Sunhours • Visualise Sunlight Hours in SketchUp • Free

SunHours is a free plugin for Sketchup for visualising sunlight data. The tool lets you fit a grid of desired density to any face or surface and then run an solar analysis on that grid. Using SketchUp's built-in capacity to calculate shadows, SunHours allows you to run a simulation over any time period to see how many hours grid points are in direct sunlight. The output is displayed as a coloring of the grid (which can also be customized) and can be exported as a .CSV file.
