Solidworks to Sketchup Export Scaling Issues

I wonder if you can help?


I'm running Solidoworks 2011 on a 64 Bit machine.

I have recently purchased some sycode software to export parts and assemblies out from native Solidworks into SKP (Sketchup) format.


I have just exported a sofa which is some 5.3ft wide and after converting its come into Sketchup as 135ft wide.

So it looks like its scaling it from a metric to imperial sclae and therefore multiplying it by 25.4 times.

I've asked sycode if I can influence the export scale but they say they cannot.

So apart from scaling down my model in solidworks then exporting or doing the same in Sketchup (which is a bit late as the file sizes are huge as a consequence)

I'm at a loss.


Any alternative ideas?
