Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I'm having the same problem. Twinmotion 2019 crashes when importing 70MB Sketchup file (instant crash). Have tried saving as .SKP version 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, and no success.

Imports Cinema 4D files fine.

Working on a Mac OSX 10.13.6 40GB RAM GTX 780

Same here... Twinmotion on Mac crashes on import of any skp file. Windows appears to work fine.

Same crash issue, on MAC. disappointing to say the least.

Same. I made a cube and saved it 2016 (tried 2013 too) sketchup pro and it crashes. Twinmotion used to work with Sketchup very nicely so they must have broken something and are working to put it back together.

Same thing with DAE files too.

If you want to temporarily work around it, export as OBJ. It works like it used to work with Sketchup and I imagine will again in the near future. It does a great job of grouping the whole import so setting materials is a breeze.
