Press Release

Laubwerk Player Update 1.0.28

Potsdam (Germany), March 25, 2019: German digital botany software company Laubwerk announces the release of version 1.0.28 of their successful player plugins for Laubwerk Plants Kits, a collection of render-ready, realistic 3D plants designed specifically for architects, CG, and VFX artists. All Laubwerk Plants Kits, including the Freebie Kit, now include the updated Laubwerk Player extension for SketchUp.

"The new SketchUp 2019 and V-Ray Next make designing and rendering even more of a pleasure. Now, Laubwerk is happy to join in, with a fresh bouquet of new performance and design improvements!" says Jesse Farber, software developer and SketchUp artist with the Laubwerk team.

"Working with plants is easier than ever before with the unstoppable new Laubwerk update for SketchUp, and the results are incredible! We love Laubwerk plants and have included them in several of our showcase projects," says Terry Pisel, head of Try Design, a multidisciplinary architectural visualization and rendering studio based in Scottsdale, AZ.

Highlights of the Plant Kit 1.0.28 update include exclusive improvements for our SketchUp users:

  • Added SketchUp Pro 2019 support
  • Added V-Ray Next for SketchUp support
  • Improved UI design and performance
  • Added macOS support for our Python extension.
  • Improved macOS installers with installer certification, and better detection of  installed applications.

Read the full list of improvements and fixes in the Release Notes. To get the updates, sign in to your Laubwerk Account page and download fresh installers for your Plants Kits (Note: you only need to download one Plants Kit, e.g. the Freebie, to update the SketchUp Player extension). Windows users are advised to uninstall previous versions of the Laubwerk Player plugin before running the new installer.

Laubwerk Plants Kits let architects, CG artists, and VFX specialists insert photo-realistic tree models into their 3D scenes quickly and easily, avoiding typical slowdowns from overly complicated parameters or excess memory usage. Laubwerk accomplishes this goal by giving users just the right amount of variation in their 3D tree models, without overwhelming them or their computers. Each tree model comes in three shapes, with three ages, and four seasons per shape. Adjustable detail level settings means that each tree looks great without slow navigation or long rendering times.
