A few great new items have been released to help make SketchUp an even more powerful product to use.
The first is the release of Shaderlight v2. We showed you Shaderlight earlier this year, as it’s a great plugin that helps make your SketchUp models look amazingly realistic. With Shaderlight v2, it’s even better.
You can read more about it on the Shadelight blog, or check out some videos of the new features on their YouTube channel.
The other interesting release is the PCB Converter plugin from RS Components. This plug-in can convert 2D circuit board designs from IDF to COLLADA, which SketchUp can then read and write.
For more about how this tool works, you can check out the Google SketchUp Blog or watch the short video below:
