Because I don't have Sketchup Pro I use Vivaty Studio to convert from Sketchup 7 to 3D Studio Max 7........

Export Sketchup 7 to Google earth KMZ format - open Vivaty Studio - import kmz, save to fxw, then export to VRML wrl format - Open 3D Studio Max - import wrl - select the NON-mesh objects and delete - select each mesh object in turn - weld vertices, set pivot position and select Align to World - Reset Transform and Scale - Apply an X-Form Modifier and collapse the stack. Name the object according to RW principles and apply a Kuju material. This process carries the Sketchup UVW texturing across to 3D Studio Max.

Just keep asking lots of questions - its easier than it sounds in writing.

Thank you Paul. I'll maybe give that a try - I know Google released Earth pro on a free licence recently so if they ever do it with Sketchup pro since they have Setchup Make out now then I'll be on that like a tramp on chips :D

Cheers guys. I'll let you know how Angus turns out :D
