Could nor render 3D Warehouse models in SU Podium V2


#1

Load furnitures, appliances, and lighting into Sketchup but could not make it show up in the Rendering (using SU Podium V2). Could someone give me some pointers and directions.


#2

can you show us a picture of the result? What do you mean could not render? they appeared like in the model (unrendered) or just didn’t show up?


#3

First attachment - show what I have in the model.
Second attachment - after render with SU Podium

The plants and pots are not showing. I took out the appliances and drew in simple one.

#5

Faces are sided. Are the missing elements modeled with the backside face facing outward?


#6

Not sure, still new to Sketchup and SU Podium. Also the graphic on the ceiling top could not get it to look like before it render.


#7

Usually backside faces result in a black texture. (if you mirror a grouping -1, it may also result in the texture just being pure black)

I can’t explain the missing plants though. Nor do I know what’s going on with the ceiling.

Try exploding the downloaded plants all the way to separate faces and edges again, regroup, and then render. Ceiling may be a texture issue.
