Export Google SketchUp to Blender 2.6 on Ubuntu 12.04

Well it is possible but I think you need to make the models right in sketchup

So far I have imported a giant spray can and the nozzle is not where it should be and the brain is missing. As the .dae files contain Collada XML they can be examined in GEdit. Marl crufty XML – give me JSON everytime.

But the procedure works as follows :

Export Sketchup to Google World which outputs a .kmz file.

Rename this to .zip and unzip.

It will reveal various files and folders, the .dae can be imported with FILE >> import >> .dae ( collada ) in Blender

Sledgehammers keep Secrets

Who watches the Watchmen ? (Alan Moore)

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Who will guard the Guards Themselves ?

audio quid ueteres olim moneatis amici,
“pone seram, cohibe.” sed quis custodiet ipsos
custodes? cauta est et ab illis incipit uxor.

I hear always the admonishment of my friends:
“Bolt her in, constrain her!” But who will guard
the guardians? The wife plans ahead and begins with them.

(Juvenal from his Satires (Satire VI, lines 347–8))
