Sketchup import question

Hi guys,

Quick problem that I'm hoping there's a simple answer to  :wink:

I have succesfully imported a splendid house and pool in to JME, which is great news as I now have a tool I can start to work with. However, I notice that he house inside walls are also brick, despite me setting them differently in Sketchup.

Am I missing a step in Sketchup? Is this a JME limitation because quads can only have one texture? I am hoping there will be a nice switch somewhere… But I do a lot of hoping!

I think I might put my code in here as well. It won't (I don't think) help answer the question, but it might be a quick-start for someone else looking to import from Sketchup (two hours it took me!)…

    private Node getSketchupNode() {
        // So far to get this to work, I have had to update the .kmz file to .zip
        // and extract the house.dae in it. Now place the textureX.jpg files in
        // the textures sub-directory. Finally, update the .dae file, changing
        // path to ./textureX.jpg for each file (ie no path details).
        // That seems to do the job!

        try {
            File f = new File("C:\Temp\house.dae");
            SimpleResourceLocator loc = new SimpleResourceLocator(new File("./textures").toURI());
            ResourceLocatorTool.addResourceLocator(ResourceLocatorTool.TYPE_TEXTURE, loc);

            ExtraPluginManager.registerExtraPlugin("GOOGLEEARTH", new GoogleEarthPlugin());
            InputStream gamemap = new FileInputStream(f);
            ColladaImporter.load(gamemap, "model");
            Node modelNode = ColladaImporter.getModel();
            return modelNode;
        } catch (Exception ex) {
            return null;
        } finally {


Does this import Sketchup or Collada?  Or are they the same thing?
