Faster Image Processing
  1. Make group for elements with the same shadow style (colour, outlines and opacity).
  2. Hide or remove unnecessary elements from the view (Elements that are interior or don’t cast a shadow).
  3. Simplify your massing geometry.

Do not change camera position or edit elements in SketchUp while exporting.

Area Calculation

To generate a shadow area calculation, please ensure the following:

  • The view is Top and orthographic/parallel projection.
  • The site is fully contained within the view.
