For those of you who use SketchUp and want to get serious about producing high quality renderings, I suggest Thea for SketchUp. There are many good rendering engines that integrate well with SU, but I like the big three- Maxwell, Vray, and Thea. For ease of use, speed, and quality, I find Thea to be my top pick. Vray offers the most variety of shaders, and Maxwell has a rich library of pre-made materials. Really, you can't go wrong with any of these three. But if you're interested in getting your SketchUp models into Thea for a quick render, I'm sharing this little tutorial that takes you through my workflow. It's not perfect but it works for me. So enjoy and feel free to ask questions if you have any. The design is by Ethan McMorrow Design and modeled by Robert Scott Residential Designs.
