I tried everything by saving the AI file in various formats but when I do the import… nothing happens. Please help! Thank you!
If the illustration is in vector format, you could export a DXF file from Illustrator and import that.
Hi Dave, I already did that but after selecting import nothing happens
Is there any vector line work in the Illustrator file?
After you import try zooming extents. It’s a tool. There’s a chance your art is very small or large.
Dave: Yes all vector , simple drawing I did to test
Mono: Yes, nothing there
Can you share the DXF?
Do I need to save it as:
It it’s a raster image, you would need to save it in a raster format like JPG or PNG.
RGB or CMYK?
300 DPI or 72?
RGB. Either one. 300 might look better. What are you going to do with it once you have it in SketchUp?
If you’re exporting a dxf you shouldn’t have to select any of those raster options. In illustrator Export the file as a dxf. Then in sketchup, in a new blank file, import it. It should be there. If you want me to try, upload the dxf here.
I want to build couple rooms and then import Wall Art and place them in the rooms
The just create a graphic png or jpeg and use it as a texture then.
What are you exporting from Illustrator? The wall art or something like a floor plan lines drawing?
A simple logo 2 colors and text. All vectorized
So if you export a JPG or PNG, can you import that as an image?
Yes Dave, but nothing appears
Can you share the image file?
