V-Ray for SketchUp adds a number of geometry objects and tools for use with V-Ray. See the links below for more information.

Geometry objects and tools are available from a number of places in the user interface.

Each of the V-Ray geometry types has their respective icon. Clipper and Fur can be turned off/on by clicking on their respective icons.

Creation of geometry is available from two places in the Asset Editor: the Create Asset button and the Geometry category icon (top). If the Geometry category is empty, left-clicking the icon prompts you to create a new asset. Otherwise, it selects the category in which case, right-click opens the creation menu.

The Asset creation dropdown lists remain active when the Ctrl key is held, allowing the creation of multiple assets in quick succession. The Asset creation dropdown lists can be activated via the Create Asset button or the Asset Category icons. 

Creating a geometry item from the Asset Editor does not create it automatically into the viewport. You can find the item in SketchUp”s Components list and add it to the scene from there.

Virtual Geometry

V-Ray provides a number of tools that create geometry loaded in the scene at render time, which does not weigh to the scene.

Infinite Plane

The Infinite Plane is a virtual plane that always extends beyond the camera view. Find out more: Infinite Plane

Proxy Mesh

The Proxy Mesh imports geometry from an external mesh, which only loads the full details at render time. The geometry is not present in the scene and does not take any resources. Find out more: Proxy Mesh

Proxy Scene

The Proxy Scene imports a .vrscene file as a proxy, which is fully loaded only at render time. Find out more: Proxy Scene 

V-Ray Scene Importer

The V-Ray Scene Importer is a tool that lets you import a .vrscene file directly as an editable SketchUp model. Find out more: V-Ray Scene Importer 


Displacement mapping is a technique for adding detail to your scene geometry without having to model it first. Find out more: Displacement

A Reset option is provided in the context menu of each Number Slider. You can reset the slider value to the default one.Most numeric V-Ray parameters come with a slider to make fine-tuning easier. Each slider is set to a default range of recommended or commonly used values. If a value above that range is used the slider adapts by increasing its range accordingly (2x the input value) to maintain usability. If a value below the current slider range is used, the slider again adjusts its range by shrinking it to twice the amount of the input value.

The slider range does not indicate the parameter”s total minimum and maximum input values. The absolute minimum and maximum values of each parameter can be found by hovering over its spinbox.
