I have made something in sketch up but dont know how, i think it needs to be exported into ASE or something but have no idea how to do that and through my searches i saw that some said to export the google file to blender, then from blender to ASE, but that keeps failing. i have run out of ideas thus i am consulting you lot XD

Many many thanks

Hi Lewis,

Here's what you need to do to get from Sketchup to Muvizu.

First of all take a look at these tutorials.

The .ase exporter for sketchup can be obtained here

But before you try to import a sketchup model check your model over for unconnected lines or missing faces.

Make sure all the faces of the model are the right way around, ie white side facing out.

Make sure that each part of your model is a 'closed' section, in that it has a top bottom and sides.

make sure you don't have flat planes placed against each other (like sheets of paper) as this makes the model warp in Muvizu.

Then use the eraser tool with the shift key held down to smooth away all the edges of your model.

Make sure your model is painted inside and out.

And finally explode your model into one model, get rid of all groups and components, so that it is one model.

You can find more info in this thread here

And if you have any problems just give a yell and I'll be glad to help.
