NextLimit Maxwell for SketchUp
NextLimit Maxwell for SketchUp is an independent package that contains its own rendering engine designed and integrated completely into SketchUp.

Wherever appropriate, unnecessary items have been optimized, leaving what was intended to be a very simple and straightforward, yet complete interface for Maxwell Render from within SketchUp. Maxwell SketchUp provides seamless integration with SketchUp. This product has been designed to display in SketchUp with the Maxwell toolbar.
