What's New in SU Podium August 2017

We have updated 30 Podium Browser items with Podium Browser's advanced glass material. The improved material uses a more accurate shader which cannot be created from scratch within Podium's materials interface, and can only be applied to new models by color-picking from an existing Browser component, and applying it to your model with the paint bucket.

Check the following link for more information about how to apply the advanced glass material to your own models.

The items that have been updated are shown below.

We're still working tirelessly to expand the Podium Browser catalog. New additions in the second half of August include additional Ikea sofas, 20 outdoor furnishings, and a new set of Hinkley light fixtures.

We're adding new content to Podium Browser every month!  Podium Browser is still only $59.00 and includes over 16,000 render-ready components, with additional models, materials, and light fixtures being added every week. Read more about the speed and efficiency of Podium Browser here.
