I get the following error by exporting:
Project Path is not valid.
I think this comes because my pathname have a 'é' in his name. Is this something you can solve or something I need to get used to?
the full path is:
Z:\AW Projecten\200904 De Wit - Boué
You should not
have 'accented characters' in a project-name OR a project-path.
They are usually best avoided completely.
It is a know limitation of Sketchup as its version of Ruby doesn't cope well with such characters - when it checks to see if the specified folder exists it fails to find it as unicode-characters confuse it. It is complex to trap for...
So please use simple alphanumerics only.
Octane Render has even stricter file/path naming rules - it won't accept spaces and most punctuation [other than a '_' or '-'] within the project-name either... the OBJ/MTL file importers do not like spaces or complex characters in file-names/paths either...
The Exporter tries to make a suitable name from the SKP name - so if it's the same as the project-path folder name then I expect it'll come up with200904_De_Wit_-_Boué
- however, that is still not acceptable to Octane itself, because it has the e-acute [é
] in it...
The name should use only 'a-z' 'A-Z' '0-9' with '_' and '-' as separators.
So try typing-in or editing the project-name to read say200904_De_Wit_Boue
[if you prefer 'camels' to 'snakes' - e.g. 'DeWitBoue' versus 'de_wit_boue']
You will be prevented from typing in anything that is 'non-alphanumeric'...
I'll look at some better trapping of the default project-name to avoid it containing accented characters at all - look for new update...
However, you must ensure compliance of naming in the project folders too...
Hope this helps...
