How would I go about converting a Minecraft world into a Google SketchUp map? I know how to do it SketchUp to MC world but not MC world to SketchUp.
Google Sketchup can import data in the following formats:
- SketchUp (.skp).
- Google Earth terrain.
- 3DS (.3ds).
- DEM (.dem, .ddf)
I've done a bit of research and there are plenty of 3DS resources of Minecraft elements freely available, so creating a Minecraft landscape in Sketchup should be possible.
It looks like in order to import a Minecraft world into Sketchup you'll need to go via another program though. j-mc-2-obj generates OBJ models from Minecraft worlds. These obj models can then be imported into another program like 3DS max, and then exported again as a .3ds file.
I can't verify this method, as I don't have the appropriate software to hand, but it looks like it should be possible.
