If your question has to do with V-ray rendering

In SketchUp it is simple: create a material with a totally transparent PNG image as texture and paint your object with it. As @mihai.s shows, rendering applications are a different matter.

i’ve seen this solution yes and it helps but i’m concerned with the reflection of the object…would it also disappear?

i will use vray…would it still appear transparent in vray?

It would, but at default settings it wouldn’t cast shadows.
