Import formats recognized by Sketchup 2023?

The source for some objects I’d like to use in several models come in .max, .fbx, and .obj formats. Are any of these importable directly into Sketchup 2023?

If not, which formats can be imported?


Go to File>Import and look at the list of file types you can import.

.max is a format that can ONLY be opened in 3D Studio Max.
.fbx can be translated into Collada (.dae) with Autodesk’s free translator
.obj must either be translated into a suitable format or imported using a third party extension.
