In this tutorial I am demonstrating how you can import geometry that was created in SketchUp (and an image) into Trimble Creator so that we can add parametric behavior to it. I cover the basic import workflow, model cleanup, texturing, and parametric sizing here.

Trimble Creator is a tool/service that allows you to create parametric “Live Components” for SketchUp and lets you come up with some cool designs (or product configurators). You can try it for yourself at If you like, you can modify and download the Live Component that I created in this tutorial here.
