We received an email from a SketchUp user who liked a rendering of a Rhino Model using Brazil better than the renderings he saw of SketchUp models.
Here is the rendering he sent as an example:
We have often wondered if it is the Nurbs Geometry in Rhino which makes good renderings - or just the skill of the Rhino users. So we would like to see what some SketchUp users can do with a similar model using the various rendering packages available wit SketchUp.
Lets use this model as a base:

Put something behind it or in the sky for reflection and see what you can do.
Render it with your favorite rendering package, post the results here, and I will place them in the Sample Renderings
section of SketchUpRendering.com
Besides seeing samples of various rendering packages, the purpose of this thread and/or the SketchUpRendering.com site, where we will post these images, is to show SketchUp users the value of using add-on rendering packages to improve the quality and value of SketchUp models and images for internal or client presentations.
It is OK to change materials, backgrounds, lights, and other rendering settings – but do not add or change other geometry to the car – unless there is something wrong with the original model.
