SU model to Vectorworks (and vice versa)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


I use VW but two of my colleagues will be modelling in Sketchup.

Are there any tips on workflow? Ie guidelines on how to best export and import?

In the past I have found models I've imported in VW from SU to be very fragmented and need a lot of cleaning up.


The person I'm working for will model in Sketchup and then ask me to import the model into VW to produce working drawings

He'll also want to make changes to the model (in VW) and then also texture and light for rough renders.

Then pass the model back into SU


Is this possible? or better to just transfer it once from SU to VW.

Any tips on how I can save hours remodelling / fixing up the model so it is editable in VW?


much thanks,
