HelpPlugins for Google SketchUp

Here you can download a plugin for Google SketchUp that enables exporting SketchUp files to the Wavefront OBJ file format. Files can then be opened in ShadowFX for shadow analysis.

For the plugin, the link takes you to the SketchUcation Community Forums website where you can register and download the required file. Don't forget that you have to register first on this website before you can see the download link.

To download the plugin, go to the SketchUcation Community Forums website.

To install the plugin in Google Sketchup:

  • Move the downloaded file to the SketchUp plugins folder. This is typically
    "C:/Program Files/Google/Google SketchUp 8/Plugins".
  • Restart SketchUp.
  • Click on the SketchUp File menu to use the plugin that is called "OBJexporter".
