Import Google Earth models in Sketchup

Import Google Earth models in Sketchup

Postby mark151 » Mon Nov 07, 2011 5:28 pm

I know, in Components window in Sketchup I can select "Near models" and it finds me all the downloadable models. But there aren't all the models of my project area. instead, if I open Google Earth and select to load 3D models, all the area is covered by models.

Is there a way to download these models, or import them in sketch up in order to modify them?
Or, is there a way in Google Earth to misure models high?

Models can be uploaded to GE several ways.
  1. Some bigger organizations with many models use this way and you cannot obtain these models (unless you find out who made them and get them from them)
  2. Then there is building maker - where available at least - and unless a modeller decides to save his model to the 3D Warehouse, too, you cannot access these models.
  3. Then there is the 3D Warehouse where
    1. a modeller may decide not to allow folks o download his models and
    2. some other modellers decide to allow downloads - now this is the only case when you can access and download those "Nearby models".
