Sketch Up to Max
show user profile  4arc
Hey guys,

started playing around with importing sketch up models (as a .3ds) into max8 but have been having some problems. firstly, althought the materials come in from sketch up ok, they loose their texture! have been having trouble getting the images to load. also the model comes in as one mesh and can only apply one material which covers the entire mesh?

thanks,

4arc

Don't use 3ds for export/importing process. It's obsolete. Either use obj or fbx or anything else than 3ds. The free version of sketchup has limited exporting options I suppose. Back then I use blender to sketchup import/export script to get the models from sketchup. Besides, sketchup material and rendering don't quite provide complete tool. You should've model things inside sketchup and do finishing on other software.

cheers mate
