2D PDF/EPS Export Details

      NOTICE: SketchUp 2015 is here! When you look at this Knowledge Center article, be sure to pick "SketchUp 2015" from the red box above to see the 2015 version of that content. If there is no version picker, this content applies to all versions of SketchUp.

This is a Pro only feature.

The PDF and EPS export is used to export vector SketchUp files for use in other vector-based editing programs like Adobe Illustrator.

Warning: Some graphic features of SketchUp, including textures, shadows, smooth shading, backgrounds, and transparency, cannot be exported to PDF and EPS.

Text and Dimensions

SketchUp will attempt to output text annotation and notes to your 2D drawing. Please note the following limitations:

  • Text and dimension entities that are obscured (partially or totally) by other geometry in the SketchUp drawing area export on top of the geometry.
  • Text and dimension entities that are partially clipped by the edges of the SketchUp drawing area are not exported.
  • Certain fonts may not export exactly.
