  • $\begingroup$ Hello, could you explain the process you used to install it ? Did you unzip the file before installing it as an addon ? If yes, you shouldn't have, $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I've checked this against 3.1 and it works for me. As @Gorgious suggests, the correct steps are 1) download sketchup_importer.zip. 2) start blender. 3) Edit preferences and go to add-ons. 4) select install. You have to wait a bit though it seems to take nearly a minute for it to be ready to install. Did you follow those steps or do something else? $\endgroup$ Mar 29 at 15:09

    $\begingroup$ Check if there is any message printed out when you open the console with Window > Toggle System Console and copy/paste it in the question $\endgroup$

I had the same issue. Looked on the github page of the addon and there are many issues open about this.

However user 'helsharif' posted a link to this addon: https://github.com/RedHaloStudio/Sketchup_Importer/releases

  • $\begingroup$ The addon I linked works for me. I'm able to import .skp files and they all look okay. I don't know why the "standard" addon doesn't work but this one is a good alternative. Just make sure to remove the 'old' addon before installing this one. $\endgroup$ Jun 16 at 20:28
