Import Sketchup


Recommended Posts


Do a 'File > Save As' from SketchUp and simply pull down an older SketchUp version such as v7 (which works with your Vw2010). Many of the files available on the 3dWarehouse are v8 only, so you'll need to get used to doing this.

You should know that you won't get any textures if you import SketchUp files into Vw via 'File > Import Sketchup'. If you want the SketchUp textures you need to export the file to 3DS format from SketchUp. Please refer to this other post I wrote on how to properly do this: Re: Help with rendering 3DS, DWG and SketchUp files

I never use the 'Import SketchUp' function because I find that is so limited. I import 3DS files instead.
