Library Features


nXt Material Libraries

Solid wood material sculpted surface

There are more than 5,000 materials in the nXt Material library.

You can select any material from the library and place it on a SketchUp face to create a similar SketchUp material.

In many cases the SketchUp material is an approximation of the full fractal material which will be created when you render the model.

Download the Libraries and install them on your computer.

SketchUp Materials

SketchUp materials are automatically rendered with colors, textures and transparency.

SketchUp materials are automatically rendered as materials in IRender nXt.

You can set reflection and other rendering properties by right clicking on a face containing a materiel to set its rendering properties.

IRender Ready Content

IRender Ready content in 3D Warehouse

Our special collection in the Trimble SketchUp 3D Warehouse includes lights, mirrors and other components that are ready for use with IRender.

Lighting, Reflection and other render settings are already stored in the the components, making these components IRender Ready.

nXt Plant libraries

Juniper plant from plant library

About 30 new RpTreeMaker plants.

The are in addition to the more than 500 plants in the old AR3/AR4 plants which also work with IRender nXt.

These are 'fractal' plants - meaning that detail is relative to the resolution of your image. Each plant is generated differently which automatically creates a realistic effect when using multiple instances of the same plant.

Create SketchUp components to represent IRender nXt plants. These are then automatically rendered as 'fractal' plants.

These plants are also available from the 3D Warehouse: IRender Plants

RPC Objects

RPC people rendered with IRender nXt

Place RPC components in your SketchUp model which automatically render as RPC objects.

Arroway Textures

Room with Arroway Textures on walls and floor.

Arroway Textures is a supplier of high-res textures, which are used in many areas of digital visualization, e.g. architecture, design and art.

Arroway has made about 100 low-res versions of their textures available to IRender nXt users.

SketchUp Components

Place components in your model and render them

SketchUp components are automatically scaled and rotated properly in IRender.


Tree placed in SketchUp and rendered wirh nXtRender/IRender

Create custom, fractal, trees and plants. The tree is regenerated each time the tree is rendered. The more you are zoomed in, the more detail is included.

This is especially useful for close ups of trees and other plants.

For background trees, these is an option to render using the 2D tee image store in SketchUp, which can improve the rendering time when you have lots of background trees.
