I just downloaded and installed Google earth connections, opened up the PDF manual and it says to import from 3D warehouse select "import from 3D warehouse" under file<google earth connections<import model from 3D warehouse. NO SUCH COMMAND EXISTS! the only options i have is "place google earth snapshot" or "google options". as far as i can see there are no options to turn this command on. so what gives? i'm running AC15 on a a Macbook Pro.

read this:

The automated data exchange between ArchiCAD 15 64-bit edition and Google Earth, Google Warehouse and SketchUp is not available due to technical limitations. Read more about the suggested manual communication workflow below:

So instead of not creating the add-on at all, Graphisoft made the Sketch-up import and supplied a work around.

Download here and install it;

And then File / File Special / Merge, choose the skp-file format and merge.

Alternatively, install (or you might already have it installed) ArchICAD 14 32 bit, import the GE data there, and merge the file into the 15 file.
