I am trying to bring a SketchUp file into Rhino 5 clean it up and export as a .obj file. I am having issues with mesh normals when I import my .skp file, so I have instead imported my file as a .fbx, which seems to resolve the normals issue. Both files seem to have a large amount of triangulation much of which seems unnec essary (I’m a SketchUp guy so I’m a bit foggy in this area). I have used the “merge two edge faces” tool which does remove some of the lines but seems to create new issues. I have also used the Repair Mesh tool which seems to fix many of the issues from the import.
Is there a way to clean up these messy(unnecessary) edges?
Is there a good tutorial on cleaning up SketchUp models imported into Rhino or a suggested work flow?
Any suggestions would help.
Model on left is skp import, model on right is fbx import.
I’m using Rhino 5, and SketchUp 8 Pro
