New problem by converting into the x-file

Postby schmitty » Mon Feb 28, 2011 8:15 am

Hello together.

I have a crazy problem by converting my model into the x-file for using it in VS.
It is not my first model but the first time i have this problem.
For generally: i using Google Sketchup 8 Pro demo for making a *.3ds file. To convert this file into the *.x-format i using the demo of Deepexploration CAD 5 and the Conv3ds from Ilan site.

I get no error message by converting, but if i load the model in VS i get a jumping window. I can here the ship (the motor-sound) but i can not see it. This is realy strange. I take the same boat.cfg file than for my Princess of Norway-model, because the two ships a similar.

Has anybody an idea, what could be wrong?

Regards
Christian

Hello,

You do not have a software (like Deep Exploration 5) which can directly convert the file .skp at file. x? I remember I had this problem and I change my way of converting ... change the way of convert and you try find another software.
I hope it I help you.


Best regards,

Dany.

Hello,

Before I was like you ... eg. Skp files at convert .3ds files to .x files but after its word a message error ( like you I think I dont very remember) and now I try to take another software. Now I use Deep Exploration 5.5 (I buy it because it helps me for my work) and , I backup my boat in version sketchup 6 because deep exploartion does not accept the new version and after I open DE5.5, I converts directly into a. x and now its works.

Best regards,

Dany.

I think Dany's idea is not bad. Try saving a copy of your ship choosing the old Sketchup 6 format, and then run Deep Exploration. Deep Exploration should be able to open the Sketchup 6 file that you just saved - and you can now convert it straight to an .x file (without the need to convert to 3ds first). Perhaps this will solve your problem. Let us know if it works!

Cheers,
Zsolt
