V-Ray 2.0 for SketchUp: End of support

V-Ray Next for SketchUp will be released soon. With the official release of this new version, Chaos Group will discontinue technical help and updates for V-Ray 2.0 for SketchUp. After the release you will:

  • not have on-demand access to V-Ray 2.0 for SketchUp builds
  • no longer have assisted technical support from Chaos Group
  • receive no software updates
  • not be eligible for upgrade to V-Ray Next for SketchUp

….so what’s Next?

Now is the perfect time to upgrade. Choose one of the options below and you’ll continue to get Chaos Group’s first-class technical and operations support, access to future updates and upgrades — and a shiny new version of V-Ray.

Switch to an Annual License

Chaos Group subscription model is packed with benefits, including:

  • Cost-effectiveness and simplified scalability
  • Low initial cost, which is great for freelancers, small and medium businesses
  • Free minor updates and major upgrades released during the license validity period
  • Free technical and operations support
Upgrade to V-Ray 3.0 for SketchUp before V-Ray Next for SketchUp is release

If the perpetual licensing model suits your needs, it may be wise to upgrade to V-Ray 3.0 for SketchUp before the official release. With this option, you’ll keep your access to Chaos Group’s technical support and you can purchase an upgrade to V-Ray Next for SketchUp when needed.

McNeel Rhino 6 & V-Ray for Rhino Update are Now Available

McNeel’s Rhino 6 and Chaos Group’s compatible V-Ray for Rhino upgrade are now available. We’ve gathered below a few of Rhino 6’s latest features:

  • Grasshopper – Grasshopper is now a full-fledged part of rhino and provides the solid foundation of many incredible third-party components ranging from environmental analysis to robotic control.
  • Presentation – McNeel improved Rhino with the aim of helping you present your work: be it “quick and dirty” or “high-res glossy”. With major changes to Rendering, Materials, or just plain capturing the viewport, it’s now easier and faster to present, discuss, make decisions, and iterate.
  • Display – Rhino’s new display pipeline is faster, more stable, and uses features found on modern graphics hardware, like GPU sensitive shaders and memory optimizations. This results in fewer GPU-specific display glitches and more consistent, beautiful, and frequent frames, even with large models. In some conditions, display speed can be up to 300% faster.
  • Documentation – McNeel has refined the documentation workflow; from a completely reworked annotation-style interface, to better DWG support, and Rich Text throughout. It’s now easier to convey accurately and clearly the what and the how of your design.
  • Licensing & Administration – Rhino is now easier to install, license, and configure. There’s a great new option to license Rhino using the Cloud Zoo.

 

Still interested in Rhino 5? Don’t worry they’re still available. Interested in upgrading or getting a new Rhino 6 license? Want to upgrade your V-Ray for Rhino seat? Contact us at info@microsolresources.com today!

V-Ray for Rhino The latest V-Ray for Rhino now supports Rhino 6.2 and above. Chaos Group has also implemented overall improvements to make your rendering workflow faster, smoother and more productive.
