I was watching that. I made the exterior in sketchup, and it is a .skp file, what file do I need it to be for the actual exterior file?

It needs to be either a .animated, .csv, .b3d, or .x file. I wouldn't recommend using .x, as I have seen it only a few times, but the others are frequently used.

You need to use a converter to export it to one of those formats from a 3DS file exported from sketchup. Google explains it better than I do.

Did that. There was no pages to convert 3ds to b3d if there was, you have to pay.
