Working with renders
You have several options after making your model. You can work straight from Sketchup itself, which has some limited styling options, but I prefer to save time painting shadows and reflections and render out my models. It’s not really important which renderer you use, but I’m currently enjoying Keyshot, since it’s super fast to set up and work with. This render just involved dragging the Sketchup file with all the default materials into Keyshot, turning up the quality and taking a screenshot! You can see my use of repeating components here clearly, before painting over them.
