hmmm.. no takers.
ok I'll try posting at SW labs..
unfortunately they dont seem to pay too much attention to the shop counter there..
Yeah the SW Labs blogs - does anyone at SW actually maintain those? You can hear the crickets.
I have just loaded SW 2010, the 64-bit Collada exporter, Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate and SketchUp 7.1. whew.
I was able to get SW to export Collada *once*, then everytime since when I try to export, SW crashes.
Very unhelpful. I, too, am trying to get SW data to other renders, like Modo. Unfortunately, Modo and SW have not yet released the new "native" import plugin for Modo, so I have to use back doors, like Collada. This too is not working.
Let me know if you get yours working. Good luck.
...yeah ok...I posted to the labs forum but no reply (yet?)...must be a lot going on in the back rooms...
hopefully somebody gives them a prod.
I found an apt picture..

That's really funny.
Myself, I would just like to hear if SolidWorks 2010 is compatible with the Collada exporter. If not, are they working on it, and when might it be available?
To me, it seems like - if you want to be able to *say* you have a certain functionality, but it isn't really ready for Prime-Time, then just release it as a "Labs" plug-in, and then you don't even have to update it or support it. Heck, you don't even have to respond to questions about it. But you can still *say* you have this functionality.
