Enscape Blog Post: BEST PRACTICES FOR LIGHTS AND MATERIALS IN SKETCHUP

I had the opportunity to write another post for the Enscape blog. Click the image below or the link at the end of this article to go to the Enscape website.


People who know me for my Revit books and presentations are often surprised to hear that I have also written books on hand sketching and SketchUp. This week’s post takes a break from Revit and focuses on Enscape’s support for SketchUp. Using a few keywords in your material names and placing special ‘Enscape Objects’ such as light sources, one can quickly turn a SketchUp model into a work of art!


The image above...
shows the result of placing special Enscape objects in SketchUp to represent light sources, and a few keywords were added to some material names to add sheen and reflectances.

Click the image below to see more about my SketchUp book. It has not been updated for the most current version, but this book mainly covers the basics, which have not really changed.
