Phased construction / reveal building / 4D process

Hello to the community, a client recently asked me about this kind of animations that shows or reveals the building, an example of this:

Currently, I use Enscape for renders, but open to using another render engine, is there a way to fake this kind of works inside SketchUp and rendering engines?

I used before Supodium but migrated to Enscape for the last 2 years

You could model in Sketchup, then render in Blender. Just keyframe some boolean cutter objects moving to make the effect, then render your animation.

You can certainly do something very similar to the video with SketchUp by animating moving section planes contained within components and using scenes. Here is a quick and simple example done within SketchUp.


Thank you for the ideas/tips!
