Just a quick one on using external components.
In a recent project, I’ve had to make quite a bit of use of BIM Object to find various items for use, such as chairs and Lights, etc.
I always download these and then import into a new empty Sketchup file. If I open the file rather than import it, it reports that it was created in a previous version etc etc. Also, if I open it, I’m then stuck with the template in which it was created, which is often imperial. This is why I import it into a new file using my template.
On a few occasions, once I’ve done what I need to do and quit Sketchup, I get a Bugsplat. I have narrowed this down to only happening when I’ve been doing this with files created by others.
So, two questions, I guess;
Is it best to open the downloaded file rather than import it? Then, do the cleaning up, then Save As? If I open it, how do I then change the file measurements from Imperial to metric? Would it be in the Model Preferences?
Why would Importing it cause a Bugsplat on quiting?
Many thanks and Kind regards
