SU Podium Version 2.x plug-ins and downloads
Installing the .rbz files for the free plug-ins
Should I download the .rbz file or the Zipped .rbz file? It depends on what Browser you are using.
There are several SketchUp .rbz file plug-ins on this page. Each one has a .rbz download link and a zipped. rbz download link. Which one should you download before installing from inside SketchUp?
If you use Internet Explorer or Safari as your browser, it's best to download the Zipped .rbz file. Then unpack the zipped file and you will obtain the original .rbz file.
If you are using FireFox or Chrome, download the .rbz file but make sure you context click on the download link and choose Save Link as...
Download and Installing the .rbz file directly (not the zipped .rbz versions)

Omni Grid is a plug-in for SU Podium V2 or for Podium Walker that allows you to create a grid of point lights or omni lights above or below a planar surface (SketchUp face). By creating a grid of omni lights Omni Grid creates a relatively even source of light over a wide space. It is best for interior rendering. A superior even source of light is LEM in SU Podium V2.
