Academic SketchUp License: Unable to See Your Land F/X Project When Importing from CAD into SketchUp

Issue

You have an academic SketchUp license, and you attempted to import a Land F/X project from CAD into SketchUp. When you open the Land F/X Projects dialog box to look for your project, however, you are unable to see it.

 

You may be able to see a significant number of other projects you don't recognize, but you're unable to see your own.

One complication of this network setting is that Land F/X project numbers must be unique and cannot overwrite each other. Therefore, if someone else has already created a project in SketchUp with the same number as your Land F/X project, you will be unable to import your project into SketchUp.

 

 

Solution

 

You can correct this issue easily by opening your Land F/X project in CAD, opening the Project Manager, and renumbering the project.
