Hi again,

You can’t import a SketchUp file but you can save a SketchUp drawing as a dxf and import polylines into Polyboard. I’m not sure if SketchUp exports directly polylines so you might have to use intermediate CAD program to make them from the SketchUp export.

Cheers,

Ness

Hi Paul,

This is due to the SketchUp import units. How you set these units depends on your version of SketchUP, so please consult you SketchUp help menu for more information.

You can find plenty of information on importing files on the internet, ig:
