Hi, everybody!

I want to ask you. I have a model in google sketch up, then I export it onto stl extension. But, when I import it to the pyrosim (CAD file), I failed. Anybody can help me, please?  :)

Domo arigato!

It's hard to know what went wrong without more detail. Could you explain what went wrong?

Also, here is a link to a video that may be helpful if you haven't seen it already:

Hi!
I'm a new user and wanted to have a look at the demo video showing how to import google sketch up, but all I see is that "the movie is private", do I need permission to watch it?

Thank you!

It looks like that video is now set up to force you to watch from our website. Here is a working link:

I don't know if the videos are still intended to be "private" of if that was just an oversight. Maybe we can get Bryan to weigh in.
