 SU Podium for SketchUp 2017 is now available

SU Podium version 2.5.601 is the only build that will work SU 2017, so please download the update if you're moving to SketchUp 2017.

  • Note about Podium Styles: Trimble changed the folder that contains SketchUp styles for both Windows and Mac, but the Podium Styles installation path has not yet been updated in v2.5.601. If you'd like to use Podium Styles, you will need to move them manually; please see the styles documentation for the correct file path.
  • Note about 4K monitors: If you are using an HD or 4K monitor in Windows with SU2017, you may notice that the fonts in SU Podium Options, Materials Properties and PLS UI are a bit too big for the dialog box. We are working on updating this so these dialog boxes will look better for HD and 4K monitor users.

Podium Browser Render Contest

Submissions are now closed for the Podium Browser render contest. We're absolutely thrilled that so many (68!) of you took the time to create images. To all who entered we say thanks and very well done!

The field was large and the competition fierce, so our judges will need a few days to look at submissions, discuss, and deliberate, but we'll have an announcement for you as soon as possible! In the meantime, we invite you to please take a look at the excellent work our users submitted:
