ArchiCAD 11 and Google Earth

Anonymous
Not applicable
I am having issues placing my models in Google Earth. I can vaguely see some windows of my model on GE, but little else.

I have also tried merging the GE location into my ArchiCAD drawing. The GE object camera shows on the 3D view, but no image shows, other than the original model.

Currently working in ArchiCAD 11, using the AC11 add on, and Google Earth 6.0.3, on Windows XP.

Anyone come across this type of problem before?

OK, I have tried uninstalling GE6 and going back to GE5, this has given slightly more promising results, but ultimately the 3D model is still transparent, with only vague outlines showing. I have tried loading up two older still versions of GE4, but they do not seem to focus in on the terrain for some reason.

Can anyone state a version of GE that has worked for them in AC11?

Thanks

OK fixed it.

for AC11 you must run a version of GE4. GE5 or GE6 will not work.

When I loaded GE4 back on, I could not focus in on the terrain, un-check the box "Primary Database", in the Google E side bar, and it focuses in.

Amazing!
