  1. Why can't you import SketchUp 2018 files in VW2019? SketchUp has had 2018 out for long enough that this should have been included.
  2. I've got over 60 different SketchUp models I need to import and due to resource conflicts, I have learned that it is best to import them all into one file, all at once. That said, the SketchUp import only processes one file at a time, needing the user to accept each import manually. It's at the pace of about one import every 2 minutes or so. I was wondering if there was a way to script this import process so that Vectorworks would just use and import the same settings for all the files, without the need to have a user accept each import every 2 minutes for 2 hours of time? Any help or suggestions are welcome, thanks.
  3. Hi all, I've used Vectorworks for many years, but only to do 2D work (plans, sections, construction drawings etc.) and am pretty confident at it (at least the bits that I use!). I would like to start using it for 3D. At the moment I use SketchUp to create a model, then Photoshop for post-processing. I would probably stick to Photoshop for some work, but make use of much better rendering within VW. I am hoping that there are people in the same position as me who have some advice, tips and resources to share, as I pretty much plan to teach myself, and would like this to be in as efficient a way as possible. Are there things you always wished you knew? Have you found any amazing blog posts or tutorials? Are there libraries of textures or objects that you'd recommend? All advice would be appreciated - I have a good project to learn on, and excited to get started! Thanks! Fi
  4. Hi, Having issues importing sketchup files into vw 2017 SP2. I've attempted importing files from sketchup 2015 through 2017 to no avail. I'm aware of the existing issue with importing Sketchup2017 files into VW2017, but from everything I've read downsaving should do the the trick. However, I keep getting the same error message over and over telling me that my file is corrupt or from an unrecognized version of sketchup regardless of if I've saved downsaved it. This is across multiple files as well. The original file I was trying to convert was about 64MB so I tried creating a little test file from scratch and had the same problems. Perhaps this in an issue with any drawing originating from Sketchup 2017? Thoughts?
  5. Hi all, 3dwarehouse is a goto spot for lots of symbols. I'm able to import great 3D Meshes - but I want to create flat 2D versions for hybrid symbols. I try all the "convert" commands - but nothing is quick. Does anyone have a good workflow for this? Thanks! Ethan

    sketchup model in top/ plan

    I imported a sketchup model into VW. When I look at top / plan view the skup model doesnt render nicely. Any advice on how to go about this? I tried auto hybrid and it didnt work. I also tried converting a copy to polygon but same result. Help appreciated. Thanks!
