PowerCADD 9.1.2 to SketchUp 2013

Postby BaughbLabs » Mon Nov 25, 2013 12:00 pm

After upgrading both apps, I'm having trouble getting SketchUp to recognize an exported PowerCADD file. I've tried exporting it in various formats and have had no luck. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

I have PowerCADD 9.1.3, Mac OS X 10.9, and SKetchupPRO 2013 v13.0.4811

I'm able to export from PowerCADD as DWG and DXF, and import that data into Sketchup just fine.

I've not tried the various other raster formats since I typically only need/want the real pcadd vector data in sketch up

If you recently upgraded sketch up it's worth noting that you also have to get a new license for the PRO version which includes DWG translation. I'm wondering if that might be the underlying cause.

I upgraded to the 2013 Pro and upgraded my license as well. Not sure what's going on.

see the other thread you started regarding not opening pcadd files
you may have system level issue going on

I seem to remember some weird behavior with file names. If you save a file as:

file.pc9.dwg

try changing the name to just:

file.dwg

If my memory serves correct SU didn't like the double filename extension.
