Hi there. My first post and upfront apologies if this has been answered a million times. Please just point me to the relevant post if my search skills are lacking, if you’ve got the time. And thank you for it.
I’ve inherited a typically largish drawing set from an architect, with lots of blocks and xrefs. There are 13 root drawings such as “KS819_K01.dwg” (<-- the main floor plan I think), “KS819-ID07_4.dwg”, “KS819-ID02_1.dwg”, etc. There are 15 external references such as “x-KS819-bdr.dwg”, “X-SHELL-1607.dwg”, “X-FLR-PL-1607.dwg”, etc.
What’s the best workflow for prepping a cad file for import into Sketchup? I think all I need is a clean base floor plan and elevation as guides, but I’m overwhelmed by somewhat ineffective EXPLODE and PURGE commands, 100s of layers, hatches, etc. Yelp?
