Sketchup import

Postby Sus » Tue 30 Aug 2011 13:39

Sketchup is an extremely easy 2D and 3D modeler.
I am trying to import some 2D clipart I made from Sketchup into PL32.
Format DXF and SVG import doesn't work in my PL32 v15.50
Did anyone have success importing sketchup vectorial output in any PL32 version ?

Maybe Sketchup has a PDF (ver. 1.3) export function? PDF import in PL usually works very well. I've also successfully converted svg files to pdfs using Inkscape.

Cheers

Solved it by using
http://www.guitar-list.com/files/skp_to_dxf.rb to export a polylines DXF and
http://www.opendesign.com/teigha_file_converter to turn it into a 2010 ASCII DXF
that is accepted by PL32.
PL32 uses transparent color by default so you have to change this to see your imported drawing.
To avoid disturbing aliasing when converting to RGB the figure should be bigger than 300cm in Sketchup.

Sketchup is one of the best 2D and D modeler out there! I was wondering whether there was any way by which I could import it to Photoline 32 version. I am so glad to see that you managed to get it done using the two links here which does the exporting and importing.
