SKP Export for IntelliCAD is a SketchUp SKP file export plug-in for IntelliCADÃ??Ã?Â®. This plug-in gives IntelliCAD the ability to export geometric data from SketchUp to SKP files.
SKP Export for IntelliCAD extracts facet data from 3D Solids as well as 3D Face, Polygon Mesh and PolyFace Mesh objects in the active IntelliCAD drawing and exports it to a SKP file. These objects can lie anywhere in space.
SKP Export for IntelliCAD is very easy to use. Once installed, it must be loaded into the IntelliCAD environment. There are simple instructions for this in the Getting Started document which can be found in the installation folder. Once loaded it adds new commands to IntelliCAD's existing commands and a new menu called "SKPExport" to the IntelliCAD menu containing these newly added commands.
The 'SKPExport' menu consists of the following commands:
SKPExport - Exports an SKP file
SKPExportHelp - Displays the SKP Export for IntelliCAD help file
SKPExportRegister - Registers your copy of SKP Export for IntelliCAD
SKPExportAbout - Displays the SKP Export for IntelliCAD About box
