Sample Models & Test Scenes

In this section there are several sample models that you are welcome to download and to open.

These are SketchUp 7 models but will work in SketchUp 8 and newer. Use these models to test the rendering capabilities of SU Podium V2/V2+, and get a feel for how Podium's light and material settings work.

Please Note - The images shown on this page all use SU Podium’s Physical Sky. Turn on Shadows and then go to the Options settings and in the Environment tab, make sure Physical Sky is on. The output resolution is up to you.
