Tip STANDALONE EDGES from SKETCHUP

I don´t know if this counts as polygons,  :-P
But it's good to know that not need to extrude a circular or square when you need to make a representation of tensioned wire or a railing.
The incredible thing is how well it take Lumion, including it can select, as if it were a layer and applied a color, even a luminence (overbright).
A detail from Sketchup, I don´t assigned the box export edges, otherwise it would do is export all edges, including those who don´t want to show.
The good news is that exports only those edges that are drawn as lines and without forming a polygon.
I hope you understand me and find it as interesting as me. Greetings.

yes, you are right,
the skp-line interpretation as object is fantastic, have also made some experiments with light etc.

Indeed. Those are (officially) called "standalone edges" and have been made to export particularly for such cases (to Google Earth of course). This came up especially when there was a GE modelling contest for bridges and a lot of them have those cables which - when modelled as tubes - can bloat poly count.
