A new feature that is focused on improving workflow during design, Material Styles makes it easy to explore design options and present these options to clients with ease. This is an easy to learn feature that will be appreciated by anyone who uses SketchUp as a design tool.
In the following image, 3 material styles have been stored and recalled to modify Lisanne's wardrobe.
Reflection is an important material setting for anyone striving for realism in the rendered image of their SketchUp model. Using Auto Reflection, the reflection values for intensity, sharpness, index of
refraction, and bump are preset, so reflection values for materials do
not have to be individually set. The interface to add and modify Auto Reflection for materials is easy to manage and preset values are easy to modify.
Learn more about Auto Reflection, just turn it on and render.
The IRender nXt interface has also been updated to improve the user experience. The interface is even easier to understand and use and will appeal to both new and expert IRender nXt users.
