First, sorry for this late reply:

This plugin is compatible with SketchUp 2017-2021 for Windows and should be compatible with SketchUp 2017-2021 for macOS.

If this plugin crashes when you export model as glTF file, you can try to in order:

1. Open "Window > Ruby Console".
2. Copy-paste below code:

Code: Select all
PBR::GlTF.export


3. Press enter to execute above code.
4. Send me a screenshot.

Hi. From a month, more or less, I got a popup when SU starts that said something about a newer version 4.2.6 from this plugin and opens this SketchUcation page when message accepted. But I see no news here about newer releases of this plugin. Does anybody here tell me what's wrong?

Hi Pablo.

4.2.6 ? :? I'm working on the 2.x version of the PBR plugin but the latest public version available at SketchUcation is 1.5.9.

Hi Samuel,

First thanks for this great plugin (just like all of your other goodies).

Some questions about the materials:
-what is the difference between the heightfield map and the normal map features ?
- how to get an occlusion map based on a jpg texture ?

I'm starting some tests and amazed with the results ;-)


Thanks for your time.

That's very kind! :)

Didier Bur wrote:Some questions about the materials:

The height map in the PBR 1.x plugin is a parallax occlusion map. The height map is a grayscale image which simulates a "deep relief". You can use a displacement map from Poly Haven (for example) as a height map. Whereas the normal map encodes the "bas-relief" in the RGB channels of an image...

Didier Bur wrote:- how to get an occlusion map based on a jpg texture ?


Handmade or automatic? Some softwares can autogenerate an [ambient] occlusion map from a diffuse texture...

Didier Bur wrote:I'm starting some tests and amazed with the results ;-)


Stay tuned ;) The PBR 2.x plugin should reach photorealism.

Hi Samuel,

Thanks for your answers.
I'm curious to know why each time I launch Sketchup I get the message:

version PBR.jpg


It loads the Web page where I can dowload version 1.5.9. :o
Where can I find version 4.2.6 ?

Best regards,
