Allura GPU - Photorealistic Rendering for SketchUp using NVIDIA Iray®


Works with SketchUp 2018 and earlier versions

Put your Graphics Processing Card to use for faster renderings!

Iray+, from NVIDIA, is now available as a plugin renderer for SketchUp using the Allura extension from Render Plus Software.  Try it free for 30 days (see link below)..

What is NVIDIA Iray+?

NVIDIA Iray+ is a 3D renderer which uses the power of your GPU (Graphics Processor) to perform the rendering. Iray+ quickly computes light paths and reflections.

Most of the rendering settings are automatic, e.g., indirect illumination, reflections, refractions, soft shadows, blurry reflections, reflective and refractive caustics, etc.

You just assign material properties in SketchUp, click render, and the rest pretty much takes care of itself.

What is GPU Rendering?

Iray+ is designed to make optimal use of GPU hardware which ensures that your rendering is as fast and as powerful as possible. We recommend using NVIDIA GPUs for best performance.

The ability to use your GPU(s) should be a major factor when you select a renderer.  SketchUp itself is very GPU intensive while editing and viewing your model, so many SketchUp users already have a good GPU. Put your GPU to work with Allura GPU renderer! Improve your rendering speed!

Render Plus - plugins and tools to enhance SketchUp - like IRender nXt for Photorealistic SketchUp Rendering. ---------- We have been developing SketchUp Apps for more than 7 years - starting with our first product RPS 3D PDF - for interactive Adobe PDF documents from SketchUp models - in which the user can orbit, pan and zoom on the 3D model. ---------- We added our PhotoRealistic Renderer - IRender nXt - a couple of years later. It is the premier rendering add-on for people wanting high quality rendering, full integration into SketchUp and a really responsive support team. ---------- We have a number of other SketchUp Add-Ons you will want to add to click arsenal of SketchUp extensions to improve your SketchUp productivity. ---------- The Authors of these tools, Rich Hart, Al Hart and Jake Hart, (perhaps we should rename the company to the Hart Bros.) are working constantly to improve the tools and add new features. Ask you colleagues about their experience with Render Plus products, and download any of them for a 30-day free trial.
