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...

"Interesting.  ArStudio has its own WalkAbout-like feture, it's the little camera button.  If you do it while the preview is running you should see the view changes automatically in the rendering."

"I'm having trouble getting the desired view in Studio. I've tried setting the view in nXt walkabout and then using that to set the AutoCAD view. However, when I render from Studio, it gives me something different (see images below)."

"Sort of-- nXt has a hard-coded max of 32 but you get diminishing returns before than point.  If you go beyond 32 they can sometimes be used, depending on the load.  I guess I would still think of 32 as a practical limit. ArStudio should…"
