.skp SketchUp file import ?

Recommended Posts

Good Evening,

What are the parameters to be chosen in "Form-Z Free" to import sketchup skp file?
When I import a file skp Sketchup, NOTHING appears on the screen !?
Thank you.

I know fmz is working on a converter to import sketchup files.

FMZ pro  can bring in earlier versions of sketchup. You need to have SketchUp 2014 to export to an earlier versions as it seems you no longer have a choice to download earlier version from their 3D warehouse site.

only 32 bit FormZ on Windows can import Sketch Up. Also FormZ 7 does. You may ask support a download link to use it as temporary solution. At least for all v7 users are left this option.

Hi All,

 

We now have a SKP import plugin available for formZ 8, and we will be posting a test version of this later this week.   ;)

 

Until then, Import the file using formZ v6 or v7, save, and then open the file in v8.

Hello,

Important info: Using Form-Z Free under Win7 I found that the SketchUp file name, like the name of the directory in which it is located, CAN NOT CONTAIN ACCENT!
Best Regards

Hi Zorgloub,

 

Thanks for pointing out this issue.  In general it is best to use file names and paths using standard roman alpha / numeric characters, but we will see if characters with accents can be supported in the future.

 

We have also released the SKP 2015 plugin for formZ 8 (Pro and Jr) users for OS X.  More info on this can be found here:
