Creating .txt from Sketchup 2015


#1

Can anyone help with a solution to export .txt files from Sketchup 2015 for use in another program. I was able to do this in V4 with a 3rd party plugin but can’t find something suitable for 2015.

I have no idea what content you expect in the .txt file, but have you looked at File->Generate Report?

Just for fun I took a simple (41kb) SketchUp 15 file changed the extension from skp to txt and got thousands of lines of chinese characters. A few readable (english) words but the rest was not:

I hope it was fun, because otherwise it is nonsense :stuck_out_tongue: A sketchup file is binary and has no direct interpretation as characters!
