I’m a fairly new user to SketchUp using the program to try and build a few 3D models of an apartment building for use as art reference when drawing. I’m trying to export the file to FBX or OBJ, something I can use within my drawing program (Clip Studio Paint), and I’m hoping to make a few specific objects separately selectable so that I can move them separately from the rest of the model (i.e. the front door). However, when I try, a few different things happen:
-export to FBX: generates a 20MB+ file that makes my drawing program freeze and crash–whether because it’s too large for it to handle, or because it’s an ASCII FBX maybe? Blender can’t open them either because it’s ASCII.
-export to OBJ: generates a single object with nothing individually selectable, and also some of the textures/faces seem to be missing? (i.e. left grass face, entrance stairs)
-export to DAE, import to Blender and export to FBX/OBJ: requires me to explode everything in order for it to enter Blender at all, and then items get grouped strangely besides? The front door gets linked to like half of the 3rd floor and I have no idea why.
Thanks in advance, any advice is a huge help!
