Hi Bomastudio,

Some time ago I wrote an export script from Sketchup to Gmsh.
It exports:
Sketchup Groups as Gmsh Volumes
Sketchup Faces as Gmsh planes
Sketchup Edges as Gmsh lines
Sketchup Vertices as Gmsh points

It knows how to find the correct sign for line-loops
It exports both inner and outer Sketchup faces
It aslo exports Sketchup text (entered by the user).

It does export circles and cylinders, but as an approximation of 24 lines
as this is how Sketchup sees them internally.

It is also able to handle nested groups with transformations.

I cross-posted this also on the Sketchucation website.

Best Regards,
