What is Scan Essentials?
Trimble Scan EssentialsforSketchUp is the most complete point cloud solution for modeling from scan data. This plug-in allows you to easily import point clouds, view them, and model directly on the points during model creation via SketchUp’s native toolbox. Whether you import data from terrestrial scans, mobile mapping, photogrammetry, lidar sensors, or drone captures, the Trimble Scan Essentials plug-in makes your job easy and fast. It’s the essential bridge from reality to completed models.
What is V-Ray 5 for SketchUp?
V-Ray 5 for SketchUp is a photorealistic, physically-based rendering solution that helps designers better visualize their models. Additional features include real-time rendering capabilities with V-Ray Vision, Chaos Cosmos for curated, render-ready 3D content, and access to Chaos Cloud.
What are Chaos Cloud credits?
Chaos Cloud enables users to do fast rendering, by using the cloud. High-quality rendering takes a lot of computation resources, and will run a lot slower with a lower-spec machine. Chaos Cloud credits are used to ‘pay’ for the cloud renderings.
For new SketchUp Studio subscribers, we're including 20 Chaos Cloud credits to get customers started within the first 90 days of their subscription. The 90-day period begins when the subscription is assigned to an end-user. If you’re an existing Studio subscriber the 90-day period begins today. Cloud credits do not transfer to other users. These credits are not available in a trial.
