Renamed the kmz root to a zip

Seriously if anyone knows what to do, I will literally come around your house and have sex with you.

Im really stuck if I cant import this file.

I have the latest FBX plugin, and also one called colladamax 2009 (which i dont know how to initialise?).

No offense Rob, but I'll skip on the sex.

What other export options do you have in Sketch Up? OBJ? 3DS? Try those and see what happens.

Ok well the basic version of sketch up is SHIT, and doesnt allow you to export 3DS files...the PRO version however does, so panic over!

don't export edges it'll take ages, create a huge file and give you duplicates of every object in the scene.

go to export>options>untick export edges.
