Since SketchUp for Web does not have unrestricted access to your computer’s file system, there are some special rules to follow when working with referenced texture files in 3D model import and export formats that support them, including; dae, 3ds, wrl, fbx, xsi and obj.

Import dae, 3ds:
When importing dae or 3ds files that include referenced texture images, you must first create a folder that includes the texture images, then create a zipped archive that contains the model (at the root directory of the zip archive) and the folder of images . Be sure that the model file includes proper paths to find its texture images before zipping things up.

Once you have created the zip archive, upload that through SketchUp for Web’s Import user interface.

Export dae, 3ds, wrl, fbx, xsi, obj:
On export from SketchUp for Web, a zipped archive file will be downloaded to your local disk for models that include referenced texture images. Most importing applications will not be able to unzip this archive file without your help. To import the model, you will need to unzip the archive first.
