    As title says, is it possible to export file from Freeship right into Google SketchUp?

    You can do a dxf import with sketchup 7 (look up old version) then save as skp and reopen in later version. They disabled the dxf import in later versions to make people buy the pro.

    Thanks Nick. I used your advice last week to download Sketchup 7.1 pro from

    I still have over 7 hours left on the 7.1 pro demo using it to import. Then it will revert to free features. Hopefully it will keep working for file import. Then I save it as sketchup skp format and work in sketchup 8.
