The way I get models from sketchup into muvizu is with 2 free programs, Sweet home 3D and Daz3D. First I download the model in Collada format from the 3D-warehouse. Sometimes there is a KMZ file, that will also work. It usually downloads as a zip file, you don't have to unzip it. It doesn't have to be furniture, can be any model.

- Sweet home 3D -

Open up Sweet home 3D and under Furniture, click Import furniture. This opens up the wizard.





Choose the zipfile you downloaded. It can handle a couple of file formats.



click continue >



You can adjust the orientation and click continue >



You can adjust the size and colors and if you want to add it to your catalog of models. Click continue and Finish.



Try to center the model on the 0 axis.




Select the model and under 3D view, click Export to OBJ format and on the popup choose export selection.



Not Export all, because then it exports a ground plane in it. Now you're done in Sweet home 3D.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Daz3D -

Open Daz3D and go to file > Import… and select the OBJ you exported out of Sweet home 3D.





Set the scale to 50% and click Accept.



Select the model and under File, click export…



Choose FBX as file type. In the popup set Output Options to FBX 2014. Check Collect Textures to folder. Check Selected and Props and click Accept.

- Note that the objects are not very smooth, some models work beter than others -

Now go and import it in muvizu...

Good luck!
