I want to import Sketchup models in blender. For that, I tried exporting models form sketchup in various formats using the built in exporter in Sketchup followed by import in blender. The model looked fine in Sketchup but when I imported it in blender using "Import Model", the model's body mesh gets triangulated. This is making the model useless for me as it is very hard to work with in blender. Especially circular parts gets triangulated to a number of portions and are very hard to scale/ rotate etc. Please suggest how should I import/export the model correctly.
I tried the procedure above for
- 3dS Max
The model looks same with all formats.
