Does anyone know how to get a sketchup(free version) to 3ds Max. You can export it as a .3ds file but that is only in sketchup pro. They are basically the same program except the exporters. Do any of you know how to get around this and convert or something to get a model into 3ds Max. PLEASE help me if you can, I really need it, and would greatly appreiciate it!

    I wouldn't use Sketchup for game models, it really isn't so suitable for the task because it sometimes produces messy results and bad optimization
