Extension Installation

The VirVil extension SketchUp can be installed into SketchUp using the menu item Window->Extension Manager within SketchUp. Under the Extensions item select the Install Extensions button. Select the wsa_virvil.rbz file and this will install all the necessary files to run the VirVil extension. For more detail on the installation process visit https://help.sketchup.com/en/extension-warehouse/adding-extensions-sketchup

The plugin is self contained and requires no other files to function. If you require more details on how to run the model check the documentation section.

Please note that if you download the extension with Internet Explorer it will change the file type from ".rbz" to ".zip". You will need to rename it before installing the extension.
