Hello! I am new here, so sorry if this is a dumb question.
I need to be able to visualize a model of a proposed new development in its context of surrounding buildings, the street, etc. Someone suggested cutting around a snapshot of a SU model and pasting it into a photo. Obviously, it would be impossible to ensure proper scale and angle.
The other two options I’ve seen are:
1- Importing the model into Google Earth.
2- Using the PlaceMaker plugin to bring OSM data into Sketchup.
It seems like the success of either of these options would depend on whether someone has already modeled and imported the surrounding buildings - and you’d have to trust that they modeled fairly accurately.
Am I missing anything? Are these the only ways to do this? I feel like this would be a more common application of SU, but am having trouble finding any examples online.
