but now i need help to convert it to .x , I cant remember the name of the converter, but ive tried last year and it was not working :oops:

Big thank again.

Andymahn


try looking up the 3DRAD plugin, it's a free alternative to deep exploration, use "export as generic diectX file (includes backfaces)".
Hope this helps!

I'm sure it's a valid tip (export to .x from Google Sketchup)

The better link would be this one:

http://www.3drad.com/Google-SketchUp-To-DirectX-XNA-Exporter-Plug-in.htm

Haven't tested it, one of these days I will.
Cheers,

Ron
