When exporting to Sketchup content of blocks gets correctly assigned to the corresponding layer, however the containing blocks go to “Untagged” layer in Sketchup.
This is quite problematic in larger models.
It would be great if blocks were tagged the same as their source Rhino model.
I use Rhino 8.0.23039.8305, 2023-02-08 btw
I’ve logged this

When you can could you look through this too?
Let me know if you need me to clarify or specify anything I would be happy to do so.
It’s 2023. Both Rhino and Sketchup have been around for more than 20 years.
Anyone that uses both programs knows that still, after 2 decades, Rhino’s Sketchup Exporter is no good. Sure, it gets geometry to the other side, hence the ‘robust’ adjective in title. I am sure we can raise the bar just a little bit.
Probably the person who wrote the exporter some time ago didn’t use Sketchup. I don’t blame him, it’s a pain. I almost don’t either and try to avoid it whenever possible.
But if you…
@ShynnSup thanks for the link. I’m discussing this with @tim who just committed the change for the issue linked above. I will need to get hold of a more capable version of Sketchup to fully understand and test what you need though. The online version does not support layers it seems.
