Hi Ben,
Do you have an EvolveLAB Veras for SketchUp for educators and students?
If you could attach the EvolveLAB Veras for SketchUp as a free version to Sketchup for Students and Educators that would be great for them to explore Ai Rendering for creativity and inspiration during their studies. :upside_down_face:


We’re working on an educational version, to be released soon:

I think it’s important to make it more accessible for students and educators. If you’re an educator, we can set up the account manually. However, we want to automate this process.


Hi Ben,
I sent you an email through the contact details that I found on your website.
hope it will reach you :slight_smile:
