V-Ray for SketchUp eBook for Designers,
Let’s Talk About 3d Art

Long Story Short: I wrote an entire book about V-Ray for SketchUp. Why? Because I have a lot of knowledge that I wanted to share with the world. Legit, right?


As an architect, I have found SketchUp as a super comfortable 3D platform, in which everything can be modeled extremely quick. Undoubtedly one of the best 3d platforms available. Yes, there are obvious drawbacks too, but creating 3d artwork is what prompted me to use SketchUp so I became what is known as a “power user” using a lot of plugins in so many different ways. I got to know it so deeply, that one day I’ve issued my first SketchUp Pro textbook.

Then there was a turning point when V-Ray for SketchUp enters the picture (literally).

It was tremendous. Each simple 3d model becomes a fully realistic and attractive visualization. V-Ray for SketchUp allows me as a 3d artist and architect to communicate my projects in a unique professional matter.
Very often I owe this ability to be able to apply architectural competitions and get the best out of my designs, which means that as an architect, I cannot settle for the raw SketchUp model but have to add V-Ray to my final art.

Ever since I gained tremendous knowledge, skill, and technique perfecting my approach to visualization in general.


My general approach is divided into two different paths: the objective track — realism, and the subjective track — digital art. Combining these two paths allows for ab amazing, realistic 3d renderings but also tends to be one that can be classified as art.

So I wrote a book.

Yes, a whole book, 400+ A4 pages packed ebook. Initially, it was composed in Hebrew, my native language but from that point forward, it was a very short path to get the book translated to suit the English language.

The book is now available on a dedicated website at vfsbook.com and now published to the world! It’s a very exciting move to share my knowledge with the entire world, and I’m sure that as an architect and as a user, I’ve been able to improve tens of thousands of users on their rendering results.

It’s an amazing feeling! I was happy to help, even in a commercially driven project, so other junior 3d artists can achieve great results in a short time, getting their learning curve as efficient as possible.
