SketchUp® users in all fields depend on V-Ray® as a quick, easy and cost-efficient way to render their most cutting-edge images. Developed by the Chaos Group, V-Ray for SketchUp works with Trimble’s SketchUp, one of the most popular 3D modeling tools available today. FREE UPGRADE TO V-RAY 3.x – All V-Ray 2 for SketchUp full seats, purchased after November 1, 2015 qualify for a free upgrade to V-Ray 3.x. This free upgrade includes one workstation license plus one render node.Online-based licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed with the developer. Online licensing is fast and secure, and customers will be able to access their new software faster and may be accessed from multiple locations using your Online log on. Online licensing requires a stable, uninterrupted internet connection. It is possible to borrow licenses and use them completely offline for a limited time – 14 days (2 weeks). When this period is over, an internet connection is required to renew offline usage of the licenses.

Dongles will continue to be an option for V-Ray 3 for 3ds SketchUp customers who prefer hardware-based licenses. Dongle licensing remains unchanged: add $35 + shipping for a dongle.
