Problems with Sketchup-composer Integration

Post by Messe » Mon Nov 16, 2020 2:23 pm

I am working with the VR Edition of your SimLab Composer 10.
In myuse-cases I am working with the SimLab Composer Integration for SketchUp a lot, so I can create this dynamic link between a SketchUp- and a SimLab-File.
Unfortunately I am facing the following big problem:
All the animations/sequences and Scene States which were created in SimLab Composer do NOT work anymore after I updated the 3D-model in SketchUp.
Even if my changes in SketchUp do not include the animated objects or the objects, that I saved Scene States of, none of these things is working.
Is there a way to solve my problem?

Thanks in advance

Integration and multiple updates between Composer and SketchUp will work for Rendering.

The following tutorial shows how to re-establish the connection after the two applications were closed

But updating the model does not update scene sates and animations as those are related to geometry and updating loads the geometry completely from SketchUp.

So creating Scene states and animations should be done after finishing the work in SketchUp
