Podium Browser free vs. paid content

Limited free content: When you install SU Podium or Podium Browser 2020, you gain access to around 950 free Podium Browser items; typically one or two in most categories.

Click "Show only free files" to if you only want to view the free content. Free content includes:

  • Over 300 render ready light fixture components in the ceiling, floor, street, table, and wall categories.
  • A large collection of 2D face me plants in the 2D plants and 2D trees categories.
  • One or two Podium materials from each Material category.
  • 3D car models with Podium render ready materials.
  • One item in most other categories, including kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room, etc.

The 3D light fixtures come with SU Podium V2 omni lights or LEMs and are render ready. This means all you need to do is click and drop the light fixtures into your SketchUp model, position the light fixture and it’s ready to render.

The 2D face-me plants and trees can be used for Podium renderings as well as for modeling in SketchUp.
