Welcome to SketchUp, Vray and other Resources

Everyone is capable of learning. Learning is part of life. It is a social process of living and bringing everyone to share their inherited resources and discoveries. All of us can influence the life of others through sharing and caring. It is our belief that everyone should be a lifelong learner.

I am putting very important visualization resources and series: tutorials, tips, tricks, VRAY materials and settings, and mini-the-making (MTM) processes.

Tutorial: How to make roof using Batzal roof plugin then importing to SketchUp

Arch. Archie Roscom allowed us to share this tutorial to this community. This is an excellent workflow how to creates a eoof using Batzal plugin in 3dmax and then reimporting to SketchUp.

Softwares: Google SketchUp 8 Free, Vray 1.49.01, 3DMax2011 64-bit and FBX

Introduction: This is the most reliable setting for me: I used ring for mesh cover and shingle shin 1 with the height og .004m, as much as possible, don't increase the number of segment. I encountered am error when I increased it and used the other type of shingles. Once the imported .3ds file is in SketchUp, make sure to replace its default material which is material_1 or else it wont render because VraySU will not manage to relink it.

This is the sample report of error: Vfs_Stderr notepad -->
Exception: In __handleReferencedPlugin could not find /material_1

error log is located in these directories:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ASGVIS\VfS\vfs_stderr.txt
