 Podium Server - Stand-alone OOPR installation

Podium Server is a stand-alone implementation of the Podium render-manager that can be used to render Podium .scripts on a computer without a full SketchUp / Podium installation.

Podium Server / OOPR can be installed on a second computer to be used for rendering alongside your primary workstation so that you can continue working while your images are rendering.

Learn more about Podium Server and try the beta here.
