Sketchup to Archicad. Loses finishes in elevations but keep them in 3D. How do I fix that?

Not applicable
Hi everyone,

I've built some models in sketchup which I drag and drop in archicad, very easy. The problem is that the sketchup model keeps its finishes when I view it in 3D, but when I view it in my elevations archicad throws away the finishes and just display grey finishes to all planes. Any advise?


Elevations are vectorial views, where as the 3D window will most likely be showing the OpenGL view with textures / colours applied.

You can show colours in elevations (provided you have that set up in the elevation settings), but no textures.
