V-Ray® for SketchUp is a 3D rendering software that combines real-time and photoreal rendering — all in SketchUp. From beginner to pro, Chaos® V-Ray has all the tools you need to visualize your 3D architectural projects from start to finish.
Why choose V-Ray for rendering in SketchUp?
See your designs in real-time.
Seeing your Sketchup designs in real-time has never been easier. Now with V-Ray Vision, you can visualize your designs in real-time while you work in SketchUp. Move around your model, apply materials, set up lights and cameras — all in a live real-time view of your scene. You can also package your V-Ray Vision result for others to experience just like you did in SketchUp.
With true-to-life lights, cameras, and materials, rendering with V-Ray is as real as it gets. For any project, you can see exactly how it will look. It's as close you can come to the real thing before it’s built.
Employ our curated collection of smart assets — including high-quality models of furniture, accessories, vegetation and people — and stage your project with just a few clicks. The all-new Chaos Cosmos asset browser lets you easily drop render-ready 3D content right into your SketchUp scene.
V-Ray comes with hundreds of ready-to-render materials that you can apply to any scene and access to an extensive library of video tutorials, free technical support, and helpful forums. V-Ray has one of the largest visualization communities, with a world of community-created content that’s readily available.
V-Ray is the ultimate power-up for SketchUp.
V-Ray and SketchUp are the perfect team. SketchUp is the world's most widely used 3D modeling software for architecture and design. And V-Ray is the world's #1 rendering software for architectural visualization. The two together are the perfect combo to take your designs to the next level.
With V-Ray® 5 for SketchUp, update 2, you can craft your best work faster and present or share it in more engaging ways. The new V-Ray Decal makes it fast and easy to place materials onto surfaces without disturbing the underlying material, for everything from packaging labels to IndyCars. Quickly enrich your design with extensive entourage with the new Scatter tool—without encumbering SketchUp or V-Ray Vision. And share your V-Ray Vision results via video or interactive 3D versions of your scene.
