I have a few hundreds of SketchUp files which are scenes comprised of several other 3d models, for example, imagine a scene with a building, a car and a few trees. I’d like to extract the building out of this scene. Do you have any suggestions to automate this process? For example, is there a way to export all the models used in a scene into separate files, i.e., a building file, a car file, and a few tree files, for the case of the previous example?
I am more of a programmer than a designer. I know that there is a Ruby API, but I have not worked with it so I don’t know its capabilities. I have not worked with SketchUp either, so I don’t know if the information I am looking for are even preserved.
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
