|Exception: Undefined Prefix XSI found|
In the KMZ/KML, there is a "XSI" prefix to an XML attribute that is throwing an error on import
The "XSI" prefix needs to be removed from the KMZ/KML.
If you're using a GIS platform to generate these KMLs there may be a way to eliminate that attribute during your export process
|Exception: Not enough edges - at least 3 required|
In order for a KMZ/KML to be successfully imported into SketchUp, the Google Earth polygons need to have at least 3 sides so that faces can be created in SketchUp. Polygons cannot themselves be lines or have lines attached to a polygon (see the image below).
To prevent this error, make sure to remove all 'lines from the KMZ/KML.
|Exception: wrong argument type Geo::Point3d (expected Array)||SketchUp cannot create faces based on a single Google Earth polygon with multiple objects. All objects have to be their own polygons. A common example is if you have a site with a keepout area in the center, the site and the keepout area have to be two separate polygons. In the example below, each object will have have to be its own polygon instead of just one.|
To prevent this error, make sure to all areas that will become faces, need to be their own polygon in Google Earth and should not be lumped into one Google Earth Polygon.
