SKP Import for IntelliCAD is a SketchUp SKP file import plug-in for IntelliCADÃ??Ã?Â®. This plug-in gives IntelliCAD the ability to import geometric data from SketchUp SKP files.
SKP Import for IntelliCAD reads polygon mesh data stored in SKP files and imports it into IntelliCAD. A polygon mesh in a SKP file is comprised of a set of triangular or quad faces. SKP Import for IntelliCAD recreates the SKP model data inside the active ItelliCAD drawing. The model can be recreated as set of points, lines, polylines, 3D faces or a polyface mesh.

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 "SKPImport" to the IntelliCAD menu containing these newly added commands.
