Thanks Blanka, this helps a little but still leaves much work to do in a cad program after export, especially if you have a complex layer structure in the model. And if you’re exporting multiple views, you have to perform the task over and over. If sketchup can’t export a view that retains layer structure and color, maintains origin and outputs in high quality DWG, then sketchup isn’t a professional tool. I do almost all of my exhibit and theatrical design work in sketchup and layout. But when I have to export to consultants, my speedy workflow draws to a crawl. I wish trimble would take this issue seriously.
