I need to create a large model for a friend (my first official project
The building is 210 meters long and 120 meters wide.
He has given me both CAD and PDF drawings of the building.
I’ve tried importing the files into the SketchUp and here is what has happend:
- SU crashes as soon as i try import the CAD drawing (Macbook: 1.7ghz with 4GB ram)
- the PDF import is very poor quality when i scale it to size, so it is impossible to trace
- i’ve tried ourputting the CAD drawing at 300dpi in .jpeg and .png but they also loose quality when i try scale them to size
I read somewhere that SU automatically reduces images to 1024 regardless of the size you import… is this true.
Can anyone recommend a way to get the plan into SU so i can start tracing at the real scale size (210m X 120m)
Thanks in advance for your help
