I needed a bugle or a trumpet so I went the handy dandy https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com to look for some models...I found some that I liked but after 3 attempts and 3 different models - when I went to download the model in Sketchup 8 format...the only formats supported were from Sketchup 2017 thru 2014?!

Anyone else noticed this issue since the Muvizu ase | "ZiggyMesh" only uses Sketchup 8: http://muvizu.com/Wiki/wiki/57

Looking at this thread also says stick with Sketchup8: https://www.muvizu.com/forum/topic4783-how-do-i-.aspx

Any suggestions or workarounds?

with appreciation,

here are some links to other threads on the topic of Sketchup 8's obsolescence:



installing plugins to the right directory if you're using a newer version of Sketchup:

Edit required to fix the ASE exporter found at the end of this message is described near the end of the following thread:

link to the ASE exporter that will work with sketchup 2016 if you make the edit described above:

This is what I do.

I download the model I want using the Sketchup 2017 format. Load the model into 'Sketchup Make'. Export the model from 'Sketchup Make' in the 'Sketchup 8' format. Load it into 'Sketchup 8' and process from there.

Sketchup Make https://www.sketchup.com/download
Sketchup 8 https://google-sketchup.en.uptodown.com/windows/download/22553
