Autocad and Sketchup Model Views


#1

I’m trying to migrate an autocad 3d view into sketchup. I need an exact match for rendering purposes. Any takers?


#2

In SketchUp, you can bring up an undocumented Camera dialog as seen in the image. If you can find the same parameters in AutoCad, then maybe you can copy/paste them over.

Sketchup.send_action(10624) 


#3

If it is just the view (as opposed tot he actual file) you could use Photo Match to model a Sketchup representation of that exact image.


#4

You can also define cameras/views in AutoCAD and then import this model into SketchUp. I think it should work.

PS. I will try to do it tomorrow at work.


#5

I have tried my method, and everything is working. You can save views in Autocad and import dwg file into SketchUp. Imported file will have saved views as scenes in SketchUp.


#6

That is probably how to properly do what I am trying to do, but I can’t figure out all those variables.


#7

The views/scenes are not exactly the same in the two models, acad and sketchup.


#8

Try to add camera with “camera” command. I think there is a problem with camera distortions, similar problem is in Revit and 3ds max, you can import only camera position.

I tried to use simple view from camera without any additional settings/modifications and it’s working.
