Sun Position Override Tool
1. By using the sun position override tool, you can position the sun anywhere you like independent of the SketchUp shadow settings.
2. This is a view-based tool so the position is relative to your current camera view.
3. Just click the 'Set Sun Position' button and click anywhere in the SketchUp viewport.
4. Use this tool in combination with the SketchUp 'Position Camera' tool to control the exact location of the sun and shadows.
