Hello, I just have downloaded sketchup, I watched a tutorial and followed his steps, but when I tried to import my project to muvizu from sketchup, a message said: "This format isn't known". The format that I'm using is dae., the right is ase. but I can't convert dae to ase, because I can't found a converter or another solution to my problem! Does anybody have the solution? please help me!

Hi magnata_14,

I don't know if there's a maximum of pictures that could be shown here, because I tried to answer you already 2 times but was thrown out of the forum after adding the message ?

So, I have to keep it short - 2 alternatives to Sketchup (with Cow.dae example).

1. Use Blender:


2. Use the free program gile (LINK) from the danish frecle team with direct ASE export:


You have to exchange the complete MATERIAL_LIST (Blue) inside the ASE file with another one containing the MAP_CLASS "Bitmap" (otherwise MUVIZU will crash):


Insert your correct texture file name and save ASE again. Import in MUVIZU - READY !

That Gile is a neat little program, and it actually likes .ase files (unlike everything else) - good stuff, thanks Tripfreak! Thumbs Up

Hi magnata,

your DAE file seems to be a bit strange - normally Sketchup (with DAE import) alone should do the job.
I don't know if you use VISTA ? In that case the produced files are often not shown (although existent) if you started your program not as administrator.

Of course, you could try Blender, but you'll need an ASE script fitting to your Blender version.
I don't remember where I got my script from (Blender 2.62) ...
Its not on the official site: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts
and also not on Katsbits: http://www.katsbits.com/tools/
But if you want to try it I could upload mine and set a link.

You're welcome, ziggy !

Hi magnata,

here (LINK) is my ASE exporter. You have to copy it into the "addons" section under "scripts".
But it will probably only work with Blender 2.62.

Here (LINK) seems to be a newer version for Blender 2.63 (probably by the same developer).

Good Luck !
