[solved] Daz Studio to load in Google Sketch-up
Re-texture any surface with transparencies to remove the transparency map and opacity settings.
Export your model as obj. (ignore invisibles, collect maps)
Use a 3d party OBJ import plug-in for sketchup, if you do a Google search you will find dozens of them.
Sketchup native Collada export appears to be unable to import models from Daz Studio or Blender that were exported in Collada format.
