DynaSCAPE CAD Cleanup Plugin
This plugin for Google SketchUp is a must-have for anyone bringing CAD drawings into SketchUp. This plugin is meant to cleanup your drawing and fix the main problems that occur when working with a baseline drawing converted from DynaSCAPE or imported as an AutoCAD file.
This plugin automates the cleanup process by running all the routines at one time and can literally save hours of cleanup for large CAD drawings. These routines, which can also be run separately, include extending lines that run short of their intended target, deleting short lines that overshoot their target, closing gaps wherever they exist, fixing overlapping lines and creating intersections, breaking lines where needed and creating faces wherever they can be made.
