Save of export Vector from SketchUp Twilight Rendering?



I’m using Windows, SU 2014 and Twilight Rendering for SU.
Can Someone please tell how I might take a sketchup of a house saved in a Twilight Rendering and export as a vector file for large printing?

Thanks, BIlly


renderings are raster data by design, render in the highest resolution Twilight Render enables you for printing on large format printers (aka plotters).


Thank you Sketch3d_de I’ll look into it.


Hi there, Havent been able to find info about “plotters,” in Twilight do you have any more suggestions? thanks, Billy


Plotters output vector lines. A rendered image is not that, but an image, some form of bitmap (or a raster as previous post said) . A plotter can’t print images, but a large format printer can.


pen plotters as well as inkjet or electrostatic plotters (the latter called large format printers today) are output devices and not a Twilight setting… just configure the width/height [pixel] of the render output size as big as possible:

for calculating the needed amount of pixels for the desired paper size in the desired resolution [dpi] you may want use an according online calculator.


Thank you, This is going on a billboard. Have not talked to the billboard maker but have had a few discussions with printers who say it also depends on the closeness to the rendering and the size.


I was able to resolve this by using the chart and settings in Twilight
