The Smart SketchUp Plugin For Scattering


Populate your scenes with UNLIMITED Vegetation with TOTAL CONTROL all while SAVING TIME and never leave SKETCHUP!

Skatter is Your Best Friend

From small carpets in a living room to large scale forests, Skatter is designed to help you achieve the final look fast and easy.

Render Unlimited Amounts of Objects

Through its "Render only" feature, Skatter sends all the scattering information directly to the render engines, bypassing Sketchup. That way, you keep a lightweight and responsive file while still being able to render huge amounts of objects.
