SketchUp plugin to convert components to low poly version which works with Enscape.

  • Very nice. Thank you very much. Thanks to your tool my workflow for large models (consististing of multiple proxies) has become much shorter. Really appreciate your tool.


    I do run into the following issue. The proxy models are properly aligned (with the same 0-point) however somehow the Enscape view shows them in different locations (also after updating Enscape). I am currently playing around with the axis origin of the components and the overall model but have not found a solution yet.



    Please send me the model for further investigation.

  • Strange. I can only get proper allignment if I align the individual models in Sketchup with respect to the models initial origin point (actually moving the model and not using the 'change axis' button???). Then save, then convert to proxy model and then save the proxy model. Now all proxy models are aligned properly with respect to each other and also when comparing the Sketchup view with the Enscape view. Any idea what is going on here?

    Strange, I don't have this problem...

    To be honest I first reloaded the original components and created new proxies because the path to the original components is inside the proxy.

    Also if you do not reload but start with making proxies from the originial 'Engine' and ' Mechanical' and then align them using the squares to the 'Civil' model?

  • Dear Mr. GWD, as the AW Proxy for Enscape3d plugin you developed is very handy, my friend SDT is developing a Proxy object manager plug-in, and wants to achieve a saving and loading function by installing your plug-in first and then calling your plug-in command. We will not make any changes to your plug-in. We just want to ask for your permission and look forward to your reply

    No problem

  • It'd be nice if if could add these Proxies to the enscape asset library so we can create assets in sketchup and use them in Revit.

    Definitely something which we plan to implement with a future release. But as always, we want to get it right the first time, so there is no ETA just yet when this will be developed.

    For us this is definitely the #1 most important feature. If we could share assets through the Enscape cloud, it could also be a way to strengthen the community. A win-win for everyone.


    I'm really hoping this will be prioritized in the next development cycle :)

  • Thank you GWD. It's great work, and how nice of you to share.

    I have been using linked Enscape object quite a bit, and it seems your version is better as you can actually see some shapes, not just box lines.


    A question regarding #3:

    3. all instances of this component will be replaced by the low poly version and the Original component is saved in the same location as the SketchUp model.


    Can the original component files be saved in a sub folder inside the folder the SK model is saved? I tend to use tons of linked objects, and I'd like to keep the folder structure organized.
