Ah! Thank you! Ok, this opens a new avenue of investigation. I’ll check it out and report back.
Thanks also for the screen recording of the FBX converter, will check that out too.
As way of feedback to anyone working in the 3D industry, the single biggest obstacle to me buying anything from anybody are the chronic problems I routinely have (90% of the time or more) simply moving a file from one place to another. Not doing fancy expert work or anything like that, just moving a file from point A to point B.
Not referring to SketchUp specifically here, but every 3D situation I’ve experienced, everything everywhere. There must be thousands upon thousands of people who hit this obstacle, can’t get over it, give up, and never become customers. Such a waste…
Ok, tried DAE, but it looks like I’d need to upgrade to export in that format. Welcome a correction if that’s wrong.
Best I can tell, there’s no way in the free version to get anything I create out of Sketchup. If that’s true, well, at least I figured all this out in only 24 hours, and now I know about Sketchup so maybe that will come in handy someday.
For what it’s worth, the ease at which I could almost immediately begin doing fun things in Sketchup is quite impressive, and I’m not at all easy to please in that department, to put it mildly. So, good job guys, it’s a thing of beauty, and I’ll regret not exploring it further.
