Hey there, I’m new to Sketchup but I’ve looked at a number of tutorials.
I have a scene within Sketchup, and when I file -> export 3D model (as 3Ds) and open it in 3Ds max, all seems well.
The main issue is - when I export it out of Max as a .3ds and try to import the edited file back into Sketchup, it 1.) overwrites the existing model in the file and 2.) essentially moves the model import around by cursor. It also seems like the wrong scale. I’m not sure why this is. I’ve tried setting the scale in max to meters, following the model info under “units”.
Is there a specific way to setup 3ds max for use with Sketchup, such as setting up the units as inches, and is there a way to import a file from 3ds max INTO a Sketchup project without overwriting in?
Thanks so much.
