Kubity PRO is a simple plugin that takes your SketchUp models and Revit projects from the desktop to any device without compromising the original file.

Kubity automatically syncs 3D models to your phone or tablet in a single click. Imagine exploring a model onsite with push-button augmented reality, walking through a space with clients in next-gen immersive 1:1 VR, or pulling a model out of your pocket to present in big screen style in seconds.

The webinar is free and will last about one hour, including the Q&A session.

Who should attend?

Architects. Engineers. Designers. Anyone who uses 3D and is looking for cutting-edge communication tools and affordable AR/VR solutions.

Abvent have developed a variety of export plugins so you can avoid using a standard exchange file format between your modeler and Artlantis, as well as the risk of losing information that method involves. The latest plugin for Vectorworks is ready to download and use right now.

Download Plugin

Artlantis allows you to use models designed with almost all of the 3D applications on the market, without losing any information! As stand-alone rendering software, Artlantis can import many commonly used 3D formats including .DXF, .DWG, .OBJ and .3DS.

Artlantis is compatible with many other 3D packages including SketchUp Pro, Rhino, and more. Click here to view Artlantis plugins.

Shaderlight 2018 Update Available Now

Shaderlight for SketchUp

We are excited to announce the release of a free update to Shaderlight 2018 that includes a number of feature enhancements that improve the usability of Shaderlight.

This update is available FREE to users with a Shaderlight 2018 license. Anyone with an earlier version can purchase an upgrade to access the full features of Shaderlight 2018.

Download the Update

Precise adjustment of environment rotation

The addition of a numeric entry field now makes it easier to get an accurate match of the lighting environment and background image between different SketchUp models.

Warning when closing during render

To prevent accidentally losing the progress of a long-running render, Shaderlight will now warn if you attempt to close the render window while a render is in progress.

Keep Shaderlight ‘Always on Top’

If you select the ‘Always on Top’ setting Shaderlight will now keep the Shaderlight window above other windows between sessions.
