What is SketchUp and Skelion?

This online training program is designed to train you in rendering 3D models of solar plants and layouts, using SketchUp and Skelion. In this online training program on how to use SketchUp for solar, you not only strengthen your fundamentals of understanding client requirements and carrying out virtual site assessments, but also learn to model complex solar system designs and analyse shading reports.

SketchUp is a 3D modeling application that lets solar designers create 2D and 3D models. Sketchup is a program used for a wide range of 3D modeling projects like architectural, interior design, landscape architecture, solar PV power plants, and video game design, to name a few of its uses.

SketchUp has found a lot of success and popularity amongst solar PV designers, assisting them in making 3D model mockups of their solar power plants. This helps them to assess shading and analyze site data, while seamlessly using it along with other design simulation software. 

SketchUp by itself is mainly a 3D modeling tool with no real solar-specific applications. To allow SketchUp to help you create 3D models of solar power plants and generate reports, a plug-in called Skelion is to be used.

Skelion is a downloadable plug-in that can help you design residential solar installations or ground-mounted power plants. The industry-wide recognized combination of SketchUp and Skelion, allows you to reduce the cost of solar design by saving hours of modeling time and help you in making beautiful and professional presentations and proposals.
