Yes. If input model has only one material: select material texture at second step. If input model has more materials: you can ignore second step because materials should be automatically loaded:

thank you thank you thank you!!!

started to move my old trueSpace models from the archives to Sketchup...

just gotta work out a method tho... some of my models (well all of them) are multipart models that are to big to bring in as one mesh. problem is, splitting them down means having to line it all up again, unless I'm missing a key modifier for "paste in place"....

ok. Cob (caligari trueSpace) is a little shakey, but don't worry, I'm likely to be the only person to be using that....

OBJ so far is nice and solid, other than some scaling issues.. everythings coming in tiny ;) but thats not a real issue...

thanks again!

Hi,

Import fails because filename contains a '#' character.
Substitute '#' with '_' and import will be succesful. ;)

Problem is I don't have macOS computer. Maybe I could try code it on a virtual machine?
Since v1.0.3, plugin is compatible with macOS.

I have not had this program to import any files, STL or OBJ or STP. Below is the following error message I get trying to import an STP file of a nut that is 24k large.

I did notice in the program, it lists the file as obj file when the file name is, CROSBY 2160 300T NUT.STP.

Thanks for your help.

Could you please upload whole folder (model and textures) to a file hoster? This way I could debug it.

Did you tried plugin with another model? If yes, does same (assimp stop) problem occurs?

Install Microsoft Visual C++ library then restart SketchUp. Let me know if problem persists.

Run SketchUp as Administrator then re-import OBJ model. Let me know if problem persists.

If this step fixes the issue then it's almost certain that SketchUp was not installed correctly !

To fix it...
Whilst logged into Windows as your normal Windows user-name, ensure that SketchUp is closed.
Find the SketchUp installer's exe file - probably in your Downloads folder ?
Select the exe file's icon and right-click > context-menu > "Run as administrator"
When prompted choose "Repair".
Restart SketchUp and retry...

Installing any complex app in any other way can cause weird and unpredictable problems, often around permissions...
So never double-click an installer's exe file to 'Run' it - even if you have admin-powers, it is not the same thing.

Your model had absolute paths to textures. That's not supported by plugin.
I converted absolute paths to relative paths with a text editor. It's OK now:

@Danish9762: You need to relax the extension loading policy you have set withing SketchUp.

@Danish9762 "Unsigned" problem isn't a bug, it just means plugin doesn't come from SketchUp Extension Warehouse.

As suggested by @juju, relax SketchUp extension loading policy settings. To access these settings, select Window > Preferences > Extensions Policy (Microsoft Windows) or SketchUp > Preferences > Extensions > Policy tab (OS X). SketchUp has three available extension policy modes: “Identified Extensions Only”, “Approve Unidentified Extensions”, and “Unrestricted”. Select “Unrestricted” then restart SketchUp.

It was already mentioned on GitHub page. And now, it's also mentioned on SketchUcation page.
