SketchUp 2017 Add Location work around?



Has anyone found a workaround for add location and getting terrain prior to SU 2017?
I found google, jpg, then resize, but no terrain.

& will it work on SU2017? thanks


Check this plugin: PlaceMaker . Not only for terrain but also road & buildings data etc…


Don’t think PlaceMaker works with Sketchup 2014?


From the FAQ page


PlaceMaker does not have its own terrain import option. It can import a flat snapshot and locate your model but does not bring in a terrain surface with the snapshot.


Yeah, my bad. It implements SketchUp’s terrain feature.
I presumed OP’s question was about imagery and recent complaints about it.

Are you using SketchUp Make?

Got it handled thanks, Billy


Consider sharing how you handled might help others as well.


I purchased SU2017 Placemaker would be $200 after free trial.
