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...

"I think Norton mentioned that he did the conversion using TrueView, not the AutoCAD itself. He is still on ver. 2010 I suppose, otherwise he could do renderings directly in 2018. Maybe TrueView isn't quite versionwise correct as regards to…"

"One additional thought.  A known issue when saving drawings to a previous version is that nXt must be loaded and running before you convert the drawing. Try the following: 1. Open your 2018 drawing in AutoCAD. 2. Start nXt by typing…"
