Laubwerk Plants
Load Laubwerk's procedural plant models into SketchUp and render them in high quality using V-Ray or Thea.
Laubwerk Plants

Bring your models to life with high quality vegetation!

The Laubwerk Plants extension gives users of V-Ray or Thea for SketchUp access to an extensive library of render-ready, realistic, procedural 3D plants. The plants are loaded as simple proxy objects into your SketchUp model. At render time these are automatically exchanged by the high detail representation. That way, you can quickly place and interact with your model even with many trees in your scene, while the highly details full quality version is created in the background and only loaded at render-time.

The plants contain full render-ready materials and texture set up for your renderer. No manual set up of materials or manual proxy set up needed.

Switch Age, Variation and Season

Each Plants Kit contains a selection of ten species in three variations, three ages, and four seasons, leading to a total of 360 model variants per Kit. Change the models to suit your needs

Full Control over Plant Details

Every plant is a procedural model that lets you change a number of parameters through the Plant Attribute Editor. That way you can easily change the age, variation, season, as well as leaf density and level of detail for the rendered geometry.

Browse the Library

The Laubwerk Plants Extension includes a browser that gives you a quick overview over all plant models with thumbnails, botanical and common name, description, and size ranges. It also sports a quick search box.

Laubwerk Plants works perfectly with the interactive rendering modes of both, V-Ray and Thea. That way plants can be removed and added, different variations can be swapped in, and settings can be changed, while working in an interactive rendering session.
