The new, fast, Batch Extractor, extracts your SketchUp Geometry directly inside of the IRender Batch window, rather than inside SketchUp using Ruby.
Extract Time Inprovements
Our tests had shown that is is 5, 10 or even 20 times faster for extracting the geometry than our old Ruby extractor. (The bigger the model, the more improvement you will see.)
It is currently available in Beta Test mode in the latest versions of IRender nXt , ArielVision and 3D Design Studio which you can download here Downloads Page.
Improved Extraction Times Only
Your rendering times, (after extraction), will be the same.
But the Batch Extractor can greatly improve the time spent before the rendering passes start.
After downloading the latest version of the SketchUp Extension, bring up the Render Setup Tab, and check "Use external extractor"
