLights engine including: texture
baking, realistic environments, animation systems, sun and shadow
simulations, real-time bloom water and raytraced reflections, 3d
presentations, large model handling and their one click (Click ‘N’Go)
