Ezicad now contains a “layer feature table” In the picture shown this works on any closed DWG polylines found. For example in the table shown look at line 4. Any closed polylines found on layer “BEAM2″ have a vertical offset of 2.7 meters applied. Furthermore the face is also extruded a distance of 0.15 meters. If offset has only the one entry then this distance is applied to each point in the face. You also have the option of specifying a vertical offset for each point. For example look at line 5. Each entry is separated by a comma. This also works for the extrusion column.
This effectively translates our 2D CAD design into the 3D Sketchup format. The process can be repeated iteratively before continuing with SketchUp.
