Import of sketchup into rhino


I work with Rhino 4.0 and Sketchup 8 and run Windows 8 64-bits.
I am trying to import a simple volume from Sketchup into Rhino, but it does not work. Rhino says the import is successful. I assume it’s a matter of scale. However, both programs are set to work in meters. Where is the problem then?
Thank you.

You’ll need V5 to import newer SKP mesh files. V4 had an early (2007) proof-of-concept Labs tool but it won’t read any of the newer SKP file formats.

Download V5, install it as an eval, and give it a go.


Hello. Thank you for your answer. I understand that import of sketchup files into Rhino 4 cannot work. I tried what you said and it worked indeed.
