Sketchup Imports

Recommended Posts

I am running 12.5.3 on a PC. What versions of SKP are supported? I have been trying to import some items from skp.6 and nothing shows up. Do I need to rerun the 12.5.3 updater?

Thanks,

Bob Hunter

Thanks Ray and Pat. I was searching the board for answers, and found out exactly that. So, I DLed skp and resaved the symbols as skp 5.

While we're here, on a different tack: It seems that circumstances are moving me away from entertainment design into architectural- (i.e. roadways and parking lots) I found VW spotlight to be a little lacking in this area, so in my searches, I found a program called DIALux. It's for exactly this, but it's a little dated; I'm finding IES files to plug into it, so I should be able to make it work. Is Arch. or Designer able to do this? Is there a "modern" CAD that deals with this area?

Thanks,

Bob Hunter

Hi

Perhaps this is a stupid question, but how do I import a sketchup file? I go to File>Import>, but I don't see .skp files available. I use Sketchup Pro to convert to DWG and import that way.

Thanks

I have "Import SketchUp" in my workspace and nothing is imported. Will this only work on V5 or V6? I know there was a limitation on VW12.5.

Thanks

Export the file to SU 6; currently VW 2009 does not support SU7.
