How to import 3D Illustrator object into Sketchup?

advice

#1

Hi!

I am trying to put an object that I created in Illustrator to use as a sculpture in my SketchUp file. So far, I have found that I can import the line art (dwg), but then I am not able to push/pull the object as there are no faces. Then I tried importing the file as a 3D illustrator as a PDF but it doesn’t preserve the 3D aspect of the object. Either way, I am stuck with a flat version of my 3D object. I need my object to be three dimensional in my SketchUp file!

Am I missing something obvious? Please help!!
