does anyone remember?

Postby otb designworks » Wed Nov 07, 2007 12:11 pm

I know this was discussed here a few weeks ago.

Wasn't there someone who no longer had FBX export as a 3D model export choice on their Mac?

I usually use 3DS but thought I would try a fbx and it is not on the list anymore.

I think I remember the solution being uninstalling Sketchup and then reinstalling.

Two stupid questions though.

Can I just trash the application and leave everything else (plists, component lists, etc) and then just use the new application?

Where can I download the application again? Do I sign up for another 8 hour trial version and then use my existing serial number? Do I have to contact Sketchup support?

I guess I am using version 5 to do this right now..................................

There is no need to reinstall SU all you should have to do is start SU using Rosetta, however I think that maybe FBX has been removed completely from recent builds...this worked on build 6.0.313 but not on build 6.0.1145.

The Windows version has fbx export option If you want, I can give it a try (you can send me an email with an 1mb attachment from the link in my signature)

One should read the release notes for SU 6.0.1145 for Mac here : http://docs.google.com/View?docid=ajg9d7mmp8rt_5dfz7c6
it is clearly indicated :
" If you upgrade to a non-English release after installing an English SketchUp 6 release. the FBX exporter may not longer be available on the Mac. The workaround is to uninstall the release and then reinstall the non-English release. "

I am running an English version . Had the same problem. Reinstalled 6.0.1145. Fixed !

Good call Francois, however since I am running the English version I saw no reason to pay any attention to this ( I haven't used fbx for sometime).

Good news and bad news.......

Good news is the FBX export option is now available after reinstall!! Thanks Francois for that.

Now, however, 3DS export is non-functioning. When I choose 3DS as my export option and click the OPTIONS button, I get no window popup. Sketchup just sits there waiting for me to hit EXPORT. If I do hit EXPORT without attempting to change anything, I get the progress window, but it never starts the export. I get that blue/white barber's pole that indicates that it is thinking about it but a progress bar never starts and a file never shows up.

I tried trashing my plist to no avail.

This wouldn't be that big a deal to me except that VUE won't accept FBX files and it won't accept mac SKP files either, though it takes windows32 SKP files no problem.

This is so annoying.................

I experienced a bit of 3ds funkiness after reinstalling the 6.0.1145 build again, but after throwing away the "com.google.sketchuppro.plist" it all seems to be working as it should be.

Well, I trashed every Sketchup plist, trashed the program again, and reinstalled.

Everything seems to be behaving (knock wood)

Thanks for the help, guys
