I have a very large model made in Google Sketchup v 7.1. I would like to export this to a Multipatch featureclass, so that I can view it in ArcScene, with other 3D data. I have tried several things, but none of them have worked. I have tried the following things:
1]Used the Sketchup Plugin for ArcGIS; For this I have saved the model as a skecthup 6 model, and on a machine which has Sketchup Pro 6 & ArcGIS 9.2, used the export as ESRI Multipatch. This works for small and simple modles, but fails on my Large Model.
2]Exported the Model as KMZ, and then tried to use the QuickImport using the InterOp Extension of ArcGIS.
3]Exported the Sketchup 6 Model as Google Earth 4 KMZ. Then I tried to use the QuickImport using the InterOp Extension of ArcGIS. This does import the KMZ to Multipatch, but it does not fall where I expect it to fall. Its size is very large as well (when compared to actual or expected size)
Has anyone else managed to do something like this?
