Export to pdf problem

When I export these 3D views (Sheet HOA 8) to a PDF, they acquire some ugly, gratuitous black lines, both within the models and at the edges. It happens with either an Adobe or Microsoft PDF. What’s up with that? Is it problem with the recent update?
Is it a SketchUp settings problem? Help!

On which page are you seeing these lines? Can you do a screenshot from the PDF and highlight those lines?

Yes, the update will override the viewport output to hybrid. If you uncheck the override box in the settings it will export as a raster and the lines won’t show up.


On the views on Sheet HOA 8. I didn’t highlight them all, but I’m sure you get the idea.

As @nmason pointed out, unticking the box he showed in his screenshot will take care of that.

BTW, I had my usual poke around in that SketchUp file and found this:

Incorrect tag usage which can create problems for you as you work through your modeling and documentation.

And a lot of unused stuff to purge.

That reduced the one SketchUp file by 84%.

I also see there’s some unused references in the LayOut file that ought to be purged.



That did the trick. Thanks. You guys are treasures!
And I’ll clean up my model. I’ll hate it, but I’ll do it.

It takes literally less than 20 seconds to purge your file.

There’s a plugin called default layer geometry from TIG that moves all the faces and edges in the model to the “untagged” Tag.
