[SketchUp] Add support for SketchUp 2016 import

Scene Management


Repro steps:
1) Open the project SketchupRepro
2) Notice the two files - Untitled and Untitled2015
3) Notice Untitled is recognized as Sketchup model, but doesn't import correctly
4) Open it up in Sketchup and Save as Sketchup 2015
5) Notice the model is now imported correctly in Unity (this was done and saved as Untitled2015)

    I’m on 2017.3.1f1.
    Tried to save as .skp 2017/2015/Sketchup 8.
    Import works but no Textures and Materials.

    I am currently using 2017.3 and the .skp file is still not working for me.

    I agree that this is an important issue. The release notes for 2017.2 suggest that this has been fixed but I am still experiencing the same problem with 2017.2. I see the 2017.3 beta release notes also have something on this which suggests it's still ongoing.

    Thanks for sharing this. I kept wondering why my SketchUp model (built in version 2017) wouldn't import to Unity 2017.1. After downsaving it to version 2015, I was able to import it. It really is a bummer that the documentation doesn't say which versions of SketchUp solve this issue.

    BUMP. Any movement on this? Please update the docs.

    What combination of Sketchup/Unity are actually working?

    I think it's more important to add an error message when import fails because I spent a long time trying to figure out why my model wasn't updating. I don't care so much about supporting the latest version (Sketchup can export to older versions easily), but knowing when the import fails and why my model isn't updating is important because the same problem is likely to return next year, or whenever Sketchup is updated again.

    There should be support for not only 2016 but also 2017.
    Also i totally agree with EXNINJA.
