I'm using Bash under Window to dynamically generate a ruby script. This script allow me to import a specific KML file in sketchup and when the import is done I would like to export my model to KMZ file. This is an extract of my ruby script
Code: Select all
#----------------------------------------------------------
   # Impport du modèle KML.
   model = Sketchup.active_model   
   status = model.import inKML, false
   
   if status
      #----------------------------------------------------------
      # Suppression du modèle KML importé.
      #File.delete( inKML )

      #----------------------------------------------------------
      # Export du modèle au format KMZ.
      modelFile=File.basename( inKML, ".kml" )
      exportPath = exportDir + modelFile + ".kmz"
      model.export exportPath
      model.entities.clear!

      #Sketchup.undo
      #Sketchup.app_safe_shutdown
   end


But the import KML plugin seems to give back the control to my script while importing, so the exported KMZ is not complete because the KML is not completely imported.

Any idea about this problem ?

"File seems not to exist.
Please check that the file path does not contain Unicode characters. This is a limitation of SketchUp and its Ruby version."
Am I doing something wrong? Took the KMZ file from gps opened in Google earth saved as KML then tried to import into SU with the KMLtools and I get the error above..

It appears that KML Tools are not yet compatible with 2014. I get the message:

Error Loading File kmlDate.rb
Error: #<SyntaxError: C:/Users/truga/AppData/Roaming/SketchUp/SketchUp 2014/SketchUp/Plugins/kmlDate.rb:77: formal argument cannot be a global variable
...previewTimeLine") {|$kmlDateDlg, param|
...

etc.

I am getting the same problem (Mac OSX 10.9.2) with v 2013 and 2014 - with Google SketchUp 8.0.15157 - the old version works fine. Sad, because SU is a great tool for visualization AND a converter to make X3D files from GPS-GPX tracks thus: GPS tracker > GPX > KML (gpsbabel or GPS Viz) > SKP > VRML (WRL) > X3D (via aopt). See the models here: http://abdallah.hiof.no/drone/index.html

Hi,

great job with the plugin! I would like to know, if the functionality of adding timestamps can be included in next release? In 2.0 beta there is none, in the previous stable version, there is availability to add a timestamp.

Thanks for the reply,

Paul

I use SketchUp 2014.
The file (attached) contains an image and a single poligon realized and exported in KML by Google Earth
When I run the kml tools for any files .kml everywhere it is in PC (c:, Desktop, other directory) always it says:
1) "the model does not contain a Google Earth terrain. Do you want import one first , Yes No"
in both cases
2) "File seems non to exist. Please check the file path does not contain Unicode characters. This is a limitation of SketchUp and its Ruby version."

Where is the problem?

Thank you for all contributions.
