Developing Importer for .SHP (or SHX) to SketchUp

Try increasing the scale to some ridiculous number like 100000 and see if it does anything different. Make sure you use the “Zoom Extents” to step back and view the results.

If you can provide an example of the errors you are getting in the console, that would be helpful as well.

Thanks, that definitely helped. Most of the items are being imported now. The only thing I have to figure out now is how to get the height properly scaled when I want a height parameter.

Here is the Ruby console I’m getting when I run the importer:

Hi Jim,

I would like to download this extension, but when I try to open the file it says that there is no app associated with the file. Am I doing something wrong?
