Greetings from Hungary ... 2 questins for start

Postby l_verio » Thu Nov 22, 2007 3:03 pm

Hi !
First of all, I'm happy to find this site after a few weeks "playing" with sketchup.
Can anybody tell me please how do I make a custom line in a sketchy style ? (using OSX).

And one more ting.. completely different. :) .. I'm sure there is a previous post about "how to place a model in google earth" .. that would be nice to know too. Because it doesn't seems to stay there :)

Thanks !!

Have you gone through the plugin tutorial? Available here:
http://www.sketchup.com/index.php?id=408

If you have and are still facing problem, maybe you need to be more specific. For instance, is location placement not correct, or it doesn't show at all or ...?

Hi !
Thanks for all the help.

I've read all of them, and did everithig how it's written. I have my model in the warehouse. (try a search for: Andrassy Palace Gardens - Building 83-85)
Got the terrain done, placed the model in GE,

AND ???!!!

it says SUPreview.. so it's temporary.



Really am I this stupid ?

It IS included (you turn it on or not).
I sent you a PM - I really need to go now on top of all.

You can try to upload your original file to Kelly's server here and give us the URL. The file in the WH is most probably corrupted for some reason.

Now Olivér,

One thing is; you should put it on a GE snapshot, you know.

It's the same problem as before; Though in the WareHouse image (thumbnail) I can see the pictures on the faces but when I download and open the file, all the faces (except for the roof texture) come out simply brown.

What image format did you use?

I use JPEG.

I din't included the GE snapsot this time (with the model i uploaded to WH ) because i saw other buliding models also doesn't have them on WH. .. In my total desperation I tought i give it a try.

The snapshot is carrying the georeferenced metadata according to which the kmz file can be opened in GE.

I just simply do not understand what's up with the images. Can you see them on your machine at all?

Now I'm pretty sure that this is the same issue as with Chuck's panorama in this topic.
I'll let the SU Team know about this as well.
