Hi - I’ve discovered that when I use the Rhino Sketchup exporter (direct export to skp file), I get great results (layers, materials, vectors all translate perfectly), EXCEPT the resulting geometry is always triangulated. This is evident when turning on hidden geometry in Sketchup. This result is absolutely deadly for any further editing work in Sketchup, or for exports from SKP to Vray or other renderers. On the other hand, using DWG export from Rhino to Sketchup yields great untriangulated surface geometry in Sketchup, but vectors and materials/colors do not translate. Is there a fix, or can the Rhino Sketchup exporter be fixed?

Working in a studio where Rhino and Sketchup are both used, there is always a need to translate geometry back and forth, so the Sketchup exporter is essential. It is so close to perfect yet the triangulation is a dealbreaker.

Thoughts, suggestions?

Thanks,
