View Full Version : strange collision behavior after export from Sketchup?

01-23-2012, 11:51 AM
Hi all,
I have a few models that I downloaded from Google's 3d warehouse. I followed the instructions in this WorldViz knowledge base article (http://kb.worldviz.com/articles/1413), but there were some export options in my version of SketchUp (8) that weren't covered in the KB article.

I have no problem getting them into my Vizard world. However, when there is a collision, I sometimes (more often than not) get an error along the lines of:

File "<string>", line 1
SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing

I am wondering if the mysterious export settings may be the reason for this error. Any ideas?

Thanks much!

Can you attach a sample model and script that shows the problem or upload it here (http://www.worldviz.com/support/upload.html) for us to look at.

Hi Jeff,
Sorry for the delay getting back to you. I seem to have solved the problem by offsetting the model from the floor plane by .01 in the z dimension. Thanks for your willingness to help though!
