Bring the 3D Warehouse Component into the SketchUp Model

  • Search SketchUp’s 3D Warehouse for the “boat” under the model tab (or use link: boat | 3D Warehouse)
  • Load the model into SketchUp

Install Veras

  • Download the installer for windows here: Veras Installer (Windows)
  • Run the downloaded msi installer, which will add the SketchUp extension and you should see a new Veras button

Start Veras

  • Start Veras by using the Veras logo button in your toolbar

Setup the View

  • align the camera in the desired angle for rendering
  • once aligned, click the Refresh Preview button
  • you should see the aligned view in the render
  • NOTE: I expanded the water plane, and painted it with one of the materials that comes out of the box with SketchUp
