Plugin Description

SimLab Inventor importer for SketchUp plugin, enables SketchUp users to import and edit Inventor models inside SketchUp.

Supported versions

The plugin is supported on SketchUp 2017, SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2015, SketchUp 2014, SketchUp 2013, and SketchUp 8, and can import Inventor files up to version 2016.

After downloading the plugin, it automatically registers itself in SketchUp, and adds "SimLab Inventor Importer" sub menu under SketchUp Plugins menu.

Before installing the plugin, a user needs to have a full version of Inventor installed, or to install the free Inventor Viewer 2015, and make sure to run the viewer at least once.

To start experimenting with the plugin features download the plugin, from this page, and register a free trial license. For a step by step instructions please, visit SimLab Licensing step by step.

Importing Inventor models into SketchUp can be done with actual design dimensions, set inside Inventor, by unchecking the Auto scale Imported Model option in the Adavanced Settings window. This window can be accessed by clicking the Settings option in the plugin sub-menu. On the other hand, if a user needs to import an Inventor model to complete a scene, checking the Auto Scale Imported Model option will scale the model according to the scene's dimensions.
