Do the same thing you would in blender.
Export as a .md3 or a supported one then just do the rest

You can export 3D models to other programs in several 2D and 3D formats:

* Export 2D images of your models.
o JPEG image (.jpg)
o Portable Network Graphics (.png)
o Tagged Image File (.tif)
o Windows Bitmap (.bmp).
* Export your files to COLLADA (.dae) format for use in a variety of different 3D programs.
* Place models in Google Earth. You can place SketchUp models in Google Earth by using the "Place Model" command.
* Export a Google Earth file directly in KMZ format.
* Share SketchUp models to the 3D Warehouse.

Google SketchUp Pro

In addition to everything you can do with Google SketchUp, using Google SketchUp Pro you can:

* Export in additional 2D formats:
o Portable Document Format (.pdf)
o Encapsulated PostScript Format (.eps)
o Epix (.epx)
o AutoCAD (.dwg, .dxf)
* Export 3D models in additional formats:
o 3DS (.3ds)
o AutoCAD DWG (.dwg)
o AutoCAD DXF (.dxf)
o FBX (.fbx).
o OBJ (.obj)
o XSI (.xsi)
o VRML (.vrml)
* Export animations and walkthroughs as MOV with the Mac version of SketchUp, or export AVI files from the Windows version of SketchUp.

So you can't unless you got PRO

daltonds, I gotta ask - are you ever off this forum? lol

Its easy to do it with normal sketchup - just export as a .dae file, import to blender, and export to obj - easy :)
I'm taking modelling requests again - any models you want created,skinned or animated (or all 3) leave a post here:



My tutorial site - still under construction, but lots of good stuff there:
