Maxwell for SketchUp is a self contained (standalone) package- it contains its own render engine designed for and fully integrated into SketchUp. No other application is launched when you render your scene, neither does it require export to any external application. So, besides the easy to use features of the plugin itself, there are no new interfaces to learn!
Maxwell Render 1.7 has been acclaimed as a landmark in the next-gen rendering technology, having produced the best photorealistic images to date and is the perfect solution for high-end rendering, especially in areas like architecture, industrial design, prototyping and 3D production. The key factors of Maxwell Render 1.7 are:
Maxwell Multilight : Don't re-render, adjust the lights in real-time! For the first time in the industry, it is possible to have unlimited variations of lighting from just one render. Things have never been this easy.
