Over 30,000 items are hosted on our web servers and can be downloaded directly into your SketchUp model from the Podium Browser extension. Easily search through over 20 categories and subcategories, then click the download icon on the thumbnail to place the item in your SketchUp scene.

Podium Browser content is render ready, meaning the items are already configured for rendering with either SU Podium or ProWalker GPU or PodiumWalker.

  • Realistic material properties - Reflection, transparency, bump, refraction, etc.
  • Light fixtures already contain Podium / ProWalker light sources (omni lights, spotlights, light emitting materials.)
  • Ready for realistic rendering without any additional preparation.

Using Podium Browser content can greatly speed up the design and visualization process with SketchUp, SU Podium, and ProWalker GPU. Fill your scene with high quality furnishings and add lifelike details in a fraction of the time it would take to model it all yourself.
