Hi, Jim:
This tool looks very useful. A couple of questions, if you will. Yes, they may be naive. :)
Can you define BandColor? All the other terms seem self explanatory.
How well, or does this data export into external renderers? Or, is this something you'd want to do?

When you set the aspect ratio of the viewport and you get those shaded areas, which by default is transparent grey.

I guess that would depend on the exporter used by the renderer. I think all SketchUp-compatible rendering engines have an exporter that supports SketchUp materials. Does that help?

How about colors from the layer palette? I find myself coloring by layer quite often, it would be nice to transfer those to the model data itself. Thanks for the script!

Access to layer colors is very limited [I wrote a way of getting them from a DXF export but it's pretty lame]... AdamB did come up with a 'possible' solution that never got finalized....
