Trouble inserting a sketchup model into layout


I’m trying to insert a sketchup 2017 pro model into layout 2017 and continually get the message “unable to insert…”. I can insert other models with no problem. What is wrong? Thanks!


Are you using File>Insert? Are you sure you’re not trying to select the SKB file?

Maybe you can upload the SKP file in question?


Hi Dave— thanks for the response. I am using File, Insert. I have never had this problem before. And I can insert other models with no problem. Even earlier versions of the same model insert OK. I am mystified.


So what about my other questions? Are you trying to insert the SKB file? Could you share the file that isn’t inserting?


from SU v17 does File >> Send to LayOut work for that file?



No—nothing happens.
