Hey peeps. Read your 385 posts and though I would chime in with a solution.
Would anyone here be interested in this extension I wrote? It’s a one-click fix to this problem. First, use the native File > Geo-location > Add Location command to geo-locate your model and set the coverage area you want. Then, use my extension to convert to a Google image like this:
The Google image automatically comes in at the correct location and scale. It’s functionally equivalent to the Google Earth Pro export/import solutions described above but without all those tedious steps. You can even set a custom keyboard shortcut for a more efficient workflow.
Tested on Windows and Mac, SketchUp Make 2017, SketchUp Pro 2017 and 2018 English language versions.
I’m looking for a few beta testers. If you know how to install an RBZ file, please verify that your profile is showing your current OS and SketchUp versions and then PM me.
