2021 - Happy New Year!

Like everyone else, at Render Plus Software we're looking forward to getting back to "normal" during 2021.  We want to thank you for your patronage which enables us to continue to invest in our products and provide our renowned support.  The success of our business depends on the success of your businesses, and our daily interactions with you help us keep a pulse on how things are going and how we can better assist you in the future. 

If you have a success story that your renderings helped enable, let us know via Render Plus Support Email as we are interested in sharing your experience via a short case study.

Join the Beta Program for our Next Generation SketchUp Renderer!

We will shortly be starting to Beta test our new, high speed, high quality, easy to use SketchUp rendering extension.   We are looking for input from a small active group of enthusiastic participants to help us validate and improve this new solution.  If you use SketchUp and would like to participate please contact us via Render Plus Support Email.  We are planning to start the program around January 15th, so we’ll quickly let you know if you’ve been selected.  

As a committed Beta test participant who provides the simple, timely input we will request, you will receive either a period of free access or discount (based on your level of participation) when the product is launched.  Again, please contact us via Render Plus Support Email if you are interested in participating!

SketchUp 2021 Compatibility

All of our extensions are compatible with SketchUp 2021 (they work with all versions of SketchUp from 8 through 2021), so if you've upgraded or plan to upgrade please visit our website to determine your Render Plus license status as you may need to upgrade that also. 

If you're not sure about the status of your license or have questions, email us Render Plus Support Email
