I want to have a software, (perhaps a google sketchup api, or an executable file for linux) that extract points on the outer surface of objects in google sketchup files. That means I want to extract point cloud from google sketchup files. The output format can be anything from xml, csv, or some format that is easy to work with matlab. I want the code to input the sketchup file, the number of points and export point cloud that is uniformly distributed on the outer surface of the object. The algorithmic aspects can be discussed.
