I am exporting parts created in Sketchup to Autodesk Inventor. The smoothest process I’ve come up with thus far is to export a DXF file, import into Inventor and employ the Inventor Stich tool to clean it up.
For the most part it works quite well except for extra hidden geometry I get on some surfaces (In the photo below I have highlighted an example, the blue wedge in the middle)
It doesn’t show up as hidden geometry in Sketchup so I don’t know what it represents. In terms of the model it doesn’t effect much, but when I choose tool-paths in CAM software (CNC manufacturing processes) it throws things off and creates false tool-paths.
If anybody has any experience with .skp to .ipt files I’d love to hear any tips you may have.
