I just added the STL extension. I’ve been using sketchup without problems for years and recently updated to Make 2014. I’m using an Intel 4 series graphics card with Intel 7 driver. The file I’m attempting to import is here.
I select “Import,” and “.stl,” select the file I’d like to import and make sure that all coplanar edges will merge and it will be in meters (to avoid small detail loss as the object is actually in millimeters). I see no response by sketchup when I click “Okay” other than the Edit menu offers the the option of “Undo STL Import.”
As I read around, I discovered that this problem might have happened before.
