 1001bit Pro Tools

1001shadows is a plugin for Trimble Sketchup that generates a series of shadow outlines from a start time to end time with user defined intervals.

With 1001Shadows, you can plot series of shadows between 2 designated time (eg. from 08:00 to 16:00) with fixed intervals. 
You can also pick on a point to analyse the duration in which the point will fall under the shadow of the building. 

1001Shadows is developed in collaboration with Takeshi Hashimoto.
