Export white faces after material applied

On this page:

http://www.sketchupartists.org/tutorials/sketchup-and-v-ray/its-all-about-tricks/

I see nice exports. I have a model made up of many different types of models and materials. I would like to ignore my materials and export as white surfaces, both with lines (above link" Good View Point") and without (above link “White-Sun”).

I’ve looked in my styles panel and haven’t seen it but i’m new to sketchup and could have missed it.

Also, any way to make nice shadows without using Vray?

Sounds like you missed the Hidden Line face style. With a white background you’ll have black edges and white faces.

What exactly do you mean by “nice shadows”?

Good Question. “By nice shadows” I mean any shadows at all. Trying to export a drawing that is full of crazy materials and patterns and achieve the nice look of this (without redoing every material on every surface): It’s All About Tricks… :: SketchUp 3D Rendering Tutorials by SketchUpArtists

but Sketchup never really creates shadows (like building shadows on the ground) sorry if this is a newb question

If you want just black edges and white faces/background, edit the style to use the Hidden Line face style, turn off sky and ground and set the background color to white. As for shadows, SketchUp will create them and cast them onto its ground plane or onto your modeled ground.

This is the model with the face style set to Shaded with Textures.
