Hello , I am looking to obtain a professional license to construct 3D models. I was wondering if anyone has insight or advice on the following generalized work flow from SketchUp to ESRI ArcPro. I will list the points for simplicity sake.
-Start with importing individual floor plans/building plans from CAD into Sketchup
-Extrude features to the appropriate heights and dimensions
-Texture the exteriors and or interiors with actual images taken in the field
- Export the 3D model of the building
What would be the best way to export the 3D textured model from SketchUp to then be used in ArcPro?
Does the 3D model retain it’s geolocation (if the CAD data is georeferenced)?
Is the exported 3D model used as a textured multipatch feature in ArcPro?
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
