This plugin can be used to import the 3D model of Active3D or Arqui_3D.
Every object generated inside Sketchup comprises of an identifier that facilitates you to keep your geometry updated inside Sketchup every time the original project modifies in Active3D or Arqui_3D.
The objects belong to groups whose name is the identifier. It is suggested not to modify the group names.
The materials related to objects inside Sketchup are preserved if they are involved with the group. If you relate the material with the faces of the group, this association tends to be lost in the update.
For upgrading, just press the command again. There is the option to delete the objects which are no more available in the original project can be deleted or retained.
The context menu includes tools to choose all objects equivalent to the chosen one, by layer or material, simplify the process to assign materials.
