SketchUp to CAD, Need Pro


#1

Hey guys. Interior Designer here. I need to have one of my models translated to a CAD drawing. Its a relatively small job. Exterior landscape and outdoor living space. I need to hand the architect a CAD file that accurately represents my conceptual model. Thought I’d look here.


#2

You can do that yourself. Just export the file as a 3D Model and set the file type to DWG or DXF.


#3

Seriously, Its that easy? Does everything translate?

#5

When you say to set the file type… do I just delete .skp and type in DWG?


#6

No. Use File Export>3D Model and change the file type to DXF or DWG.


#7

Will do. Thanks so much!
