Add photo-realism to your SketchUp model right within SketchUp! SU Podium runs completely inside SketchUp Pro from start to finish. It uses SketchUp features such as textures, background, colors and shadows to achieve impressive results. Its simple interface cuts the learning curve to minutes instead of days. Make an impression without the pain!

With SU Podium you can quickly turn your SketchUp scenes into a photorealistic rendering. Because it runs inside SketchUp Pro, it makes use of various parameters from your model, so you do not need to set this up separately first.


Because SU Podium uses the features of the SketchUp model, you do not really have to set that much. If you also use the materials and objects from the Podium Browser (render ready library for SU Podium), you really only need to press 'render' for a nice rendering!


With SU Podium you can share your scenes with your customers in different ways. In addition to generating photo-realistic images, you can also create interactive 360-degree panoramas of your 3D models, so that your customer can look around virtually!


SU Podium is equipped with the following functionalities to offer you simple, but high-quality rendering.

Podium Browser

Podium Browser

Podium Browser is a SketchUp Extension with extra 3D light fixtures, 2D face-me plants, 3D plants and high-resolution materials, which you can drag directly from a web server into your SketchUp model. These objects and materials are already 'render-ready' for SU Podium, allowing you to dress up your scene quickly and easily. The Podium Browser also has a Paid Content section, with thousands of additional light fittings, plants, furniture and materials. Look in the above table 'Prices' for the most recent price of the Paid Content of the Podium Browser.

Podium Server

Podium Server

Podium Server is a standalone application that resembles the SU Podiums Render Manager, but does not require installation of SketchUp. It can read in and render the .script batches from SU Podium. The ideal way to put multiple scenes from a single scene (eg by GenerateAll) or to place renders from different workstations in 1 queue and render them in a batch. Look in the above table 'Prices' for the most recent price of Podium Server.
