I have not.

Why not to do it using AutoCAD importer?

This success recorded via the autocad importer route is no better than that of NXT?

My old horse AR5 ver. 1.0.318 did this:

With 3ds files it's the bomb.

I usually open the SketchUp file and export it to a 3DS file....then add the 3DS file into ACAD via nXt.

Although....some issues as of late...see http://accurender.ning.com/forum/topics/tex-mesh-crashes?xg_source=...

It looks like it still works somewhat with SketchUp 8 and older models.

I'll see if I can fix it to support models through SketchUp 2018, and take a look at the material mapping problems that I'm seeing.

Thanks...

I posted a new version where Importing SketchUp models is working for all SketchUp files through version 2018, for 64 bit machines.

Note: the 32 bit version can only import SketchUp models saved from SketchUp 2016 and earlier versions, since SketchUp's 2017 and 2018 SDKs now only support 64 bit.

This was tested for AutoCAD versions 2015 through 2018, both 32 and 64 bit.

You can download this latest version from the downloads page:

Thanks Rich! Up and running...

"Send a sample drawing with the groundcover if possible-- it may be a scale issue."

"That's what I did too. I installed the older version of AccuRender that you're running, but it works fine for me. Wen you have a chance, could you let it run for maybe a half hour and see if it ever returns?"

"Yes it does exist. I am using nxt to add groundcover and browsing for the file. It stops when loading file."
