Sketchup Blog - News and Notes from the Sketchup folks

So that's what the EPX exporter is for!

When it comes to rendering their models for presentation, a lot of designers make a beeline for photorealism. That's all fine and well, but there are definitely times (and clients) which call for decidedly softer measures. In the realm of softer, more nuanced forms of digital representation, it's hard to beat Piranesi. In the software maker's own words:

Piranesi’s unique ‘3D painting’ technology allows you to rapidly add paint and textures without needing to create masks, and the range of nearly 3000 ready-to-use textures, images and cutouts supplied free on the product DVD enable you to apply a wealth of effects to your illustrations, tailoring them to suit a house style or a client’s brand positioning.

If you have SketchUp Pro, you can export views of your model as EPIX files which you can open directly in Piranesi. To celebrate the launch of version 5 for Mac (version 5 for Windows came out several months ago), Informatix Software is offering SketchUp Blog readers a 20% discount off the price of Piranesi for either operating system. All you have to do is use the voucher code SKUP0308 at the Piranesi online store before March 31st, 2008.

Here's a neat YouTube video that demonstrates Piranesi 5 in all its glory:

Update The 20% discount has been extended through the end of March. Please note the new voucher code in the post, above (SKUP0308).

we (architectural office) love piranesi. it's really useful when adding plants in perspective and has a much larger, better looking selection that sketchup. i've been using it for a year or so now. definitely worth a try.
