Exporting textures from Sketchup to Vizard
I am exporting a simple model from SketchUp into Vizard ( viz.add(file.dae) ).
The basic shapes look fine but the textures do not load in Vizard .The output reports warnings like this:
"Warning: could not find file "/Z:/PEOPLE/Lilith/showermodel2/texture9.jpg"
This is the correct pathname for the jpg, though, and there seems to be nothing wrong with the jpg itself.
The only things I can think of are the extra slash before the drive name, and the fact that they are forward- rather than back- slashes, but I don't think either of those are the issue.

Does anyone know what is going on and how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!

Have you tried placing the .dae file and the texture folder at the same level as shown in the Loading the model in Vizard section of this article?

Yes, the .dae file and the folder containing the textures are in the same level, same folder. I think I followed everything according to the article.

Can you upload the model here so I can take a look?

Sure, the upload reference code is 621666.
Thanks for your time!

When I loaded the model the textures were there. What is the version number of Vizard 3 that you are using? Check that by going to Help -> About Vizard.

That seems to have been the problem! I upgraded to the most recent version of Vizard3 and the textures are there now.
Thanks for your help!
