use google sketchup model in edgecam? Answered

I want to use a landscape i made in sketchup(a mountain range) and mill it out of polystyrene using edgecam. Maybe there is a way to convert to  autodesk inventor first?  The model is only a face, which is why its hard to use in a solid modeling program. Ive used a rough face before on the cnc machine.

Standard SketchUp only exports Collada 3D files. 

Look up "SketchUp Export Plugins" on Google, and you find

STL is a pretty standard format for you.

I suggest you look at your copy of EdgeCam, see what it will import, and then look for the appropriate plugin !
