I’m trying to export a model I’ve drawn in SketchUp to Google Earth but there’s a few things that need to happen:
First of all, the model is of a satellite that is 35,790km above sea level and I want to visualize it on Google Earth to see that the views would be like of the satellite and of planet Earth below.
How can I do this? I’ve geo-located the model within Sketchup to the exact point above Earth I’d like the satellite to be in geosynchronous orbit with Earth, but the ‘Preview Model in Google Earth’ button is greyed out. I realize I would also need to move the model the 35,790km above the origin point so that once I am able to export it to Google Earth, it would be located at the right distance from Earth.
How can I do this?
