The window that opens to save the file where it is given a name does not appear any expesion.

Sounds like toto.bmp to me.

Create a 256x256 pixel bmp file and name it c:\ut3\toto.bmp and this may fix it.

Ah, thanks, that fixed it, for the most part. What does that file do, and what color should it be? Does it matter? It works when I create simple objects, but any models from the 3d warehouse still give me grief. But it definitely is progress!

One thing I don't know how to do is get textures mapped to the objects, trying to apply them in Sketchup results in a missing file error when importing in Muvizu. Applying anything in Muvizu results in a tiny repeating pattern.

I would really love some tips on using this, though at least I can now create some more diverse landscapes and stuff, I really appreciate that.


The colour of the toto.bmp isn't important, no, so it can be whatever colour you like. As for getting the textures off imported objects, the easiest way is to use the Raylectron Texture exporter, a little plugin that I find invaluable.

You load up your object in Sketchup, then under Tools use the exporter - it will export all textures from your object and put them into whatever folder you want. You can then reassign them in Muvizu, one by one.

You don't need to quote other messages, it just makes your message less clear. (Also you only need to post the message once)
When you have installed Sketchup 8 and then followed the instructions on this site to install the plugin: http://www.rodneyandberty.com/downloads You need to go to "Plugins" in the top menu, then "HardPCMs Exporter for Unreal Tournament" then Export then ASE format then just press ok. This will make a files window pop up where you name the file and put .ase at the end.
To import into Muvizu, open Muvizu then go to "Create"-->"Import" and select the file you just exported from Sketchup.

Sorry, no, now I'm confusing things

The Ziggymesh plugin lives in Tools, not plugins. My original ZMB (Match Box) is what I still use, and that has the HardPCM path instead. I know it's odd that I don't use the plugin named after me, but I have boring technical reasons for still using the ZMB.

Please stop quoting so many messages at once. I feel like I'm trying to decrypt the enigma code when working out who you're replying to.
You don't need that script-spot link for basic importing from Sketchup.
I realised we've said quite a few different menus which aren't correct. The Ziggymesh exported I linked earlier appears under this menu in sketchup:


If you're running into any issues then please describe them and we'll be able to show you how to fix them.

Just saw this on 3dwarehouse

"Please Note: On January 1, 2017, SketchUp Version 8, and SketchUp Version 2013 file formats will no longer be available for download from 3D Warehouse."


Seems like that might affect our workflow. Any ideas?

Maybe this link is helpful https://gist.github.com/ialhashim/9522211

Can anyone figure out the quick way to use a script like this and start offloading stuff in the format we need?

maybe it's time to start using a newer version of sketchup, now that the syntax error that was keeping the ASE exporter from working in new versions has been identified and the fix has been defined.

Edit required to fix the ASE exporter found at the end of this message is described near the end of the following thread:

https://www.muvizu.com/forum/topic5438-importing-assets.aspx?p=f#post31558




link to the ASE exporter that will work with sketchup 2016 if you make the edit described above:

Hi ! New year, new problems with SketchUp

I have had sketch Up 8 with Ziggymesh ASE exporter running perfectly fine in December, didn't used it since then but now that I'm back on it the exporter simply doesn't work. Like it is still recognized, still asks where I want to save my ASE file etc but when I click export, nothing happens, no ASE file anywhere to be found. Anyone had the same problem and fixed it ?

thanks !

if you are exporting models you got from the sketchup warehouse, try saving the model first, then export.

If that doesn't work, make sure the model is completely selected before you export as ASE

If neither of those things works, I'm out of ideas.

Try with a simple Sketchup cube. If that works, then the model is the problem not the exporter. Check it isn't too big and complex e.g. with hidden geometry.

Hey guys,
I know the old ZiggyMesh exporter doesn't work with Sketchup 2017, so I modified the existing Muvizu .ase Sketchup exporter to export with this "matchbox" collision.
Here's the link to the new version: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-_4UVPr59ACQldMOW1qMEdsZ2c (Compatible with Sketchup 2014+, just go to Window -> Extension Manager -> Install Extension and choose this file)
I plan to re-enable the option to export with no collision so that Muvizu generates its own.
