There have been a number of changes in IRender nXt this month. You should try the latest version. See: IRender nXt
RpTreeMaker is a free add-on for SketchUp to create custom Tree Components.
The custom trees are generated using a tree editor and then saved as 2D, always-face-camera, images in a SketchUp component for placement in your model.
- See this Thread on the SketchUp Community Forum for user responses and examples.
The Tree Editor is a feature of IRender nXt which allows you to create definitions for Fractal Trees, save them in a library as .ArPlant files and then use them as plants in IRender nXt.
We are going to release a special version of the Tree Editor as a free, stand-alone add-on for SketchUp. It will create custom trees and save them in SketchUp as 2D always-face-camera images. This should be ready for release by the end of November.
