V-Ray 3.0 for SketchUp is now shipping!
There are two Licensing options with V-Ray 3.0 for SketchUp:
- USB Hardware Lock (Dongle)
- On-Line Licensing
On-Line Licensing requires a constant internet connection (more details at the bottom of this page). If a USB Hardware Lock is preferred that is a separate purchase at an additional £22 plus VAT.
V-Ray 3.0 for SketchUp has been completely overhauled and improved to make it the most capable and effective renderer available for SketchUp. V-Ray is used by visualising professionals worldwide and is the leading rendering solution for other platforms such as 3DS Max, Maya and Rhino. Now the full power of V-Ray is available for SketchUp.
At the heart of V-Ray is an extremely efficient multicore ray-tracing engine. V-Ray has been optimised specifically for ray tracing, allowing users to create complex shading, area shadows, camera effects and GI with unprecedented speed and accuracy.

With the release of V-Ray 3 for SketchUp, there is now an online licensing option. With online licensing there is no wait to receive a physical dongle, and licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed. Online licensing is fast and secure, and you will be able to access your new software much faster – without the back and forth of WBC and RTU files. For online licensing to work you need to have constant internet access or else V-Ray will not function.
