Press Release

Spring 2022 Update

Berlin (Germany), April 6, 2022: German digital botany software company Laubwerk announces the release of the Laubwerk Player Plugin 1.0.41 for use with Laubwerk Plants Kits. Laubwerk Plants Kits are collections of beautiful, render-ready 3D plants explicitly created for architects, CG, and VFX artists. Available for SketchUp, Maya, 3ds Max, and Cinema 4D.

Omri Ron ( is a Laubwerk with SketchUp & V-Ray user and an architect from Tel Aviv, Israel, specializing in residential building. He recently told us what he loves about Laubwerk: “As an architect - Laubwerk is a great tool for me. Thanks to the large range of trees in Laubwerk – I can always find the species of the tree that exist next to the buildings I plan or the one I want to plant there in the future. Laubwerk helps us produce beautiful, fast and impressive renders and get new customers and new projects to the office. In most renderings – Laubwerk makes all the difference and for me it's a major game changer with V-Ray for SketchUp."

Highlights of the Laubwerk Player 1.0.41 update include:

  • Added support for SketchUp 2022 with native Apple M1 processor support
  • Added support for Autodesk 3ds Max 2023
