I am using QGIS (Geographical Information System software) to draw areas (for solar projects). Then i want to import those faces into Sketchup to then design the photovoltaic plant.
There are 2 ways to do this.
Export the face from Qgis into a KML. Then convert the KML to KMZ (with https://mygeodata.cloud). But when importing the KMZ, Sketchup says “import failed” without any other explanation.
-The KMZ file is correct when opened in Google Earth;
-In Sketchup i did geolocate the drawing beforehand.
Export the face from QGIS into a DXF. When importing the DXF into sketchup, when it works, i don’t get a face; instead the edge of the face is a set of 2 lines with a surface (face) inbetween (up to 1m distance between the 2 lines). As if the DXF line was given a thinkness in sketchup…
Other info :
-When opening the DXF file with TrueView or Autocad, is not a face but a poyline (and only one).
Has anyone an idea of what could be an explanation or other another method?
