#1

Hello everyone i’m working on a project and i need to extract data from a 3D model, and i don’t now if there is a specific language that allows it or i can use any developing language (java for example) ?
I’m searching for any tutorials that may help.
Thnx in advance.

Sure is. The language is Ruby and the place to start is http://www.sketchup.com/intl/en/developer/

What sort of output do you need?
