Three.js - Interactive 3D models on your web site

3D PDFs - especially those create with RPS 3D PDF or the 3D Design Studio - can be very good for letting clients see your models in 3D and zoom and rotate them. However, 3D PDF can only be displayed using Adobe Reader - and most browsers come now with other PDF readers installed - and cannot view 3D PDF models.

So we have added another popular 3D Format - Three.js - to our products so you can created Three.js models and embed them into your web site.

Here are a couple of samples you can take a look at.

Sample rendering of model with no setting changes

I was viewing this video - one of the first created by Dennis, and I remembered how neat it was that he was able to make a great rendering of a model he found on the 3D warehouse without making or changing any renderings settings - just pushing the green button and rendering.

New version of IRender nXt and ArielVision renders 2X faster!

We found some compiler settings which have made renderings run more than 2 times faster than previous versions on many models. This is very exciting because with faster renderings you can complete the rendering in less time, or let it run for more passes, and a better rendering, in the same amount of time

If your version is from before March 9, 2015 (earlier than OC09) download the latest version of IRender nXt or ArielVision from:


If you purchased or renewed your license in the past 12 months, you can use the latest version.

If your license is more than 12 months old, you will need to renew it to use the latest version.

(Licenses which start with IPNC..., ICNC..., or AVNC... or a higher code are valid for this new release)

If your license is older, you can renew it at:


nXtRender for AutoCAD users -  we will be releasing a faster version for AutoCAD today or tomorrow. Watch the downloads page for a version OC09 or later. Or return to this blog, or visit our nXtRender for AutoCAD forum:

Top View Trees for Landscapes

While working with RpTreeMaker we decided to have it also create Top View tree images which would be useful for Top View landscape renderings.

Top View Trees for Landscapes

Top View and Side View trees in layers
Top View Trees are special images created with RpTreeMaker which add detail to Top View Landscape renderings.

By storing 3D view images and Top View images in the same tree Component, in different layers it is easy to include your trees in multiple SketchUp views.

You can even automatically turn the tree layers on and off in your saved SketchUp view scenes.
