HI All forgive me for my ignorance I am a new user . I have been using Sketchup for some time now and have it mastered but I am bummed by the documentation side. I am now using Archicad (if you could call it using) and imported a very simple Sketchup model and all of the faces (walls and roof are not co-planer.
Its almost as if the import has pushed the top over and left the bottom where it was.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks for the input I will try it
I wanted to import several doors that I already have drawn into archicad and use them to show my clients how that actual product will look on their house.
I know when i render the model in archicad it works fine. is it normal for this to happen.
I watched a video made my Archicad that shows import of Sketchup models without this issue. I have 24 days left of my trial. I guess I may have to consider another product, Its a shame as Archicad is easier to use than revit.
I would also like to import several jobs I have at design stage and trace over but it is very hectic with all of these lines....
I know for sure the skethcup models faces are in plane. It appears as though Archicad import is skewing the model
I must admit that the video I watched was in Archicad 11, Maybe I should try get a copy of Archicad 11 and then export and put in 15. Is that possible?
Thanks for the advice and please forgive my lack of knowledge. I am learning reasonably fast but always get a few small problems. I exported from Sketchup as a 3ds file but when I go to import the file there is no 3ds option. I am guess I have to down load a plug in? I will check on line. Can you let me know if I am overlooking something?
TMA_80 you are a good man
It works well with the add on. I have moved past that a fair way and now I have been importing windows. I would like to be able to import a window and have it cut a hole in the wall. From what I understand this requires GDL coding. can any one tell me where I can find the information required to get these wheels in motion
I would like to convert my entire library. I have had some help form Shrinivaz but he is not sure of the best way to go.
Thanks again for all of your help
