Sketchup Pro 2014 and 2015 geometry not exporting to WUFI

Post by Rodell Sam » Tue Jun 02, 2015 7:26 am -1100

Hello,

I have the WUFI plugin installed for sketchup but am unable to export sketchup's geometry to WUFI through the plugin. This was not a problem with Sketchup Pro 8, but has been impossible in Sketchup Pro 2014 and 2015. I keep WUFI open when exporting geometry from sketchup (as was done before) but the plugin fails to transfer the geometry. I then tried saving the geometry using the WUFI plugin as a *.wps (which is the only file type that the WUFI plugin defaults to) but the file will not save. I looked at what file types could be opened in WUFI and saw none that were compatible with sketchup Pro 2014 or 2015. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

The direct export of the geometrie sometimes doesn't work. We keep on improving it.

Nevertheless, to save geometry as an .wps and open it in WUFI Passive should work. Is there an error message, after the click on 'save geometry' in sketch up?
The .wps files are openable in WUFI Passive, in the open project file form, you can switch to 'WUFI Passive-SketchUp geometry files (.wps)' with the dropdown above the open, cancel buttons.

Im having the same issue using sketchup 2017.

mentioned this in another forum.

My building imports perfectly.

The shading geometry (new PHIUS shading protocol) will not import....no matter what I try.
