I have a client who has quite a few product assemblies done in Sketchup Pro. We’re looking to find out whether that would be a suitable path into C4D or not. Being that they already have quite a bit of work done in that program, I’d like to explore as many options as there are for finding the best path into C4D.
I checked the Sketchup support page, and they list a few of the more common export options, with .OBJ being the most likely choice. Unfortunately, no STEP, but I guess that would be expecting too much from Sketch.
So, my question is whether any of you have first-hand experience with this? Are there any tricks or tips about getting the best results when exporting from Sketchup, so that the model/parts can start off as good as possible once imported into Cinema for animation?
Thanks so much!
