Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting in 2D and 3D, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…SketchUp has the ability to import and export both 2D graphics and 3D models.…Now SketchUp Make is pretty basic in this regard.…It doesn't have a lot of import and export filters.…SketchUp Pro has quite a few more, so if you want to…really communicate with external packages, then…you might want to upgrade to SketchUp Pro.…But regardless of the package, the process is pretty much the same.…So,…we can find Export under the File menu.…So we can go Export, we can export 3D models, 2D graphics, you…can also get pro-3D exporters, which are the stuff you want in SketchUp Pro.…
But if we export, let's say, a 2D graphic, it will…basically export the image that we have here on the screen.…So I can export here into my chapter eight folder.…And when I do that, I can go into Photoshop here and open…that up. So you can see here I've got my image.…And this is basically the same image I have in the View Port.…Now if I go back into SketchUp, we can also export 3D object.…Now if I want to, I could do File > Export > 3D Model.…
All of the lessons work with both SketchUp Make, the free version of the program, and SketchUp Pro.
