Why Brighter3D?

Brighter3D SketchUp rendering plugin combines unique noiseless rendering technology
with easy to learn simple user interface for the beginner and advanced.
It works entirely inside SketchUp and is very fast to render a SketchUp model.

  • Unbiased

    Progressive unbiased mode - obtain a preview in seconds and a perfect image in a few minutes.

  • Noiseless

    Unique algorithms allow a noise free image from the start!

  • Lighting

    Support for artificial, daylight and HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging) lighting!
    You can also generate HDR content saving results as .exr or .hdr files.

  • Materials

    Brighter3D provides over 100 different predefined materials, and also allows you to create millions of them combining:
    index of refraction,
    Fresnel term,
    and more…

  • Regular mode

    In regular mode, it computes the final image line by line from the beginning, which guarantees that the difference between the calculated pixel value and the “true solution” will be less than 2% in contrast value. According to Weber’s law, errors of this scale are undetectable by the human eye.

  • Multithreading

    Fully utilizes CPU power by multitasking and is optimized for Intel’s processors, does not require an expensive graphics card.
