Sketchup OBJ Importer Doesn't Show Up In File Import

I have downloaded and installed “FluidImporter_Win32_1_0_5.exe” with supervisory permissions on a Windows 7 - 64 Bit system that has Sketchup 8 Pro.

I get a start menu folder that says “Fluid Inporter for SketchUp” with an uninstall icon, but when I start Sketchup and go to File=>Import, I don’t see and options for OBJ file types.

in the “C:\Program Files (x86)\SketchUp\SketchUp 2013\Importers” folder I also don’t see any new DLLs for OBJ

The Uninstall seems to work fine and says it’s uninstalled, but when I re-install I have the same problem.

Is there a different DLL for Windows 7 64 bit?

Any other suggestions?

Is there anything other than copying the DLL into that folder and doing a REGEDIT on it in the install? If not, Is there a way I can get a copy of the DLL and do the REGEDIT myself?

Thanks in advance


Hi HMArnold,
FluidImporter is incompatible with SketchUp 2013. We’ll look into the issue.

Thanks, Nicola

We just released FluidImporter 2.0 for SketchUp 2013. We decided to make it available for a small fee to help support the development. You can download the 30-Day trial (full-featured) in the download page.
