Has anyone determined a conversion method to get 3D Sketchup files

into Inventor... i.e. while still retaining the color of it's individual mesh





After using Inventor Fusion to open Sketchup files in order to save for

available formats in Inventor... the conversion that worked the best for

us, was*.stl files... i.e. however, Sterelography files of course do contain

any color information... and once imported into Inventor, it is a single mesh...

so one cannot recolor individual elements in the assembly.
