Import from Sketchup

Question

I made a model of a wooden arbor in Sketchup that I want to import into VW to do detail construction drawings. I have exported the model from Sketchup as a dwg drawings, and imported it into a new VW file. If I import as 3D only, I get a model that I can rotate and view from different angles. If I import it as 2D and 3D, then the model seems to be frozen in plan view. The flyover tool will not rotate the model and changing views under the Standard Views menu does not change the view ? it remains in plan view.

If I import this file as 2D and 3D, how do I switch to the 3D mode?

Why export the skp as a dwg?

You can import sketchup directly into vectorworks. The textures won't make the trip, but I think everything else will...

If you don't have the designer series, you cannot import Sketchup directly into Vectorworks. You have to export from Sketchup to a dwg and then import the dwg.
