I have watched the video which you have uploaded here and came to know about the V-Ray 3 sketch up. Since it is explained with this video, the concept is very clear to me. Thank you. Keep updating more details on this topic. interior remodeling contractor

I cannot get the Vray for sketchup demo to work at all. The installer just keeps prompting me to install the demo, but the demo never appears on my hard drive.

Is there a way around this?

Hello,

V-Ray does not support materials on dynamic components, and blocks SketchUp.

Because of this error, our Plugin Click-kitchen, can not operate with the presence of V-Ray.

This is a problem that must absolutely solve !

Many users need these two popular plugins, so it would be damaging not find the cause of the problem.

Thank you in advance for your analysis.

Cordially

Hola, tengo problemas al usar la extension.
Me he descargado el demo y lo he instalado perfectamente. El problema es que no me aparecen los comandos en sketchup para realizar el render. Que puedo hacer, no consigo encontrar ningun tutorial.

Gracias

even i am getting the same problem but i 2015
can please somebody resolve this error

On the official site has a demo version compatible with SketchUp in 2015.
Use the make, free version without professional intent, but as self-taught learning in various 3D programs. Blender 2.74 is another that I know more. I found the facility to draw like in SketchUp. Very intuitive, easy.
If I am using Google translator, sorry errors. I did not the demo version is valid, or as the raylectron is limited.
I appreciate a brief answer.

hermosa vray :)

As pessoas tem a mania de baixar programas sem ao menos ler um pouco a descrição deste programa. Tanta gente perguntando/reclamando que o vray é imcopatível com o sketup 2014. Antes de baixarem leiam as informações do programa.

SketchUp 8, SketchUp 2013"

Cant install in Sketchup 2013 - “no plugin file found?'

I am having the same trouble with Sketchup 2014.

Alyshaya2013®'s picture

Beautiful. But does anyone know where I can find a free rendering software that's about at this level? If not, I'll just try to enhance my bland sketchup renders on GIMP. EDIT: and no free version with watermarks or reduced quality, either. Those are IDIOTIC.

Trevor B's picture

Hi Alyshaya2013
Try Kerkythea, its free!

Raylectron Render V3 works great, has a free version and is watermark free, but be sure to get V3 because V4 has a watermark.
Here's the link to download it. Good luck!

Hola buanas!
Planteo una duda por si alguien pudiera contestarme:
Resulta que el vray para sketchup pro 2014 no me permite renderizar en una calidad alta, es decir, si yo por ejemplo quiero poner el tamaño 2048 x 1536 me renderiza siempre en el tamaño 533 x 400 cual puede ser el motivo?
Gracias

Angel M's picture

Saludos Lucia, eso sucede cuando tienes la version de prueba.
