LWO Exporter Plugin for Google Sketchup

This is a basic LightWave object exporter for Google Sketchup 6. It may work in previous versions, but is completely untested there. All the usual provisos apply - this is VERY ALPHA software, which may wreck all your data and destroy any plans you had for actually leaving work on time for once. I make no promises *whatsoever* about its suitability for any purpose, at all.

That being said, you may find it useful in its current state. It exports the data in the SketchUp model to a LWO model file. It exports the geometry and material definitions, but only front materials are respected - back materials are completely ignored. Texture images are exported as UV mapped surface layers, and transparency is also supported. Smoothing is currently unsupported.

I would like to import a .lwo file into SketchUp but cannot find a plugin to accomplish this. Has anyone else done this? This would be an extremely useful plugin.

use COLLADA format from LW modeler (LW layout has also COLLADA but gets broken)
