SketchUp 2014: Overview

Models galore, easier to find and use

SketchUp 2014 1.jpg

SketchUp’s universe of free 3D models is almost infinite; the improvements we’ve made to 3D Warehouse make that universe infinitely more useful. From fully-interactive model previews to an entirely new UI, the changes in 2014 are huge.

BIM classification and interoperability

With SketchUp Pro 2014, you don’t have to sell a kidney or go back to school to start adding elements of BIM (Building Information Modeling) to your models. We added features for classifying objects and exporting files according to some of the industry’s most common BIM standards.

Time-saving tools for documentation

When designing things that you will not be building yourself, it all comes down to the documents. LayOut in SketchUp Pro 2014 takes care of dates, page numbers, and repetitive text so you can focus on what matters: making better drawings.

SketchUp 2014. Now with more oomph

Everyone wants SketchUp to get faster—especially us. That’s why we tweak the code every version to speed things up. This time, we supercharged shadows in big models and made vector rendering in LayOut more than ten times as quick.

I installed sktechup 2014 and the latest Irender nxt but once I am in sketchup I can not get any of my irender tools bars to come up. I do see the irender within my plugin drop down window but all it says is iRender nxt - load. when I click on it it does nothing.

Here is the error message I get when I try and load irender within Sketchup:

We just found a bug that was keeping IRender nXt from loading correctly in 2014.

We're fixing it and will post a new install after we build it and test it a bit.

OK, will you post on this discussion when it is ready?

We fixed this.

Please try the new version, NB28, on the download site:



Thank you. That worked.


I tried the new version with SketchUp 2014 and still cannot access IRender - no plugin window and doesn't show under Preferences-Extensions. 

Do you mean that Plugins is not a menu choice at all for you in SketchUp 2014?

Yes.  No plugins option and iRender doesn't show under Preferences - extensions.

Could you open the Ruby Console window and type in:

load 'RPS_IRender_nxt.rb'

and then:

load 'RPS_IRender_nxt/RPS_IRender_nxt2.rb'

To see what errors we see?

I see:
