Exporting your model from SketchUp to Blender for Rendering!
In this video, we’re going to talk about how to take a model or a design from SketchUp and import it into Blender.
Note – these are pro exporters – however, I will talk about a way to do this with a free extension as well
This can be useful for a lot of things, including UV mapping, rendering, and more!
Different kinds of files give you different results.
Exporting as OBJ – Single Individual File – can’t edit individual objects
Look at the folder it creates
Notice – textures are separate
FREE OPTION – TT Quad Face Tools has an OBJ exporter!
Export as Collada – Maintains individual objects – useful if you’re going to be doing texture editing
Explode group first – otherwise you just get a dotted line
Making dotted lines go away – clear parent relationship, or just turn off relationship lines
Note – texture mapping gets weird if your SketchUp model isn’t quad mapped
