sketchup announce 2017

SketchUp 2017 Available Now

The newest version of SketchUp, 2017 is available from Trimble SketchUp.  You can read more about it from the SketchUp website here.

As always, the SketchUp team has made a variety of improvements.  One of the major changes is the move to an new hardware-based shader design for their 3D graphics display.  Note that this imposes some new restrictions on what kind of hardware can run SketchUp 2017.  You can read more about that here.  Also note that with SU2017, they are dropping support for 32-bit (X86) versions for Windows (support for 32-bit OSX was already dropped in a previous version).

To install Twilight Render V2 to SketchUp 2017, you will want to download and run the latest Twilight Render installers.  You can find the installers here on our website under the Latest Version.

The latest installers for Twilight Render are signed and ready to go, so you shouldn't encounter any problems.  If you do, please let us know on our user forum with as complete a description as possible.  Please note, for some users, Twilight Render may not automatically show up after installing.  If that is the case for you, launch SketchUp and open the Preferences window.  Click on Extensions, then in the list, find Twilight2, and make sure it is checked.

We always recommend that you just download the latest installer (making sure to pick the right version!) and rerun it.  That will always ensure your installation is correct, instead of using a plugin manager to do it.

You can find the installers here: Latest Version.

For OSX users, please note that we are dropping support for OSX 10.8The minimum OSX version for installing Twilight Render V2.7 is OSX 10.9.
