Hi - I'm using the free sketchup version on a mac. I created an object and annotated it with dimensions. I installed the plugin for exporting .dxf files, but when I open the resulting .dfx file in Solidworks eDrawings, I do not see any dimensions. It's sure to be my error, but can you point me in the right direction?
I downloaded the trial version of Sketchup Pro, and used it's export to create a .dfx file. When I open that in Solidworks, I do see the dimensions.
Thanks for the help.
Dimensions not export

I'm afraid this shortcoming is by design. I made the plugin to export just the 3D model itself for CNCor 3D printing applications. It should be possible to modify the plugin to export dimensions - but I don't plan on doing it myself. It is open source so perhaps you could get some one who knows Ruby to have a look?
All the best
