Step 1: Install the Artlantis Export Plug-in for SketchUp




The first thing you need to do is to install the Artlantis export plug-in for SketchUp. This plug-in will allow you to export your SketchUp models directly to Artlantis 5, without losing any information or settings. You can download the plug-in for free from the Artlantis website[^1^]. The plug-in is compatible with SketchUp Pro 2020, 2019, and 7, and with Artlantis 2020, 2019, and 7.


Step 2: Choose Your Export Options




Once you have installed the plug-in, you can access it from the File menu in SketchUp. Select Export > Artlantis Render Studio File. A dialog box will appear with various options to customize your export. Here are some of the most important ones:


  • Export by components & groups hierarchy: This option will preserve the structure of your SketchUp model in Artlantis, by exporting each component and group as a separate object. This will make it easier to edit and manipulate your model in Artlantis.



  • Export the selection only: This option will export only the selected entities in SketchUp, instead of the whole model. This can be useful if you want to export a specific part of your model, or if you want to reduce the file size.



  • Use layer colors to define materials: This option will assign a material to each object in Artlantis based on its layer color in SketchUp. This can be useful if you want to quickly apply colors and textures to your model in Artlantis, or if you want to use the same materials for multiple objects.



Step 3: Save Your Export File




After choosing your export options, click OK to save your export file. The file will have the extension .atl, which is the native format of Artlantis. You can then open this file in Artlantis 5 and start rendering your model.


Step 4: Use a Reference File (Optional)




If you want to update your model in SketchUp and keep the changes in Artlantis, you can use a reference file. A reference file is a link between your SketchUp model and your Artlantis file, that allows you to synchronize them automatically. To use a reference file, follow these steps:


  • In SketchUp, export your model as usual, but check the option "Create a reference file" in the dialog box.



  • In Artlantis, open the .atl file that you exported from SketchUp.



  • In Artlantis, go to File > Open Reference File and select the .skp file that corresponds to your .atl file.



  • In Artlantis, go to File > Synchronize Reference File. This will update your .atl file with any changes made in your .skp file.



You can repeat step 4 whenever you want to update your model in Artlantis. You can also use multiple reference files for different parts of your model.
